Ombre Photoshoot

The Sun Doesn't Care Photo Shoot

For today's original Coutorture editorial, our lack of inspiration was our, er, inspiration. It's been a steady ninety degrees, sample sale season has been in full swing for months, the fall clothing has yet to deliver, and Spring fashion week is not yet upon us--time has been kind of dragging by. Top that off with a recession and being located in a city predominately void of air conditioning and you've landed yourself in crazy town. Lately we've been wearing our one-piece bathing suit to work (with shorts of course) and broken the cardinal rule of never wearing havaianas beyond the deli on our block. Yes, it has been that bad. We're sure most of you are right there with us.

After our poolside shoot we had not much left we felt really excited about, save for the editorials that will crop up closer to Fall (i.e. next month). Shortly thereafter, we saw this dress and a light bulb appeared over our heads. Yes, ombre would save us. Ombre has been a trend for a couple of seasons now and, in truth, it's not really going anywhere. Editorializing ombre might be a bit boring, if it weren't that it makes the perfect analogy to our current situation. What happens to your perfectly constructed style when the forces of nature (and/or the economy) are fighting against you? Well, it fades away...
