I will never tire of skirts, there is no one length I love in particular but the shapes here are wonderful, particularly the second from right, which I guess must be Miyake pleats.
The far left top was so lovely a mix of chiffon and merino wool, my favourite is the third from right, I love the scooped back particularly with the ankle length trousers. Next to her is 'that' Stella McCartney's coat as lovely in the flesh as it was on the catwalk.
It's All in the Detail
I love that leather shawl a genius way to update a dress, the denim skirt in the center is just sublime, if you look at the cut and raw selvedge, what's not to love. The second on the right I think would look better if her vest was red but I loved the lace back and red bag.
I Can't wear cream, I would spill something so I will just be content to gaze longingly at a colour that represent s a lifestyle! One of leisure!! Seriously the second on the left was my favourite every layer was so light and creamy.
Splash of Colour
I would really really love to own the first dress on the left, a really beautiful combination of acid yellow and dark grey wool. in fact I love all of these.
And these, it appears Gallerina's favour black so as not to detract from the art work what I love is despite a dress code they all look so different. What these photographs struggle to tell is the height and size, the girl on the far left is tiny whereas next to her the woman is at least 5'10. I loved the third from left, especially her scarf and second from right looks lovely with the silver pendant and those metallic jazz shoes.
Another blog stole my thunder, in fact two blogs did because That's Not My Age went to the private view of the Louise Bourgois exhibition I want to see. I am not an altogether happy bunny but what can I do?
My sartorial images I hope convey the amazing breadth of style on offer. I love the way Frieze mixes up student style + Gallerina black and the very best of dressing for a certain age.
Trying to grab photographs was not easy as I was using my SLR, but it has an awesome zoom lens which made composition easier. I of course tend to focus on my personal favourite themes so not much that is wacky here. My main style focus is the silhouette I love seeing how people play around with shapes and textures. A fashion editor was bemoaning how the whole Mad Men Zeitgeist was already dated as it hit the shops as most fashion editors were rushing to channel the new silhouette from the Spring Summer 2011 shows. This to me completely misses the point of fashion and style, which is to take a thread and weave it into that we already have. That is why I can show you these photographs now and in 5 years time and I bet you there will be little that has changed in terms of overall themes. We will always covet the battered brown satchel, brown will always look lovely with grey. Cream will always ooze luxury and Gallerina's will always rock black.
I could happily have snapped a hundred more.
