The breakthrough of color photography came about in the 1930s, but did not really reach consumers until the 1950s with the introduction of Kodachrome. With color photography comes the possibility of colorful fashion, which is vividly realized by photographer David Sims in the February 2018 cover story of Vogue Paris. Enter Grace Elizabeth and Oumie Jammeh, both of whom feature in the sprawling collections story wearing a number of colorful ensembles for spring. Having recently claimed starring role in the Chanel Spring 2018 advertising campaign, it could not be more fitting that Grace (pictured) turns up wearing what else, but Chanel. To be precise, Grace is pictured wearing a clear PVC cape and headband, one-piece jersey swimsuit, PVC and metal bag, and PVC, metal and rhinestone bracelets, all from Chanel. Elsewhere, Oumie makes a pair of cameo appearances wearing looks by Gucci and Chloé. In a world of black, white, and suffocating grey, this vibrant take on spring brings with it immense promise.
