Noir

11 years ago by

I want to talk to you about black in summer. When the temp gets up there and you can show a little skin, I think wearing some black is super pretty.

For this one, it had to be Kristin, she has such a great style, 100% black, with her charcoal eyes and her long vail of hair, all the way down to her Demeulemeester boots that, pfffffffff, I’ve been looking for in pair in natural leather in a size 8 1/2 for a month!

The only thing is that in the midst of this sweltering afternoon, we heard a large crackle, and the heavens opened above us (you like my sense of drama?)(that is to say, it was raining). Pouring rain kept coming down, warm drops with the wind turning around itself, and so my pictures sort of lost that sweltering sun + black effect that I was looking for. It was more of a gust + black effect, totally a new meteorological-fashion concept, you’ll agree.

In the end, I liked it just fine.

Bonne journée!
