May has finally arrived and with that comes the glorious season that is summer. Au revoir to coats and jeans and say a big hello to skirts, frocks and sexy little numbers! Of course fashion is still key, but summer is definitely the best time to show off that bod that you’ve been working on, vamp up your style a bit, and for Irish girls at least, strut your stuff without having to wear three layers of tights for once! One collection which entails all of the above is Jill Stuart’s chic, structured, yet sexy summer campaign.
In this campaign Stuart uses on-the-rise model Gracie van Gastel who, in my opinion, fits the attitude of the line perfectly. Edgy van Gastel teamed with hair and make-up by James Pecis and Aaeron de Mey, respectively, shot by Mario Testino and styled by Beth Fenton is absolute perfection. Gracie alludes with her enchanting eyes, drawing you straight to her and the sexy fashion range. With a clear juxtaposition seen between the hard, edgy clothes and the soft, eastern inspired backdrops, everything comes together beautifully in this shoot resulting in an amazing display of Stuart’s line.
With black and white being the only colours used in the line, leather having a huge influence and structured patterns also playing a vital role, this collection is definitely out of the norm for summer, but I absolutely love it! Have a look at van Gastel in Stuart’s flawless designs below:
