These are some of the moments where you realize that Kenya is indeed a beautiful country that we sometimes take for granted. What is it ever going to take for us to appreciate the beauty and magnificence of our country if not for a giant Magazine like Vogue coming to town and showcasing our beauty to the world through a whole fashion spread. Vogue Japan shot its May 2016  Issue in Kenya which was dubbed ‘African Vibration’ so fitting for what Africa has to offer in more ways than one.

The magazine shoot features the beautiful Brazilian Model Renata Sozzi who is seen blending so well with the wildlife and even the local communities. The fashion editor that styled the beautiful Renata was Giovanna Battaglia showcasing beautiful and colorful traditional Maasai wear, lots of bead work and bold stripes.

The amazing images for the ‘African Vibration’ shoot were done by Erik Torstensson who captured all the beauty in nature, the people and the model perfectly. Chunky accessories can be seen on the model, even attractive head pieces that are everything African. Kenya’s natural beauty was brought out in this Vogue Japan May issue portraying Kenya’s tribal heritage more specifically the Maasai community plus our very own breathtaking wildlife in their natural habitat. Missoni and Stella McCartney were among the designers that were feature in this amazing Magazine photo spread.

What can I say, Kenya is more beautiful than we give it credit for. See the rest of the Vogue Japan May 2016 Magazine spread.

  1. I see your point, seems they have exhausted their own natural resources. When I was posting i was thinking, did those extras in the shoot get paid? And if they were, was it what they deserved? We might be getting into another form of scramble for Africa’s resources where they slowly slip in disguised as “mapping us in the world” anyway, lets hope they have no ill intentions.
