Josephine Skriver's latest editorial 'En Route Libre' is a flawless mixture of a traditional European lifestyle with high fashion. Shot by photographer Carlotta Manaigo, 'En Route Libre' depicts Skriver relaxing around a European city with a retro-style bicycle. The bike is not the only retro element of the shoot. Skriver's ensembles, styled by Belen Casadevall, all invoke periods of graceful elegance, particularly the 1950s and 60s.

One ensemble is particularly striking. It consists of a burgundy blouse, a floral-printed lace skirt and a dainty blue scarf. With Skriver wearing this outfit and leaning against her bicycle in front of a scenic river, 'En Route Libre' truly becomes a pathway to freedom. Skriver's relaxed posture channels a free spirit who is simply enjoying her time in a beautiful European city.

'En Route Libre' is more than an editorial for Stylist Magazine. As well as exhibiting clothing and demonstrating great photography skills, this editorial tells a memorable story. Stats for Chic Bike-Focused Editorials Trending: Older & Mild
