I love this Sunday Times Style shoot I clocked last week, which looks like it was Xeroxed straight from the pages of an early 90s Elle. Everything from the soft focus ‘corporate girl about town’ vibe to the casting (Louise de Chevigny channelling Ines de la Fressange) and the gamine styling reminds me of Yasmin Le Bon-era French Elle – all that’s missing is the Filofax.
Particular highlights: the mini tan Hermes Birkin (I will be substituting with my Mulberry Small Maple tote), the boxy blazers, the Cartier watch and – of course – the hair. (more…)
Heads up: the tomas maier and uniqlo collaboration is here only a few days away.
