When Hearst hired Jay Fielden as new Town and Country magazine editor in 2011, the media company made a canny choice, and one that has significantly improved the look of the publication. But in the April 2013 issue, Fielden has outdone himself, with a fashion spread that has the mark of his former Vogue co-worker Grace Coddington all over it.
The colors and the whimsicality of the photos–and the women, of course–have something of Henry Darger about them. Given that Town and Country is still a print publication, it wouldn’t be sporting (or legal) to reproduce the photos here. We recommend that those who value aesthetics purchase the magazine.
