Incredible story.. I loved the time when he used to play so much with weight (layers) and headgear, the way he used the pleated pieces is also quite lovely. Not to be too nostalgic but I wish he could go back to that at some point, redefined or remastered but still explore it more.
thanks, a.t., for all your amazing contributions lately!
Thank you so much, Berlin. What a gorgeous little story!
As much as I love the play of silhouettes Olivier had been exploring in the last year, I've always preferred his experiments with layers and this is so right up my alley, I loved how the outfits have some pinning somewhere and how he manages to channel it into a more sensual territory instead of a matter of weight only.. obviously it helps that he's on the same page with Willy, who's quite into the female body profile these days and all the incredible angles you can get from it.. and that they've cast a model with experience at emitting pure and classic sensuality through body movements and attitude.. Miranda is just perfect for this phase, imo.. they tried it with Raquel and Natasha and even though I still enjoyed the results, I don't think they were able to fit like a puzzle the way Miranda does. I almost sound like a Miranda fan , never paid attention to her but she's certainly acquired a type of attribute only something like Victoria's Secret can give you and which the fashion industry is scarce of these days.. oh well, I should take that to SC, I guess.

i LOVE olivier's work in V. there's something about the shoots he does with Willy in V that never leave my mind, like the ones with Suvi, Sasha, Lara, Raquel, Natasha ... and now Miranda. Perfection. Want more!
Too much man love, not enough clothes!
but it's still lovely, I'm loving the struggle in writing down the credits :
wool-single-breasted suit jacket (retailored and pressed with lapels in reverse. worn as sports jacket with quarter-length sleeves)
wool pinstriped suit trousers (retailored as high-waisted slacks)
distressed cotton demin shirt (retailored and pressed with collar in reverse, worn as sports cardigan)
Just saw this! Made me laugh. Wish they wouldnt go into so much detail and fill the page with small text. i'm sure we could figure it out.
