i can't stop staring at these images by photoblogger and gadabout extraordinaire tommy ton for vogue nipon. the flowy, chiffon-y dress at left looks like the beginning of a dream sequence on a 60s sitcom: the screen goes all wavy and soft as we hear the angelic flourish of harps and the dramatic echo, echo, echo of the last word spoken.
alongside this daydream of a dress, is the one-two punch of polka dots and cat's-eyes. perfecly styled ballerina buns, leopard accents and sharply pointed stilettos complete the betty-draper-dans-la-rue-de-sainte-honore look. ooh-la-la.
clearly staged, tommy still manages to bring his signature street-smarts to the images. it's as if these lovelies might waltz off the set any moment and head straight to petit dejeuner on the rive gauche.
today, i came across more proof that tommy's vision is worth tons in gold. sak's is using his images in a clever online fashion diary. this page showcases an adorable slouchy beret knit up in a super-chic leopard motif. last year, i became enamored of the motif in a sweater spotted on girl crush alexa chung. this beret makes all that intarsia seem positively do-able, n'est-ce pas?
