I thought about whether to post these photographs under NOTES À LA MODE or not because to me they are more about the photography than fashion; they have that balance between the artistic and fashion side that appeals to me. The clothes do play a role but it's not only about the clothes. These are part of an editorial called 'L’Ange Noir' that was captured by Ben Hassett for Numéro, issue #137.
If you are tired of the clichés and messages that the glossy magazines seem to deliver then perhaps Numéro is a magazine for you. "[It] was founded in 1998 by Elisabeth Djian [launched in 1999] ... When asked why she created Numero, Djian commented, 'I was bored with magazines that told me how to seduce a man. I wanted to create this magazine for an intelligent, smart woman who wants to read about art, design, music: not about stupidity – creams that take away wrinkles, you know, which is stupid'" (Wikipedia).
