The trappings of labor have undoubtedly changed since the days of the Industrial Revolution. Whereas ash and soot once came from those dark satanic mills, today can be achieved using a cosmetics brush. The latter is certainly the case in the April 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Germany in a story featuring Sabrina Ioffreda photographed by Gianluca Fontana. Titled “Der neue Arbeitsstil” or “the new work style” auf Deutsch, this story rolls up its collective sleeves to celebrate denim and topstitching. To that end, Sabrina wears her hair in a nearly damp state and is given the appearance of being sooty via a clever application of makeup. Precisely where Sabrina is supposed to have worked in this series is open to interpretation, but agreement about the work the Argentinian beauty has put in on the page is absolute.
