Japanese Media “Spurs” on the Baroque trend

Japan’s Spur magazine’s October issue featured a pretty spread showcasing Dolce&Gabbana’s Baroque inspired FW13 collection.

dolce-gabbana-on-spur-magazine-october-issue-corsetSpur Magazine is a Japanese glossy which describe itself as  “The intellectual fashion magazine”. Aimed at late teens through to women into their 30s, Spur has a strong Japanese imprint, with a slightly more edgy side, less Vogue Nippon more Dazed and Confused.
