fragile fairies

hiding in the cloud of a fausto sarli bolero.

some fairies in roccobarocco couture.

fausto sarli.

gattiononi couture.



roccobarocco couture.

chanel haute couture.
this chanel dress has been a favorite of mine.
that embroidered tree is exquisite. it's a wonder.
i'm sure it's made by lesage.

all images from the alta moda (couture) supplement of
vogue italia september 1997.
models audrey marnay plus an other girl whom i don't know.
photos by satoshi saikusa.
scanned by me.
some of the images are cropped.

i think a little disclaimer is also needed here:
i'm well aware that these girls are overly frail.
i just want to let you know that i couldn't be further
from advocating skinniness or starving your body.
the sole reason for my sharing these is
that i personally find them inspiring (visually and designwise).
please look at them as fairies.


  1. Such a beautiful editorial! Thank you for sharing.

  2. The dress is indeed stunning. THe model next to Audrey is Bridget Hall, she was popular in the nineties.

  3. C. Thank you!

    E. I'm glad you like it, too. :) Yes, the girl looks a little like Bridget but it's not her... she must be some Russian on Eastern-European girl. But thanks, anyway, really. :)


  4. Oh god, I must be getting old! :-))
