Undemanding luxury

To some, luxury would be about the number of zeros on the price tag. It would lie in the opulence of clothes and in the bling-factor of diamonds.

But in fashion’s back-alleyway, luxury is not always what’s seen with the naked eye. The softness of fur on the skin and swept-back curls is an understated form of luxury, also seen in the September issue of Glamour Netherlands.

The editorial, featuring Dutch model Nimue Smit, celebrates luxury that transcends credit cards, flashy cars and stamped logos. She enacts as the enduring character that never ages, akin to the subdued, simple and minimalist clothes that turn out to be the real heroes of the shoot. Her mannequin-like stare works brilliantly with the shoot’s concept of effortless and undemanding luxury. The glimpse of the brown leather wristwatch in a few shots subtly marks the fight against time. Silky white, velvety black and beige outfits keep the wardrobe mature and ladylike.
