This Steven Khalil gown is incredible. I was lucky enough to wear it to our Mount Franklin Colab launch – and while the model wears it much better than I, the point is an embellished-black-just-below-the-knee frock is versatile enough to wear for many occasions – it's just about the accessories.
In the case of this shoot, it was all about couture earrings. I made these show stoppers for a shoot we did in India last year, but loved that stylist Conor Graham selected these for this shoot with Ali Mitton, in Central Park NYC.
We wanted to shoot something a little goth-luxe, as an inspiration board for midnight soirees, maybe an engagement or anniversary party. Add a plum shade lip & a simple strappy black heel, and you’ll own the night.
The tone of midnight. – SWx
