Saskia de Brauw by Ben Toms for Dazed & Confused June 2011

Hello there Dazed & Confused.  I always really enjoy its editorials.  And Saskia is quite lovely and dramatic in this deeply printed styling.  I love the darker color scheme as well.  I’m not normally a fan of prints; they feel a little too flamboyant for my tastes.  Not to mention prints are normally accompanied by a neon color scheme.  This is deeper without feeling muted.  The sense of fun from the prints is well retained.  Oh, and those Balenciaga spikes get me every time; I will forever be in love with those I think (at least I hope so!).  Saskia always a more androgynous look, giving the more feminine pieces a different feel.  While she does have a tendency to put her hand on her hip, I kind of really love the haphazard way in which she places her limbs.  It’s a little doll-like, perhaps adding more of a story to a rather ordinary concept.  I also like how the texture of the background works to complement the prints.  This is a great little piece that I highly enjoyed.
