Grandma’s Got Taste

My grandmother was a coquette dresser with a most amazing dress sense. Even if she was just hanging about in the house, she would be all dressed and made up wearing lipstick. Hers was a generation where social graces, grooming and fashion were a part of their education (remember Swiss finishing schools?). Like what we can still glimpse in old black & white movies, theirs are a class act missing in our age. On that note, my mum inherited from her this black maxi cape – not for very long though as I have now made it mine. The material and finishing are simply top notch. I toned down its stately elegance for an everyday look by wearing a Zara floral shirt, H&M black skinny jeans, Veja x Sud Express white tennis, 3.1 Phillip Lim satchel and Ray-Ban round shape sunglasses. For this shoot, Inès and I found this wall bathed in a soothing reflection of sunlight. Didn’t they turn out great!
