At what moment we threw out the rulebook is hard to say. Age old adages ‘blue and green should never be seen and ‘never wear tights with open toed shoes’ are almost laughable now and it’s only a question of time before ‘never leave the house naked’ is yet another fashion rule to be broken. If Italian Eleonora Carisi as photographed by Mr Newton is anything to go by it’s already happening.
Not to tell you to run the gauntlet and go all sheer-tastic just yet, but to celebrate Summer and an evolution of print; pair placid geometrics with day glo. Colour blocked jeans with kimonos and elegant ruffles with perspex and punk jewelry for a pretty luxe take on this seasons trends where the only rule that applies is to be a law unto oneself.
