Sometimes I think the readers of this blog take the images too literally as my suggestion of what you should wear or what I think is super fashionable. To be honest, I’m not sure I actually like anything she is wearing. However this image, as a concept, makes me think… but in the abstract.
To me, this image is in the same vein as the image below of the old Italian gentleman, with the hat and coat that are both patterned. I don’t know if anyone would run out and try to copy this look exactly, but it inspires us in an intangible way.
If you remember this photo was one of the images on Lucas Ossendrijver’s, Lanvin Homme, mood board when the The Selby shot his design studio.
All I’m saying is, sometimes, these images can make you think about something totally different than what the actual shot portrays.
