…..still makes me grumble when fashion houses don’t acknowledge their photographers and/or stylists: this is lovely, a perfect capture that makes you look – first at the window and the light, but then at the details, including the all-important outfit the model’s wearing – and imbues the clothing with the classic, elegant atmosphere that the setting represents. If you want your daughter to dress with a sense of style that doesn’t date, then you’d be tempted to buy this. Try getting that effect with the same model wearing the same outfit standing like a mannequin in a neutral catalogue shot.
Bonnet à Pompon, despite the name, is a Spanish brand, and being Spanish they don’t disappoint with their promotional material:
….more decorative than imaginative, but still giving the outfits an attractive context in which you can picture your little dumpling wearing them (and enjoying them). As with most Spanish girls’ fashion, there’s a visible attempt to balance the romantic/frilly/pleated/layered/floaty preferences of the girl customer with the more practical, wearability concerns of the parents.
