While I sometimes feel the word whimsy is overused in the fashion sense, this editorial of Karolina Kurkova seems to warrant it. It’s in the unique yet wearable combinations of colours, in the strange layerings like multiple hats and scarves, and in pretty much anything that involves spangled-and-snakeskin Prada.
Michele Beaurenaut’s edits are also the kind that offer up a platter of practical styling ideas. You can pair a sweater from Cos on the high street with a satin skirt from Balenciaga. You can wear a slouchy Stella McCartney knit with sports-striped pants. A brightly coloured fur over – pretty much anything. In the Elle France shoot, things are wearable but they’re seldom dull.
