When you're actually attending a fashion show, the clothing that swishes by you on the runway goes so quickly that you rarely have a chance to actually appreciate the details. The cut, the color, the fabric, the way it flows on the model - none of that is lost. But, the hardware, the craftsmanship, and the quality of the materials is insanely hard to register.
That's why these images by Kira Bunst, capturing the Céline Winter catalogue are blowing my mind. As is that bag (stunning!).
The detail in a perfectly executed pleat.
The texture of organza peeking out from the buffalo plaid sweater.
That insane belt.
We're so used to consuming style through the lens of street looks and overdone editorials that sometimes we forget to stop and focus on the most simple of details - the art that is fashion. The part of fashion that isn't about who is wearing what, or which trend is happening now, but rather about the clothes themselves. The stitch. The fit. The brain that dreamed up this garment or accessory. The creator.
That's the side of fashion I like to embrace. I'm also considering embracing this one-earring thing that's happening right now. But in the meantime, I will be dreaming of that coat, that belt, and that bag.
