WHO HASN'T LOST AN ACCESSORY OR ITEM OF CLOTHING, SOMEWHERE, AT LEAST ONCE? AFTER SERIOUS CONSIDERATION, GREY PROPOSES A STRATEGY PARACHUTERS HAVE LONG ADOPTED: WEAR TWO. IT LOOKS GOOD AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE THE WIND WILL TAKE YOU. FOR INSTANCE, TOWARD PLACE DU PALAIS DE MONACO WHERE STEFFY LANDED ON A SHOW, CATCHING THE PRESS OFF GUARD (¿QUIÉ ES STEFFY?), LIKE SUPERCOOL MISTRAL.

The successful rooftop landing, accomplished with military precision and attitude, is represented by this trench coat-inspired silk georgette dress by MAX MARA. The cotton drill “Camouflage Butterfly” jacket by VALENTINO serves as backup, hanging securely from the hips, while a cotton Fedora hat is layered over an extra visor cap, both by HENSCHEL HATS. The NICHOLAS KIRKWOOD FOR SUNO lace-up shoes are cushioned by grey TABIO socks.

Steffy reaches new heights wearing a silk bomber jacket adorned by fine lace, from the MARCHESA VOYAGE collection, while the “Spider Monkeys” designed by VALENTINO climb on the delicate net of this eccentric dress. A grey leather backpack spotted with paint by ILLESTEVA recalls one of the four elements of hip-hop. An idyllic image of Yellowstone National Park is reproduced on the hat by HENSCHEL HATS.

The silk gown with printed silk bustier is a homage to definitive black (or crows) by Raf Simon for DIOR. The fluid gown is paired with a floral embroidered bomber jacket by ASHISH. A pair of sunglasses try to contain Steffy’s wild hair, by KTZ BY LINDA FARROW. The look is streetwised by the NIKE “LunarElite Sky Hi” sneakers, worn with socks by TABIO.

A rebel at heart, Steffy wears a twill bomber jacket by KENZO over a printed silk crêpe de chine blouse by DIESEL BLACK GOLD. The look ends in drama with a lace flounced skirt by LUDOVICA AMATI.

A white orchid flourishes on the fluid silk tank-gown by FENDI. A reassuring speckled bomber jacket by PUBLIC SCHOOL is loosely knotted on the hips. As double daylight protection a waxed cowhide leather hat by HENSCHEL HATS is layered over the “Feather Light 2.0” visor by NIKE. Steffy is also equipped with an ILLESTEVA leather backpack, a crystal-adorned necklace and cuff by IOSSELLIANI, and the bronze with water pearls cuff by AESA. The NIKE “Air Max 1” sneakers, worn with socks by FALKE, encourage epic roof-to-roof jumps.

Steffy pulls a commander-in-the-field look wearing a floral chiffon gown by REBECCA TAYLOR sheltered by a cashmere double-faced sage green coat by HERMÈS. A military-inspired crystal pin drapes from the coat, and belongs to IOSSELLIANI’s “Full Metal Jewels” collection. The look is tempered by the leather brown calfskin sandals from MICHAEL KORS worn with veiled socks by FALKE. Beneath mirrored lenses by ILLESTEVA, Steffy preserves her glamorous authority.

A sense of freedom and adventure resumes this western jacket designed by ASHISH, adorned with tie-dye and leather fringes. The same spirit and dying effect is evoked in the long chiffon plissé skirt by ALBERTA FERRETTI.

A sheer black tulle dress by LUDOVICA AMATI flows with the breeze under a shiny floral crêpe jacket designed by CHANEL. The mesh hat by HENSCHEL HATS takes us to the Everglades, and is complemented by a printed foulard worn as headband, by CHANEL. The eclectic mix of NIKE’s “Studio Wrap Printed” yoga training shoes and ankle-strap leather sandals by CHANEL takes the game of double to the next level. A final Midas touch is added by the gold-plated brass necklace with clear quartzes by MANIAMANIA worn underneath the audacious see-through dress.
