The 'Pure Expression' editorial in Vogue China's May issue updates the classic toga look by giving it some more structure.
The distinctive, drapey garment hailing from ancient Rome has been referenced in many a fashion collection. This time around, fashion editor Tiina Laakkonen opted for pristine white robe-inspired styles that had less drape, and more precision in their cuts and tailoring. The outfits were accessorized with lace-up gladiator shoes and serpentine gold jewelry. Tutour's look was completed with a sleek ponytail (courtesy of Rita Marmor) and a smokey eye (done by makeup artist Francelle). Overall, this look serves to remind us that, despite its cyclical nature, fashion will always renew itself in unexpected ways.
The 'Pure Expression' editorial was lensed by photographer Sharif Hamza for the Vogue China May issue.
