AT GREY WE USE THE WORD "COOL" A LOT BECAUSE WE STILL BELIEVE IT IS POSSIBLE, DESPITE THE MALEVOLENT EFFORTS OF CONFORMISM, TO CREATE A NEW SOMETHING ON THE EDGE OF CIVILITAZION WHILE PRESERVING A COHERENCE WORTHY OF A NATIVE IN THE RAINFOREST. IT'S ALSO ABOUT NADINE LEOPOLD LOOKING DIVINE WITH CLOTHES, AGAINST THE EMPTINESS OF A BLACK BACKDROP, ALSO KNOWN AS THE UNIVERSE.
The utility of a blue zipped jacket from the ALLEGRI men’s collection anchors the whimsy of an olive-green tulle and lamé dress by N°21, drawn into a mohair and alpaca wool skirt topped with plumage, designed by MARNI. The floral western shirt worn underneath is by LEVI’S.
The look for a deli run between the coolest parties. A cropped sweatshirt illustrated by Rick Griffin for LEVI’S shows the laid-back side of an evening tulle gown layered with an embroidered black net, by TADASHI SHOJI. The black frame with grey lense by KTZ BY LINDA FARROW creates a graphic novel finale.
The play of light lace and mellow colors in the gown by MARCHESA makes a mesmerizing backdrop for a black keffieh doubled with a floral silk vintage foulard, hand-crafted by 5 MIN. A refined shade comes from the black felt hat by COACH.
The hand-printed trench coat in sheepskin has a childlike rapport with the playful brushstrokes of the floral silk dress, both by BURBERRY PRORSUM. The striped crew-neck sweater worn underneath is by WOOLRICH JOHN RICH & BROS. The net socks by WOLFORD are worn with “Air Force 1 Downtown Hi” sneakers by NIKE.
The silhouette of a modern-day matrioska is defined by the cobalt blue keffieh doubled with a liberty-motif vintage foulard, designed by 5 MIN. A radiant VALENTINO gown in midnight-blue tulle is embellished with stars, hearts, moons and birds, and finely embroidered with multicolored metallic wire.
A halo of blood lilies by DRIES VAN NOTEN and a braided headband in brown felt by HEATHER HUEY frame Nadine’s face, while the distressed trucker jacket by LEVI’S shields a delicate floral print blouse by DRIES VAN NOTEN.
A sparkling peach dress in silk by N°21 disarms the tough denim trucker vest by LEVI’S, designed in collaboration with illustrator Rick Griffin. The braided head piece in brown felt by HEATHER HUEY creates a poised profile.
A slate-grey vest equipped with red details by MIU MIU revels in the forest print of a silk dress by N°21. The bi-toned bliss pants adorned with lace inserts by VIMMIA are offset by an assured gravity in KENZO’s monumentally stacked shoes.
