Youthful Anne Kruger for Volt Magazine
Call it childlike, call it sophisticated, or call it whatever you please. There’s no denying the bold fashion behind the dress up-inspired ensembles that were on display in the latest issue of Volt. Photographer Pablo Zerbini captured Anne Kruger’s youthful essence as she posed in rebellious outfits, designed to be reminiscent of childhood behavior. The editorial, entitled “Just a Kid,” was styled by Steven Westgarth and included the spring designs of Just Cavalli, J.W. Anderson, and Maison Martin Margiela. Hair stylists Yumi Nakada-Dingle and Tomihiro Kono created spunky, dip-dyed strands, which added to the playfulness of the entire spread.
It wasn’t hard to point out the must-have spring looks within the outfits, but the over-the-top selections of oversized bows, clashing colors, and bold, mixed patterns made the trend of children’s wear worth a second look. We were only shown the best of the best, starting with the school girl-esque piece that was created by pairing a patterned J.W. Anderson top with a pastel blue Felder Felder skirt. The accessories were simple, with a collar neck piece from Claudia Ligari and an arm full of eclectic bracelets from both the stylist and Felder Felder. The Claudia Ligari neck piece appeared playfully along the pages, accompanying looks that detailed playtime and dinnertime.
My favorite piece was a muted, pink ruffle skirt by Fam Irvoll, shown with a picture-printed button-up top by Peter Jensen. The drastically opposite styles were brought together with a big black bow that was tied around Kruger’s waist. Of course, we knew that these specific looks were compiled by a professional stylist, but the message was simple and universal; sometimes, you get the best results with less strategy and more play.
