Get Busy, Get Dizzy for Paper Magazine

Photographed by Emily Shur for Paper Magazine, this spread combines many patterns for a fascinating result. Who knew that the layering of several different patterns could be so attractive to the eye? Or do you find them overwhelming and excessive? I see the layering of west African-inspired and perhaps Japanese-inspired patterns. This reminds me of the Wafrica Kimono which combined elements from these cultures very beautifully. It seems then, that we are not as different as we may think. Maybe this photoset provides strong visual evidence of that.
