The only fault I can find with Koray Birand’s shoot of Ieva Laguna for Vogue Hellas is that, in some of the shots, the setting is so bright and warm it goes against the fall clothing. Then again, that can hardly be called a fault. It’s like a surprise burst of sun on an autumnal day that makes you want to throw off your Gucci coat with it’s coloured fur trim (should you, like Ieva, be wearing one) and let your winter skin see some daylight.
Elsewhere in the shoot is the pure elegance of the styling taken indoors, the classic ’40s styling culminating in a green evening dress with plunging neckline that has all the hallmarks of a stand-out frock for the season and one that makes me think, loosely, of the emerald dress Keira Knightley was costumed in for Atonement.
A blissful interpretation of a strong era of fashion, as styled by Michalis Pandos, this editorial shows you how to steer some of fall 2011‘s pieces away from the 70s and back to an earlier decade – should you wish to make that leap.
