Military spending being what it is in this country, it is hardly any surprise that the influence that comes with all things armed forces should extend as far and wide as it does. This is true whether speaking about law enforcement or high fashion. On newsstands today, V117 delves into martial stylings for a jewelry feature by photographer Richard Burbridge starring Anok Yai. “The New Bling,” as the Patti Wilson-styled story is called pairs priceless jewels with what otherwise resemble battle fatigues. The result makes for a compelling series, not least because of the specialist Anok firing shots on the page. Attention!
