Lace, a piece of fabric that has the ability to both cloth and reveal. I have always held a certain fascination for the threaded textile. There’s just something about lace that makes you feel feminine, sexy.
But styled carelessly, it can make you look aged, or indecent; both ends at which you would not want to be.
I shot this series with Nicole featuring a garment with a lace subtlety that has little chance of going wrong. Unless of course, you were to wear the top backwards.
That would just look plain awkward.
I’m spending this weekend watching the new BBC mini series War & Piece, a costume drama that happens to feature heaps of lace. Not that anyone should watch it for that though, Paul Dano and Lily James are the stars of the show. And this guy James Norton – where the hell did he come from and how have I not seen him before?
Anyway, go dress yourselves in lace now. Just don’t go granny or raunchy (or both (yikes!)).
