In my latest Style in Film blog post I was mentioning that Lauren Hutton’s wardrobe was designed by Basile. After a little research I discovered the Italian brand’s Spring/Summer collection from 1980, photographed by Irving Penn, and fell for this look. Isn’t it a leading look for spring? The only change I would make would be choosing a leather jacket instead of the cardigan. It would be more me. The styling is beautiful, and, with a different hair-do and jewellery, it would be up-do-date today, practical and modern again, more than three decades later. And there we have it again, sandals and stockings. If you’d like, you can see more of the collection here.
