Am imagining these two Paris ensembles sculpted by Bernini. At left: a deux-pièces entirely in black organdy by Alwynn, on the right a dress from Paquin in ottoman, illustrating the theme of ”vent debout” for the skirt and ”vent en poupe” for the bodice. According to translating site Linguee, that means the skirt is heading into the wind, or upwind, and the bodice has the wind in its sails or is breezing ahead. How enchanting. Femina. Modes de printemps. Avril, 1950. #alwynn#paquin#hautecouture#1950dress#1950style#parisfashion#histoiredelamode#fashionhistory#annees50
The oversized shirt is one of the most controversial items in all men's fashion. And the oversized shirts can contribute to a number of great styles and is a piece that is incredibly versatile and stylish when worn correctly.
I think one of the hardest things to manage, is to "see" what the best "tool" for the job is at any given moment. For example, we arrived on location with powerful lighting to ensure that we could fight the sun and get amazing shots of our model. However, it takes discipline to look around and admit when there is often a better option. In this case it was JUST the sun. I looked over and saw this patch of sun on the bench and knew it would be perfect. The lighting here looks exactly like something I would have done with my lighting gear, yet did not need to use at all. Funny I hear people complain about many of the successful "Instagram Photographers" out there who are fashion bloggers, or models, influences etc because they use their phone as the camera and walk away with killer shots just like this one. Remember, its not the gear, the camera, or anything like that that "makes" you successful. It's practice, knowledge, planning and a global understanding of how and when lighting works in your favor.
