Friday Editorial Love
Modern-day style icon Olivia Palermo graces the cover of Tatler Russia in a rainbow of darling colour…
The fashion starlet, model and actress, who has become known for her impeccably polished wardrobe, is one of the most watched style muses of today. Favouring classic pieces and gravitating towards sharp tailoring, Palermo’s style is timelessly chic and effortlessly glamorous.
This editorial for Tatler Russia evokes the allure of Palermo’s feminine style.
Wearing beautiful brights from Elie Saab, John Galliano, Marni, Miu Miu, Giorgio Armani and others, the imagery has a refined beauty and yet playful spirit. Shot in Madrid by Santiago Esteban, the editorial is a sweet mix of elegance and whimsy – perfect for envisioning an opulent Summer romance…
“Fashion is something that interests me on a daily basis – it started when I would see my mother and aunt get dressed up and go out at night in the city.”
– Olivia Palermo

Vivid coloured blossoms, bold prints and artistic patterns are truly enchanting – especially on trousers. This season both on and off the catwalks, printed trousers have become the go-to for effortlessly chic dressing.
Making an appearance during the Autumn / Winter 2011 shows (from Jean Paul Gaultier to Dries Van Noten); printed pants went on to hit a catwalk high note for Spring. From Isabel Marant to DVF, Paul & Joe and more; printed trousers struck a pose with panache.
Banish your thoughts of ghastly prints in oversized unflattering shapes – this trend is all about modern polished elegance. With a focus on clean lines and refined cuts, printed trousers in sharp silhouettes look nonchalantly cool yet surprising elegant. Tailored cigarette pants or capris (finishing just above or on the ankle) should be well-fitted for ‘glamorous,jet-setting style’ (a la Isabel Marant). While wide palazzo pants (as seen at Paul & Joe) or silk wide-leg harem styles (from Diane von Furstenberg) are equally alluring.
Wear with a crisp white shirt for fresh sophistication or highlight a tone from the print with a simple, relaxed tee. A loose silk blouse in a neutral shade will also look beautiful.
From effeminate watercolour splashes to intense tribal prints – luxe shapes in exquisite colour is a Spring focal point.
Will you go bold in printed trousers? xx
