Colourful prints and eclectic textures. That’s what’s promised by the tagline of this editorial for Elle South Africa, in their “geisha-inspired world of kaftans and kimonos”.
Under the eye of stylist Sharon Becker, the shoot delivers on those promises. If you were after more inspiration on turning oriental fashion into a wearable wardrobe feat for spring 2012, the Ross Garrett-photographed shoot has some clues. Like plenty of colourful accessories (strands of coloured beads are a winner), floral prints, and a beauty look that doesn’t shy away from bold hues.
Of course, you can forgo the traditional headwear and boldly exotic hairstyles if you want to keep to a modern interpretation of the trend.
Starring model Alexandra Collins, you can view the rest of the editorial at the thumbnails above.
