S/S Inspiration: Hardcore Elegance

I am so in love with this Tough Ballerina editorial from April’s Interview magazine, Freja Beha Erichsen by Craig McDean. The contrast of soft and strong, black and pink, leather and silk, Ann Demeulemeester and Roberto Cavalli… Amazing styling!

I’ve paired a hard motorcycle vest with a soft ruffle dress last year (click here to have a look), it is not that “tough” like the editorial, but IMHO more wearable for everyday life. ;-) I do like to try something more interesting this summer!

    These are truly inspirational! Who would have thought of styling Ann D with Cavalli, ruffles & leather together! I’d seen a few other shots from Freja’s post at tfs. I must admit they picked the right model, too ;-) Freja always succeeds to embody good balance of femininity and masculinity to the very precise point. Love her! Good post, Qy~
