Vogue Korea: One Dream

Posted on July 30, 2012

Darlings, here’s your Pretty of the Day, a dreamy, flower- and vegetable-filled concoction from Vogue Korea. We see no reason to add one more word.

Editorial titled “One Dream” for Vogue Korea featuring model Ji Hye Park photographed by Bosung Kim and styled by
Seo Young Hui.

      English magazines, get it together please.

      • Sobaika

        Specifically American Vogue.

        • Pannyx

          I’d say specifically Italian Vogue.

        • lbl

          I was trying too be kind by not mentioning names, but yeah that’s the magazine. lol

          • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

            you mean you don’t enjoy i-vogue’s overtly racist spreads?

      • PeggyOC

         Agreed.  Vogue Korea is consistently schooling the other Vogues.

    • l3icest3r

      Take note, Wintour.

    • snarkykitten

      So much to look at! My eyes explode with delight. But it gives off a vague coffin feeling, too

      very beautiful and peaceful, a gorgeous way to “end” the day :)

    • Judy_J

      Vogue Korea always does such imaginative work!  The images are beautiful and stunning.

      Love the vintage luggage. 

      • Amy Ellinger

        yes, i desperately need a Union Jack mini-suitcase….like yesterday!

      A sublime hallucination.  Nuff Said.

    • SapphoPoet

      Very dreamy and surreal.

      South Korea appears to be this magical place of insane beauty where no one can tell what your clothes look like.

      (I should double check — this is South Korean vogue, right?)

      • Jarethee

         Yep it is (at least the names are Korean of everyone listed). I’ve lived here awhile, and in the big cities, Korean ladies BRING IT when it comes to looking amazing (At least in the bigger metropolitan cities, and Korean celebrities are generally gorgeously put together). The men dress well too, but a bit too ultra-feminine for my taste.

          One assumes the fashion editorials in North Korean Vogue are … very different.

          • kimmeister

            If there are any.

    • MilaXX

       I have no idea what it means, but I like.

    • SewingSiren

      I love Korea Vogue. So much more creative than American Vogue.

    • SpcilK

      A visual delight! There is so much to look at that the fashion gets lost.

    • joe_tey83

      Fuck, that’s BEAUTIFUL.

    • Jill Roberts

      It’s stunning.  I don’t know how to say this without being crude – does anyone else see those boats and the placement of the props and models as looking like…vulvas?  Take another look, it’s not as crazy as you think. Also, it’s no less beautiful.

      • http://womenshealthnews.wordpress.com/ RachelW

         Yes. Was just thinking, “I’ll be over here hiding in your flowery vulva.”

        • Jill Roberts

           Awesome.  :)

    • turtleemily

      I got excited thinking they were over-the-knee rainboots in the last photo until I put my glasses on and looked again.

    • ChelseaNH

      If fashion editorials were an Olympic event, Vogue Korea would be the odds-on favorite for the gold.

    • butterflysunita

      Always love Vogue Korea posts. So beautiful.  

    • afabulous50

      I guess I just don’t get “editorial” fashion.  None of it ever makes any sense to me.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      very life of pi, if pi was a fucking fierce vegan.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_RHLSUVX3NCPB4OSS5BM7GZIXUE P. Capet

      the shorter wedding dress, i really love. it makes me want to get married again just so i can wear it.  luckily, there are no male victims in sight.  

    • l_c_ann

      That so many of these are backgrounded by a (brand new) flat boat that I didn’t see until I got past the stuffs, then to the dresses, then to….the background.
      I saw some suggestions earlier about what the flat boat represented.  I’d add another dimension, based on having lived in a city with a huge Catholic population.  Many, many neighborhoods had statues of (the real) Madonna in at least half the front yards;  all of those statues were protected by masonry forms that are very close in shape to the flat boat on end.So, based on seeing all those Madonnas in so many neighborhoods,  I see many of these photos as Madonnas, all dolled up and posing, but Madonnas nonetheless.

    • guest2visits

      Please just get out of the damned boat, I can’t see what you’re wearing. The first couple of pics look like she’s laying down
      in the middle of alot of sushi rolls. The prints are very pretty.  The wedding dresses and the following two pics may be nice,
      but it’s difficult to appreciate the clothing; the setups don’t do much for them.

    • Jill Roberts

      The shape of the boat and the placement of the draperies, props, and models all remind me of…female anatomy (I say this with as much delicacy as I can manage).

      • http://twitter.com/thesquizz Lauren

         Glad I’m not the only one! I felt like “Vulvas! Vulvas everywhere!”

        • Jill Roberts

           We’re apparently in the minority, but once I saw it there was no unseeing it.  :)

      Man, I wish I’d been at the brainstorming session for this one. Designer leaps to feet, vision shining from his/her forehead: “I’ve got! Sheep, boat, LUGGAGE!” Everyone else: “Brilliant!”   And weirdly, it is. 

      • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

        The sheep was my favorite part!  :)

    • RzYoung

      Gorgeous, what a great concept, so imaginative! 

    • http://twitter.com/DarthJaeda Jaeda Laurez

      Vogue Korea is EVERYTHING. Such beautiful photoshoots. 

    • kingderella

      vogue korea, doing what it does.
      there is sheep. A SHEEP!

    • gsk241

      I’m traveling to Korea for the first time this fall, and I expect it to look exactly like this.

    • tallgirl1204

      River of Dreams?  Trying to make sense of the boats and the props.  Also, I want all of those fabrics used for bags in the first couple…

    • BazoDee

      lovely -lovely story. I see it as a young girl falls asleep on the way to the market in her boat  -and then dreams of travels, getting married and the fantasies in books. The last one confuses me a bit -it is sort of “old man and the sea” reminiscent -so I’m not sure if she is dreaming of that or if while she has been dreaming everything has been taken. 

      • kimmeister

        Uh, maybe in that last one, someone took her produce and her sheep while she was sleeping, and switched out her attire?

        • BazoDee

          That’s what I was thinking. I think it is meant to look a bit like undergarments. At the top of the boat is a scrap of fabric that resembles the first dress. 

          And the more I look at it with the Marlin in the foreground the more I think they were trying to conjure up “The Old Man and the sea” 

    • Diane_G

      Does anybody else see a slight..Pietà-like posing with this? Lady Madonna curled up with the Renaissance-like centered pictures (the technical term for that is lost on me, help me art majors)? Just me?
