Susanna-Cole said...

Sending models down the runway holding coffee cups, was a genius idea, completely captures that celebrity-grabbing-coffee-street-style sort of essence that is so popular. Can't say I'm actually a fan of coffee though (or celebrities, for that matter)! :P But I love the clothing in this post!

Hope you are doing well! <3

xoxo,
S-C

we wear things said...

haha hmmm... tea with milk for me!!

Chessa! said...

these are beautiful and I happen to be drinking a latte at this very moment!! can that model's legs be any longer? I wish I had just another 2 to 3 inches...is that too much to ask for? lol
fabulous as always, darling.

rossovelvet said...

I had to ask you if you've seen the Nespresso editorial in latest VOGUE ITALIA ? ( Which is actually a SHAME because we drink REAL coffee, we drink real ristretto, black, microscopic, done WITHOUT a machine. But anyway. Big divagation xD )...

That shoot is actually kind of awesome !

Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. I couldn't NEVER survive without it ( even if I'm only seventeen ! ^^ )
