Needless to say, I’m in awe of her knit (cable cable cable), ruching (see below: enough said), prints (almost a McQueen vibe), and razor-sharp cuts that set her more than a little apart from 500 naked mannequins.

This amazing lookbook was shot by the very talented Charles-Elie Lathion. Lust away, friends.
Check out more of Aleksandra’s work HERE.
And happy Friday! I’m exhausted – I promise the unveiling of what’s in the box will occur soon.
