Model/blogger Alexandra Spencer has built an online empire around her ridiculously good genes and love for finely tailored separates. She’s the perfect muse, then, for rising cool kid Michael Lo Sordo, who let her loose amongst the collection he showed to press during New York Fashion Week in February.
Lo Sordo is among a bubbling talent pool of Australian designers making waves overseas. Ellery and Christopher Esber both showed at NYFW last year, and New York is providing a good market for Lo Sordo’s prodigious tailoring skills and aversion of bright colours. The most recent collection is an investigation of light and dark inspired by a woman, and infused with a dark and stormy marble print.
Russh magazine made the New York via Sydney dream team recreate the magic, and photographed Spencer doing what she does best. The resulting images make a good case for wearing well-cut suits at every waking hour of the day, even if you’re just lounging barefoot in some else’s hotel room.
