This midnight blue checked cashmere coat is embroidered with dark beads and reveals a black silk and lace slip-dress. Both belong to the LOUIS VUITTON collection.

AS WE CONTINUE FURTHER INTO P.K.D.'S PREDICTED OPAQUE AND DISCONNECTED REALITY, THE PRESUME LEGITIMACY OF SOURCE RELIES MORE ON CODE THAN CODA. IF ONE ASSUMES ANOTHER'S IDENTITY, ARE THEY BORROWING, USURPING, OR ENHANCING?

The black trench-coat wool dress by VANESSA MORIN is accessorized with an ardesia wool hat, adorned by a bi-toned ribbon, and belongs to the YOHJI YAMAMOTO men's collection. The round acetate sunglasses by KADOR are featured in a mustard shade. The Fond de Teint Correcteur Invisible foundation by EISENBERG PARIS is an invaluable ally to complement the daily skincare, thanks to its light and hydrating formula. The “deep love” blackened brown shade of Matte Lipstick by MAC warms the lips.

IN OUR POST- REALITY, WHERE, UPON THE ROLF -PLAYING CURVE, LIES THE BEWITCHING, ADROIT AND ENDURING ACTRESS IN RELATION TO THE DIGITAL FRAUDSTER PURPORTING TO BE ANOTHER HUMAN? WE SHALL APPLAUD THE LEGITIMATE AND EXPOSE THE REPLICANT. WE OUGHT TO: THE LEGITIMATE ARE BEING OVERRUN. IT'S NOT BEAUTY BUT CERTIFIED HUMANITY THAT IS MAGNETISM'S ENGINE.

A formal off-white shirt is accompanied by the timeless aviator jacket, here proposed in a warm caramel shade and complicated by merino wool details and contrasting fur collar. Both come from the HERMÈS collection. Tropical flowers and birds lay on the midnight blue satin gown by ALICE + OLIVIA. The Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick, here featured in the intense “la favorite” shade, gives a luminous matte color to the lips, and is complimented by the apricot “espiègle” tone of Joues Contraste powder blush. Both by CHANEL MAKEUP.

A bi-toned fox fur stole dramatizes the severe black dress worn underneath, both by MARNI. A black shetland wool cardigan by PRADA completes the look. The “roman rouge” shade of the Fard à Lévres lipstick is combined with the exclusive nuances of Fard à Paupières 2 eyeshadow palette. All by PARFUMS SERGE LUTENS.
