From shooting 83 floors up at the newly renovated St. Regis to sailing away on a luxury sailboat on Lake Michigan, this editorial is a love letter to Chicago.
For the fashion, stylist Catherine Vreeland of Mira Couture was inspired by the city’s architecture. A mix of modern glass skyscrapers and gothic 1920s classics dominates Chicago’s skyline, and the gowns here reflect that modern-yet-worldly aesthetic. From custom in-house designs by Mira Couture to gowns by Kim Kassas and Marchesa, fashionable old-world touches played beautifully with modern silhouettes. Defined by movement and flow, each scene of this story reflects an artful juxtaposition and sky-high style.
