We were all mesmerised by US photographer Steve McCurry’s iconic image ‘Afghan Girl’ for National Geographic, so when we heard that he’d recently shot the 2016 Spring/Summer Valentino collection, we couldn’t wait to see the results. McCurry shot the African inspired collection in a Maasai village between Kenya and Tanzania, and as expected, the results are spectacular.

McCurry is renowned as a prestigious culture photographer, not a fashion photographer and as such he has majestically captured fashion and beauty and its interaction with the African culture.

Simply stunning! X

Here’s how to do white jeans in Winter


 

Put together a sleek and sophisticated look. Go for an all-white ensemble to make a refreshing statement. If you’re not quite ready for the full white-on-white, add soft neutrals or a touch of grey. Choose accessories in tan, nude or brown. Or be bold and opt for black and white! Whichever you choose, keep the colour palette simple.

Master the art of layering. Add wool over a crisp shirt. Throw on a slouchy over-sized cozy sweater.  Think wool, cashmere and cable-knits.  Upgrade your layers by adding a fur coat or a trench. If you are going to invest in one item, make it a tailored coat! Don’t forget the accessories.  Grab a great pair of boots, your favourite statement bag and voila! Simple!

The Classic White Shirt

How to style classic white shirt

The white shirt is the epitome of the classic wardrobe statement. It’s the perfect neutral base for a classic look. Everyone should invest in at least one and the better the quality, the better the investment. In my opinion it’s the ultimate essential for every season. The go to piece for easy dressing.

I love the versatility of the classic shirt and it has to be the easiest way to make a simple statement. The right find can provide instant polish. I’ve spent months tracking down the perfect white shirt. Personally, I don’t think you can ever have too many.

But what defines the ‘perfect’ white shirt?

For me, it’s all about the quality and the fit. Invest in the highest quality you can afford. It’ll be worth it. Keep the details simple if you are petite, this will emphasise a slimmer figure. Keep it loose if you have a fuller figure. Be aware of gaping button holes if you are busty. It needs to look effortless. Fabric is a personal choice but my preference is a classic cotton or timeless silk. I prefer the crisp clean lines of a classic man’s shirt, however go more sheer for a casual, relaxed look.

How to wear it? A classic white shirt goes with everything. Dress it up, play it down. Button it high or wear with a few buttons undone. Throw on trainers or a classic heel. Skirt or jeans? Who cares! Wear it under a classic blazer or team with cut off denims. It really is that versatile.
