While it’s legitimate to concur Vogue Paris’ editorial, ‘Le Noir – Partie 2’ resonates perfectly with fall; it’s also logical to covet this spread for injecting a modern edge into 17th century conservatism. Captured by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the duo’s lookbook is packed with a mesmerizing flair of sinister-chicness. Curated with an array of garments from Céline, Chanel, Gucci, Lanvin, Prada and Versace; Suvi Koponen exhibits entirely black, head-turning, pilgrim-inspired motifs in belted-waist coats, oversized pleated collars, noir chiffon, felt fedoras and a belted leather dress. Abound by lush greenery and foliage, the spanning countryside is illuminated with warm technicolor lighting — to kick-off Thanksgiving festivities with an air of excitement (and style), just like the pilgrims!
*Note: The english translation of ‘Le Noir – Partie 2’ is ‘The Black – Part 2.’
