"It is my intent to showcase that which I consider wearable art.
Clothing that is whimsical, dramatic, avant-garde and on the
cutting edge of design - as seen through my eyes.
Brilliance and madness are interchangeable.
This is my style inspiration. I invite you into my world."

EDITA VILKEVICIUTE by Sølve Sundsbø

Dramatic pieces from past collections are showcased in Vogue China.
Styled by Nicoletta Santoro.


Yohji Yamamoto's voluminous cape which was featured in Yohji's retrospective
at the Albert & Victoria Museum in London.
The back view... a billowing train trailing like a puddle of thick black ink.
This exquisite piece is punctuated by a dramatic hat of layer upon layer of tulle.



Givenchy's gown of jewels. Feather flames licking at her heels

I lust for these beaded gloves.


Yves Saint Laurent - such amazing attention to detail. The high throated collar, red buttoned front which gives way to petals of sheer black panels of skirting

Like a Phoenix... Brilliant!


And another ... in white, as though she has dressed herself in a cloud.


Lanvin, applique on emerald green. The necklace steals the show. I personally, adore the headwrap. Great styling!


Such an incredible collection of artistry in design... my heart be still!
