Sigrid Agren | Numéro Tokyo April 2011 №45 by Damien Neva

…and look forward to seeing more of Sigrid Agren, but will save that for another post.

OK, that other post is this post. Ford’s Sigrid Agren follows her Numéro Mars 2011 №121 story with a chaser in the form of this Numéro Tokyo April 2011 №45 cover story by photographer Alex Cayley. Numéro Tokyo might not be as expansive as its more famous French forebear, but that doesn’t preclude it from making its own meaningful contribution to the fashion publishing world. Moreover, so long as editor in chief Ako Tanaka‘s monthly is doling out covers, consider us choir. Titled “Faith in Spring” the Joanne Blades-styled story opens with Sigrid wearing a flowing white ensemble by Maison Martin Margiela that includes those wonderful, deep-scooped heels that were first shown in Paris last October. Like early spring, the story doesn’t so much bloom as it ever so subtly buds. On page 153, Sigrid wears an exquisite degradé jacket by Dries Van Noten that is cinched at the waist with a leather belt. The understated color shift from gray to pale sand epitomizes the faith bit at the center of the story’s title that suggests spring indeed will come good. With the passage of time, spring inevitably matures, but that is not to say it doesn’t also benefit from smart styling and no small amount of Sigrid Agren.

It’s never bad when something feels a little bit Annie Hall.
