It’s black and grey

It’s something I’ve always loved about this first photo lensed by Arthur Elgort: maybe it’s Karen Mulder’s attitude, but it’s also something about her outfit, an edginess, that mix of classic and extravagant. The ensemble she’s wearing consists in fact of a black jersey mini dress with a velvet collar under the picturesque draped organza skirt, both Gianfranco Ferrè creations. That’s a look I love for the sake of fashion. And I love the second look for its cool simplicity and just because of how easily I can translate it into my wardrobe, with already existing pieces in my closet.
