Scale is important. Whether it concerns the neighborly gifting of wooden horses in antiquity or scientific investigation into colony collapse disorder in global bee populations, the significance of scale cannot be overstated. Scale too is important in fashion, see also Demna Gsvalia at Balenciaga. Vogue México celebrates one facet of scale, oversize looks for autumn, in its November 2017 issue in a story featuring Alanna Arrington photographed by David Bellemère. All enveloping knitted tops figure throughout the editorial and are worn with balletic grace by Alanna. Consider the jacket (pictured) by Miu Miu. Alanna effortless transforms outerwear into a decidedly sexy affair. Then again, that’s just what Alanna does, no matter the scale, whatever the proportion.

Look out for Alanna in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at the end of the month on Tuesday, 28 November.
