Photos of me again!!! (Just let me know when you get tired of it.)

The beautiful Yasmin Sewell has just launched a collection with Barneys.

She had told me about it in ultra secret mode back when she was working on it and of course, I immediately tweeted her secret to the world – uh, just kidding, but it was pretty difficult for me not to, given how I excited I was for the collection to come out.

You know, I’ve always loved her style – she’s been working in retail for years, she’s got a great eye and a sense for quality – so I knew it would be an exciting collection.

Exciting, but maybe not for me, I thought. Because, as you can see in the photos, Yasmin and I do not have the same body type. I mean, we’re pretty much opposites. And I was convinced that most of the things that make up her style wouldn’t be things I could ever wear.

(Oh, but now she’s pregnant, so our differences have balanced out a bit, huhuhuhu)

I told her that I would never in my life wear a crop top (there are two in her collection) and she promised me that she was going to prove me wrong.

So she came by the Studio in between shows and had me try on her collection.

See, she even made me wear a crop top.

“This was all about proportion, I wanted the skirt to sit high enough on the waist so it really elongated the leg, and the top was designed to pretty much sit perfectly at the high waistband. Again, I was thinking proportion and a slim fit skirt and oversized wide top I think is a great balance. I don’t believe in total body con, it’s gotta be balanced out.” – Yasmin

Ok, let’s not exaggerate. We all have our own body type. We definitely burst out laughing when she tried to have me put on the mini crop top with a tee-shirt underneath – one of her signature outfits, which I promise on the head of Anna Dello Russo, will never become mine.

But the rest of the collection is just as perfect as I imagined. The coats with subtle stripes, the super well-cut pants – everything is really lovely, very Yasmin, but also perfect for everyone.

“Seeing this [coat] on Garance made me very proud, she wears it exactly as I imagined it when I designed it. A lot of the collection was about classic items but I pushed a little with fabric and colour. This coat will hang off a lot of women, of any age or shape, but in aqua alpaca stripe it goes somewhere else. I think its still super effortless to wear.” – Yasmin

I love it when my friends do great work like that. I hope you’ll like it just as much as I do.

And tomorrow, a video of me riding a horse naked on the beach!!! IN SLO MO!!!
No, just joking.

Kisses!
