The April 2012 edition of Elle UK is set to feature the vividly patterned ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’ spread. Photographed by Trouble Management’s David Vasiljevic, the project features geometric and royal-themed prints that reoccur throughout the series.
The ensembles sported by model Alexandra Tomlinson in the Cat on a Hot Tin Roof collection are all highly animated. Tropical leaf designs and bean-shaped motifs pattern one-piece suits and billowing silk-lined pants. Shot amid a luxe hotel, the spread is reminiscent of a 1940s aristocratic vacation, especially given its display of a green-tinged vintage car. With bold, chunky heels and highly exaggerated side swept hair, Tomlinson has demonstrated that it is possible to combine eclectic patterns within one outfit.
