Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever. ~ Horace Mann
Gold seems so permanent, but really it’s ephemeral. Think about it—the golden sunlight of a fall day, the golden years of someone’s life, the golden promise of a new love—all over in a second it seems. Ava Lu captures the idea of a golden moment with a dress from the new fall Paper Couture collection, with gold that shimmers. this dress is particularly beautiful with its combination of great system piece use and sculpties.
The collar, loosely inspired by African silhouettes (as is most of the collection it seems), tops a “standard” asymmetrical, just-above-the knee dress. But the fabric of the dress is fantastic—gold underlaid with a distorted liquid metal vaguely animal print. It’s accented by a large gold peapod and flouncy waist tie. Dark plum tights shot through with gold threads accents the dress.
Hart Larsson’s skins are the only choice for such an elegant dress. With their hand-drawn character (Hart paints in his spare time in RL), Hart creates women whose faces seem less airbrushed and more realistically beautiful, although such beauty is rare. I wonder sometimes if this is Hart’s ideal woman, the one he hopes to meet some day.
“You have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by. Yes, but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.” ~ James Matthew Barrie
