Any fashion magazine worth its salt provides equal parts fantasy to equal parts luxury shopping guide. To assess the worth of an editorial by any other measure would be tantamount to heresy. The latest issue of Vogue Ukraine toes this line to serve up an editorial that ticks these very fantasy and shopping boxes using none other than the likeness of Maja Salamon herself photographed by Łukasz Pukowiec. Starting with the category of shopping, the story whose title roughly translates as “Magic Lantern” runs rule over this season’s collections from the boldly colored to richly textured. Fantasy is provided with aplomb courtesy of retro lighting à la magic lantern and frizzed hair. Maja for her part delivers on the story’s promise and elevates fantasy to a shoppable reality.
