Valerija Kelava & Janice Alida | AnOther Magazine S/S 2011 by Damien Neva

High above the timberline of Magazine Mountain lie untold mysteries. With the spring thaw comes not only a torrent of fresh water, but also editorials that long ago should have featured on this page were it not for the glacial presence of the F/W 2011 show season. If there is one photographer whom should never be made to wait, then it is Paolo Roversi. Such is the strength of his work and its inimitable color that makes the decision to feature it on this page largely academic. The last time I spoke about Ravenna-born photographer, it was in relation to his Vogue Italia February 2011 story featuring Ford’s Valerija Kelava. At the time I suggested it wouldn’t be the last occasion the Slovenian would feature in one of his stories and I was not wrong. It so happens that Valerija along with Janice Alida feature in AnOther Magazine Spring / Summer 2011 photographed by Paolo Roversi. Styled by Olivier Rizzo the story dresses Valerija and Janice in a number of looks comprised of torpedo bras from Andy’s Chee-Pees, dyed cotton knickers throughout by Petit Beateau, stockings throughout by Grandicalze, various corsets, and the odd straw hat by Marc Jacobs. This story is at turns luxurious, decadent, and wholly “all undressed and nowhere to go” in its execution. The frequency of Paolo Rovers-Valerija Kelava stories shows no sign of flagging and I reckon there has to be another story in the offing. In fact, I think I know right where to look… .
