Castle Couture

Thursday, February 10, 2011

There could not be a more perfect setting for couture then a castle, palace or estate.  Probably because couture's heritage is a regal one and associated in many ways with old money and a world far away from the every day one most of us inhabit.  Something fashion does very well is escapism and transporting both the wearer and viewer into a more beautiful place and time. 

This winsome shoot was shot by Jason Wu for L'Officiel Ukraine and features the sublime Mariana Idzkowska.  These amazing garments are from Elie Saab, Valentino, and Maison Martin Margiela among others.  I love the use of dark lips against the delicate garments.  These are really some very pretty pictures.
