subtle to a hero

Readers of Tommy Ton’s awe-inspiring style blog Jak & Jil will have no doubt seen these images of Tara Vasev already, but I couldn’t resist adding them to my own little corner of the digital world. Pouring over the photographs of Vasev, Alexander Wang’s Merchandising Assistant, my heart broke a little in the best of ways.

This is what stops my breath when it comes to fashion. Found objects worn like tribal armour, leathers celebrated for the stories they could tell, clothing that aches as if borrowed from a lost love, and a subtle loyalty to a favourite hero. Working for a brand like Alexander Wang is surely a dream for so many of us but these images hint at a girl who, despite an obvious affinity to the designer who pays her bills, has a firm grip on her own personal style.
