Laura Kampman for Vogue Italia February 2012

Our favourite part of our most recent visit to New York was our visit to The Whitney Museum of American Art to see the Real/Surreal exhibition featuring famous pieces from Man Ray, Charles Sheeler, Edward Hopper, Yves Tanguy, Helen Lundeberg, Mabel Dwight, and of course Salvador Dali from the museums permanent collection and this Vogue Italia cover transports us back.

Shot by Steven Meisel, the cover evokes the two strong currents in fashion.
