Ford’s Karmen Pedaru features in the August 2010 issue of British Vogue photographed by Daniel Jackson with fashion editing by Kate Phelan. With an emphasis on “wearable chic” Karmen appears in sensible numbers such as the sleeveless knit sweater and neoprene skirt both Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci (“Scuba-Ski”) and a cashmere coat with detachable waistcoat and slim wool trousers with flared legs both Gucci (“Creme Caramel”). Sensible, as is everything in fashion, is relative. That Gucci cashmere waistcoat alone retails for £9,110 (that’s pounds sterling, not dollars). “The fashion moment may not be dead,” comments fashion editor of The Times Lisa Armstrong in the article that accompanies the editorial, “but it’s having a lie down while the pursuit of longevity takes over.” So much in fashion is a swing of the pendulum and this moment of fashion austerity will most certainly be followed by a return to ostentatiousness in seasons to come. Whichever period fashion finds itself, however Karmen will be there to realize it.
