More often than not, fashion editorials serve a purely aesthetic purpose. But sometimes they make a political statement, and that’s when wereally pay attention.
We came across a Lior Nordman-lensed editorial for Israeli fashion magazine Belle Mode viaTrendland last month. Nordman photographed female models in provocative twists on modest dress — one wears a see-through full-length skirt, another bears a breast through the keyhole of a long-sleeved blouse — surrounded by men in traditional ultra-Orthodox Jewish garb on a public bus. The images are striking, to say the least.
