The end of the year is looming like a fast-gathering storm: no matter how far in advance the forecasts, it always feels sudden and unexpected. And in its precursory trail comes another milestone event – the festive season. For many, December is a month scattered full of luncheons, days spent trawling for Christmas gifts, family affairs, cocktail soirees. The latter can present themselves as a wardrobe challenge, the challenge of staying elegant and chic but with a holiday spirit.
Like an angel from up on high sent down to serve as inspiration comes a sultry yet ultimately very classic Magdalena Frackowiak. The styling by Sarah Gore Reeves pins this type of glamour on soft metallic beading and paillettes, the kind of maxi-dresses that billow and float, and elegant 40s style jumpsuits.
Of course for the Northern Hemisphere whose Christmases are chilly and frosted with snow, outerwear can be the finishing touch to any holiday outfit. In this shoot it’s all about the glamorous vintage-style fur – or faux fur.
