Vogue Paris: Couture

Vogue Paris: Couture
By Heather Dunhill

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed an editorial styled by Emmanuelle Alt. As a refresher, they haven’t always garnered my highest praise. But, here in the May issue of Vogue Paris she rocks a new Alt, releasing her hold on the 80s with the editorial titled "Couture."

Alt styles haute couture with the dynamic photographic talent of Inez and Vinoodh with model Freja Beha Erichsen. The clean shots pop with punk subculture, a nod to the opening of Punk: Chaos to Couture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this month. Alt proves to us that to be stylish you have to know fashion’s past because history repeats itself — punk is fresh again.

She hits all the hardcore notes for the modern punk poster girl who has taken a maroon, four-door sedan to the borough of Brooklyn where she’ll duck into the underground clubs, eschewing the mainstream and embracing the new noir. It was a sight from the opening image with the studded toque designed by Philip Treacy atop the hot white, cropped Armani Privé jacket to the divine Zuhair Murad gold and alabaster feather cape that shrouded a sequined pantsuit, hit with color at her tomato red pumps.

The strong-shouldered metallic foil frock by Iris Van Herpen emphasizes the rarefied bird on the streets of Willamsburg that can make her way onto any scene there is to be seen. Freja Beha Erichsen in the gilt mini dress by Atelier Versace can open all doors herself, no doubt. But, take a tip from Alt when you get to the Maison Martin Margiela ligne Artisanal shot — pairing silver with a slick scarlet — without question, it will be found on the trend-current street stylers, so get to it before they do...
