Fave Rerun: ‘Welcome to the Jungle’

Great fashion stories seem few and far between these days so I thought I’d rerun a favorite. This WSJ. Magazine editorial ran April 23, 2018.

Just when I was thinking that there is nothing that I want for summer, up pops this amazing story in the WSJ. Magazine. Carolyn Murphy + photographer Lachlan Bailey + stylist Geraldine Saglio = dream team. Guadeloupe as a location isn’t too terrible, either.

  • Love this! I am so tired of all the ruffles and dresses that look like you are going out for sorority rush in the 80’s. Why can’t I find any simple cotton dresses?

  • Gorgeous! The sandals are amazing – do you know who makes them?

  • Carolyn Murphy remains one of my all-time favorites! Beautiful.

  • The sandals are Jil Sander, I’m looking for them.

  • Love! I’m wondering about the pants (jeans?) in the third photo. Do you know who makes them?

    marnieApril 24th, 2018  5:59 PM

  • The pants are by Isabel Marant Ètoile

  • Oh, Preston! This story is wonderful. This is my dream summer wardrobe.

  • Jennifer’s comment is hilarious and spot on! For understated day dresses, Peserico. Cottons, no frills, perfect Italian tailoring, decent pricing. I purchased no fewer than 7 pieces from their SS19 trunk show: a tailored stone color pant, a khaki ‘dirndl’ skirt and jacket, two cotton tees, a pink cotton waisted shirt dress, and one sheath style dress with an overlay and a little embellishment for parties, weddings, etc. For Pre-Fall, they are offering slim, classic flat front pants in wool, subtle plaids. Perfect day time and casual evening alternative to jeans. The loafers Preston featured would be nice with them.

  • “Sorority rush in the 80’s”! Hilarious observation but I also despair of seeing anything in a dress other than little house on the prairie dirndl. I do love the resurgence of some 90’s trends (slip dresses and skirts) because it sends me down the rabbit hole of old Jil Sander and Helmut Lang shows.

  • I’m so happy to hear someone else is having a hard time finding simple cotton dresses for the summer. Seem so simple…
