The sentiment is not new, but nevertheless it can be said again that life is but a series of choices. What to wear, when to wear it, and, yes, how to wear it can beguile even the most consequential aesthete. The September 2016 issue of Vogue Nederland provides an instructive approach to this quandary in a collections story featuring Julie Hoomans photographed by Marc de Groot. Titled “La Collectionneuse,” this Jos van Heel-styled story embraces multiplicity, layers and layers of it in fact, to create looks as distinctive as Julie herself. Singular though the layer might be, Julie (pictured) wears a cropped biker jacket by Louis Vuitton and sports an animated coif by hair and makeup artist Irena Ruben. Now that is living.
