Identical Twins

2848101406I’m loving these images of twins Amanda and Emilia Musacchia wearing matching garments from Samantha Pleet’s SS ’15 collection. Is there anything more striking than twins in matching outfits? I’ve always had a fascination with identical twins, especially when they are clothed the same. Now, you might think how often does that happen? But I used to see these two women, identical twins, wearing the exact same outfit, every single day. It got me wondering about them, and their lives and what it feels like to have someone who is so genetically similar to you.

All that aside, I love these images for how simple they are and how they feel like film stills, which is always my favourite photography – it does not seem over produced, but rather, casual and honest, capturing moments in time and life as it happens.

tumblr_nc0vhq5Typ1rn6caco9_500I was going to share an entirely (very) different collection today, but then I happened to browse Samantha Pleet’s new website and saw these images that I had seen behind-the-scenes of on instagram several months ago. Needless to say I got excited and decided to share it instead of what I had planned for today. But that is no surprise here. I am a long time fan of Samantha, everything she does, and the people she surrounds herself with. I liken her and the work/garments she produces to something of a enchanted-goddess-superhuman-angel. As you can see, when I like things, I tend to gush over them, like a lot, to an excessive point. But in all seriousness, her work and garments feel very otherworldly to me, and that’s probably why I like it so much, and will continue to enjoy them for years to come, I hope.
