editorial love: el dorado.......
I imagine she's a European heiress on an adventure, running far from a life that has been planned for her from the moment she entered the world. An arranged marriage, a life inside castles and attending glittering parties, surrounded by people she doesn't love and people that don't love her. Her adventure finds her in a small town in Peru sometime in the early part of the twentieth century. Faced with a world so outside her normal reality she must survive or perish. Of course she does all this in some serious threads, Dries, Oscar, Givenchy, Prada and Chanel to name but a few.
No doubt those treads are rad but, predictably so, I'm much more enamoured with the traditional Peruvian Quechua hats. I'm quite sure I could conquer anything with one of those perched on my skull.
