Her Dark Materials

Magdalena Frackowiak by Catherine Servel for The Sunday Telegraph September 2010

She’s terribly cute.  Although the styling is sexy, Magdalena comes across more cute than anything.  And it totally works.  At most, I can say there’s a naive sensuality about her.  I like it though.  There’s so many “sexy” editorials where the girl is just simply trying too hard.  And as Carine Roitfeld says “If you’re going to be sexy in a photo, you’d better be thinking about sex rather than about being sexy.”  Magdalena has a playfulness and naturalness in this editorial.  And I don’t know if she’s thinking about sex, but she’s certainly not thinking about being sexy.  She’s just doing it.

Erdem Spring 2011

Initial reaction: so prettttttty, she squeals.  That’s exactly what happened. No joke.  It’s a beautifully crafted collection that will delight young and old alike.  The angelic lace confections had the right amount of enticing peeks of skin.  The print dresses were unlike any I’ve seen with delicately etched flowers painted on the dress itself.

And those shoes!  I’m such a shoe-aholic and a total sucker for shoes that lace high up the calf.  The cool thing about these is the matching print to some of the dresses.  They complement the look without being too matchy -matchy and stop the look from being romantic head-to-toe.

Acne Spring 2011

Serious fashion clout.  Acne presented in Princess Margaret’s apartment at Kensington Palace.  This Swedish line has been a fan favorite for a while now for their clean lines, excellent basics, and well-crafted jeans.  Out of all the minimalist I’ve seen for Spring, I like this one the most.  There’s a really seventies feel with the sunglasses but that was the clever part.  They play right into the seventies fascination and softness with tiny little details.   Jonny Johansson subtly weaves in a romantic softness amidst the clean lines with fluttery silks and easy shapes.
