dree hemingway — ballerina-turned-model-of-the-moment, my current style inspiration, and the beautiful great-granddaughter of legendary writer ernest hemingway. like her great-grandfather’s writing, dree’s style is characterized by economy and understatement. the latter, in spite of what one may think initially, has a power far beyond the present. it stays with you, and resurfaces at unexpected moments, long after it has made its first impression.
the outfit i’m wearing today was inspired by the denim and leather combination she wears in the second photo, a look i briefly toyed with after the givenchy ss09 rtw collection came out. denim shirt, black leather jacket, black tights, and studded boots. i think this is going to rapidly grow into a uniform of sort.
now i need her giles deacon ss2010 sunglasses and those sky-high wedges and i’ll be set for the year.
