More Beauty found on a Sunday stroll through couture. Many people say fashion – and it’s indulgences – is inexplicable and unpardonable in times of austerity and famine. I don’t see it that way. Of course regular folks don’t walk around in haute couture, or even pret a porter … most of us buy the trickle-down, “highstreet” version of the clothes. Affordable and throw-away-able. That’s if we even try find the style at all.
For me, high fashion, or even ready to wear; is more about art than everyday. It’s more about fantasy than reality. It’s more about whimsy than a 30degree wash cycle. It’s about looking at a Monet and wanting to fill a vase with flowers. These pictures are from Vogue Japan – they were shot in Japan, by an American, styled by an Italian, worn by a healthy Dutch model and shared by a number of international blog sites. Community.
