The ELLE Denmark 'City Flapper' editorial is romantically retro. Inspired by 1920s fashion, the looks are elegant and sophisticated. Nevertheless, they have been updated in a subtle way to better suit contemporary society and modern women. From bold prints that include cars and flowers to masculine blazers and platform heels, the photo shoot is rife with pieces that would already exist in women's wardrobes. Nevertheless, the editorial also features glamorous fringe, mesh fascinators and ladylike gloves, which many women don't wear anymore.
Lensed by young France- and Denmark-based photographer Oliver Stalmans for the magazine's March 2012 issue, the ELLE Denmark 'City Flapper' photo shoot stars model Ilva Heitmann. Styled by Anna Katsanis, the German beauty is clad in pieces from Dolce & Gabbana, Dries van Noten, Giorgio Armani, Chanel and more.
