Generally I'm more of a fan of 'real life' editorials-ones with more of a story, set outside or in rooms with a bit of furniture instead of a blank backdrop. This is for a number of reasons, I think-studio shoot after studio shoot can frankly become boring, while the variety of outdoor shoots makes them more interesting to see. Plus, I personally find it catches my imagination more to see clothes in interaction with even a vague suggestion of normal life-fashion is isolated from the real world enough as it is, and shooting perfectly wearable jeans and suits in pristine studios sometimes seems to me a waste of good clothes.

However, this isn't to say that there aren't any studio shoots which can capture the imagination-indeed, sometimes the almost clinical precision of the lighting and contrast of clothes and stark background can provide the most aesthetically pleasing experience of all, especially in black and white. And so here is a (small) selection from my photo folder which is growing worryingly fast and will soon require a whole hard drive of its own...
