    The whole editorial is beautiful. The styling is great, the location is beautiful and the photography is fantastic. I just find it a shame they didn’t use one of the beautiful Asian models – I think Sui He’d make a great Geisha.

    • Right, but isn’t using a Chinese model to represent Japanese culture equally inappropriate?

  2. Ausgezeichnet! From the recent Geisha Punk to this Geisha Glam, there’s a whole new world of possibilities for different silhouettes, prints, settings… (but yeah, why not an Asian model?  Fei Fei would have be perfect, too).

    Amazing location and atmosphere. I don’t love the model, but think using an Asian girl would have been too cliche. It’s nice to mix things up,and take a modern approach.
