A Secret World by Michael Baumgarten for Vogue Gioiello

Nothing is quite as tempting as a glittering gem – whether it’s dangling from a necklace or hidden in a bank vault. While fashion often plays into our fantasies about attaining wealth, every so often it ditches the aspirational and goes for the jugular by tapping into our darker desires. Always up for a challenge Vogue Gioiello, places finery in the hands of Michael Baumgarten who crafts a short but sweet ode to jewel thieves. While the story probably won’t inspire future Bill Masons to start a life of crime it’s a great little ode to the delinquent in us all.
