I’ve been feeling rather uninspired by the latest editorials from magazines from all over the world, as the Vetements/Balenciaga/Gvasalia hype is still going strong and it gets boring and repetitive to see its ugly aesthetic (does that even make sense?) all over the place. Hence, the lack of me posting editorials lately. While I do love the jeans and a couple of Gvasalia’s creations, I don’t find the puffer coats quite the aesthetic piece neither for wearing everyday let alone for editorials. Neither do I find the go-go dancer platforms to be quite the inspiring object. These are trends I am sure a lot of people who jump into every ‘cool’ trend bandwagon will regret endorsing in a couple of years, because–let’s face it– neither puffer coats nor go-go dancer platforms will ever be stylish, if not the opposite. They will feel exactly how 80’s women felt after wearing drop crotch pants, supersized shoulder pads, and ankle warmers years after.
However, there’s always StyleBy to save the day and Columbine Smille, aka the creative mind behind most of the magazine’s editorials, might be one of the best fashion editors and stylists in the world at the moment. Everytime I look at her work, I am just like, ‘wow!’. If her work as fashion blogger with a super effortless and elegant personal style alone was not enough to confirm her as a huge talent, her work as a stylist and fashion editor with her eye for timeless pieces and expressive images has validated her as a brilliant figure in the fashion world.
Below you find her latest work with cozy knits and snuggly coats, which will make you wish you could fast-forward to winter. x
