Variations on Chic By Mario Sorrenti

fashion, Photography

Fashion is a never ending revolving cycle, it goes forward, backwards and makes full circles and fundamentally it is always varied! Thank goodness as it would get very boring if everything suited everyone. You take from fashion what you like and what inspires you and if it takes you on a journey, good, its doing its job. One of the most beautiful aspects of fashion is photography and the art of translating garments and creating stories. Here are a few images from Vogue Italia by Mario Sorrenti.

Black and white, lace and lines are all classics to be played with.

There is nothing quite like a groomed hair and make-up to create the look. It takes you back to dress ups when you were a kid and a transformation would transpire and you could be anywhere, anybody in any life but yours!

August’s top Chicfinds starts with Classic’s

fashion, Photography

In the Cambridge dictionary the definition of Classic is ‘having a high quality or standard against which other things are judged’. How do things that are classic make us feel? Timeless, familiarity, sense of quality and elegance. What is is about the blue and white stripe that keeps going and going? It’s classic! Classic is also beautiful, traditional and it’s something that’s so right it can never go wrong. Chicfinds reminds you of the classic so that you know in this world of so much choice what is trend and going and what is classic and staying. . Our first inspiration for what is classic is the black & white photography of one of my favorite photographers, Peter Lindberg. His photography is so classic you wouldn’t know when a shot was taken despite being in the pages of Vogue Italia month after month. The trends translate but with a timeless quality. His frames are so touching and intimate and his style is natural yet eyes are often set in black coal. Black & White are undeniably classic and chic in any shape or form. Lingbergh’s photography is cinemagraphic and theatrical yet he captures a purity and innocence in his portraiture.This is such a famous shot I could hardly not include it and it is such an inspiration to our theme; classic as it shows the beauty of the white shirt. You can’t compete with a beautiful white cotton shirt on either a man or a woman. For a superior level shirt visit one of the Harrolds Stores   you can’t go past the selection by Tom Ford. For the ladies visit Riada in Woollahra, Sydney where there is a beautiful selection of brands including HIGH, Jil Sander Navy and Marithe Francois Girbaud.
