Just when I was trying to wrap my head around the fact that pre-fall pieces are hitting the stores, I was offered this stunning story from the upcoming WSJ. Magazine. Ludivine Poiblanc styled these beautiful images by photographer Lachlan Bailey. Even though summer hasn’t even begun, these pictures make me want to start a fall wish list, stat.
I’m inspired by the hair, it’s perfection. And Ludivine Poiblanc, an enormous talent, tops my must-profile list. Her styling, especially here, gives me hope that fashion is finally moving forward. Gone are the literal retro looks and super-sized pieces that swallow the wearer whole—this story may be a nod to the ’70s but, it still feels modern.
The June issue of WSJ. Magazine will be on newsstands May 30 and this story will be online May 21.
