The Best of Spring/Summer 2011


I have been waiting for this since Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011 wrapped. “The Collections” by Harper’s Bazaar UK for their February 2011 issue is a Norbert Schoerner-photographed masterpiece of all the best the season had to offer. The selections were picked by genius stylist Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou and arranged in the most ingenious, ravishing setting. It would have been perfect if someone cajoled Ruby Aldridge into shutting her mouth for a frame or two. Continue reading

While white-and-black sequins can easily be imitated without design fraud, an exact pattern is much harder to replicate without questions being raised. I believe Rachel also wore the original design to the Marc Jacobs after-party that following Fashion Week. No comment from my beloved Zoe Camp just yet. I die. Continue reading
