So Fi and I finally got around to booking our little trip to Paris. I’ve actually not graced the cobbled streets of the City of Light since 2006- far far too long considering it’s a mere train ride away. I suppose the places closest to home ironically tend to be the ones you visit least! We won’t be going til early June, but with the Eurostar you’ve gotta book well in advance- those seats seriously fill up fast. Can’t wait to revisit the ‘done and dusted’ museums, lunch at Cafe de Flore and pick up some goodies at Colette!! Getting in the mood by looking over this old editorial from Black Magazine #11:
Marloes Horst by Paul Empson for Black #11, November 2009. See the rest of the spread at Fashion Gone Rogue.
With clothes by Chanel, Dior and Alaïa, this editorial has a very ‘dominatrix’ feel to it- I like how the styling doesn’t somehow typify Paris in its entirety. Fi and I will hope to bring you some great street-style fashion shots when we head there (not quite like this of course!) So watch this space.
It seems that the ever-popular fixation with the Roaring 20′s is still going strong. We’ve seen flapper dresses galore on both the High-Street and in designer collections, particularly since Gucci’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection which gave a nod to Art Deco geometry and Gatsby-esque drop waists.
For Elle Ukraine’s April 2012 Edition, Natalia Siodmiak models Jazz-Age inspired pieces by Gucci, Alberta Ferretti, and Alaia, in a shoot which centres around the gaieties of Parisian street life. Similarly, Herieth Paul evokes some of that Josephine Baker-style glamour for Flare Magazine’s April 2012 Edition, modelling gowns by Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana.
