Editorial: Summer Blues with Lili Sumner

Model Lili Sumner

My enthusiasm for pastel colors and Vichy check has been slumbering inside of me for a long time. Right at the beginning of the season, Joseph Altuzarra sent the probably most beautiful summer dresses and skirts in light blue and rose-colored kitchen check down the runway. How fittingly that Miu Miu also played with preppy 50s coats and rose-checkered skirts for their last show of the season. Contrary to the sweet lady styling Miuccia’s models had very thin black painted Latina eyebrows. I was blown away and the idea of “Daddy’s Girl gone Badass” was born. Et voila, Lili Sumner embodies this look like no other! Together we went to the most surreal location I have ever done a shooting at –Hollywood Beach in Miami. Yes, Laurence Ellis was able to borrow the cat on the leash from its owner for three minutes and after that, they happily continued going walkies.
