I came across these Nadav Kander pictures on Krisatomic and was a little bowled over. The colours, and washed out, humid atmosphere that you only seem to get in East Asia. Everything softly muted and slightly dulled.
It made me want to pick out a few clothes following this muted palette, with simple neutral pieces like the pale grey Richard Nicoll dress working with bright accents like the Balenciaga boots. Christopher Kane’s dress has a pleasing combo of nude mesh, pale blue and crunchy, textural, white embroidery. The pleated chiffon frock in the middle is, surprisingly from Miss Selfridge, I’m considering buying it and wearing it with sandy desert boots. Also tugging at the heartstrings, the Zimmerman top which is a luxe-ified version of those shexay Punkyfish tops everyone used to wear about ten years ago.
