Inspired by an ad for a handbag where the model had impossibly perfect hair, an impossibly perfect a-line skirt, and fabulous shoes. Sometimes that’s all it takes. I liked the length of the sleeves and the turtleneck - not quite the length you’d expect in either. Mostly, I wanted to capture the effortlessness of the scene’s impossible perfection - a tall order, I’ll grant you.
