Anatomy of an upper class style
Perfect outerwear, from camel coats to the more vitaminic ones in pumpkin orange nuances. Up to the bottle green jackets that smell of Queen Elizabeth in the countryside. Then: fluid dresses, soft and never snug, midi or structured, made of warm notality (cream, bottle green, pale purple) and precious fabrics (cashmere or silk). Up to turtlenecks and important sweaters. And the accessories, rigorously very expensive and without logo: from golden hoop earrings, to maxi bags, to gold sandals, to outdoor boots.
The outfits chosen by costume designer Sam Perry point to a classic look, yet trendy, elegant and understated. Very radical chic. A clean style, never too structured, which is played on a few essential items, without ever showing off the logo. Pieces (only) apparently basic, but which show great style and personality. Without flaunting anything. This is the secret of his charm. Last style lesson? The chromatic choice. Sienna here teaches us that there is not only black in the female wardrobe. There is white and camel, as we have already seen, but also orange, petrol blue, gray, purple. And there is the masterful combination of the same. In an interminable game of form and substance.
