Amy Taylor Makes High Fashion Effortless for Elle Bulgaria
Fashion is what you make it. Whether you want to wear a pair of red-bottomed Louboutins around the house on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or paint the town wearing nothing but a few hand-me-downs, style is defined by who wears it when. Anyone else’s opinion is just noise. Elle Bulgaria proved this with their cover editorial featuring Tali Lennox who poses effortlessly in sets designed by Amy Taylor.
In the shoot, photographed by Enrique Vega, Lennox is decked out in high fashion looks on a refreshingly comfortable set by Amy Taylor. Amy has blended together textured walls with distressed, antiqued furniture pieces to create a graceful and pleasurable aesthetic tension. Looks are literally framed by massive picture frames that hang on the wall or create the perfect three-dimensional interactive piece for Lennox to step through. A highlight is the antique wooden Merry-Go-Round horse that Lennox treats like a throne while wearing Missoni and Versace.
The gap that Amy bridges between high-level style and at home environment brings a whole new life to fashion and changes the viewer’s potential perception. By seeing brands like Chanel and Fendi in a setting like Amy’s it makes it easier for us to imagine taking them home. It shows us that we, too, can be like Lennox, living in Givenchy and doing it for no one else than ourselves.
