“In bloom” is the title of the editorial in the July issue of this British magazine.
A woman, hair and complexion almost white, melts amidst the intense colors of tulips in dutch fields. The model, corralled by flowers, moves as though she were a ballerina. She does not seem intimidated by the immensity of the field. She blooms, just as the plants surrounding her do. The superposition of clothes, of layer over layer, evokes the manner of dressing of women in nomadic groups like Zingaros or the Romani. The garments tangle and creep up the young woman body, but she moves gracefully.It is the color. It is the print. It is the texture. It is the scent that we imagine. It is the breeze that we dream. It all colludes in a sea of perceptions into which one would like to dive.
A brilliant way of bringing close to the reader the most varied clothing -Emporio Armani, Jonathan Sounders, Y-3, Balenciaga, Guess and even a second hand clothing store, Beyond Retro, are some of the brands represented in this rich editorial. The “baroque homeless” syle in these looks is developed through the right choice of garments with plenty of character and whose traits potentiate one another when they become pasted. Textures – pleats, furs, tutus, angora wool, mesh-, classic prints like kashmir or Scottish tartan, floral prints or prints of snakeskin, and single color cloths. Garment overlays. A mass of fabrics that seems the result of a chamaleonic mimesis with the landscape. Clothes that liberate. To dress is to cover our body.It is to conceal. But it is also to will, to decide.
Get dressed to get free. This is Dazed & Confused’s invitation.
