These two little models in their gorgeous greys epitomise Kate Mack for me (I’ll call Kate Mack-Biscotti just Kate Mack for brevity)  – as I said in the previous post, the Laneya Grace shots are interesting (given the high profile she has now), but not particularly memorable from an artistic viewpoint. These, however, are a couple of those relatively rare occasions when the dreaded ubiquitous leggings (what Italians call “leggins”) have a sense and even help the effect. The feeling of movement and joy in the static twirl of the tutu and the girl’s hair in the last shot is almost palpable….

The brand has been run for 22 years in Oakland, California by Bernadette Reiss – originally just dresses, then expanding into swimwear. President Obama’s daughter Malia wore a Kate Mack for an Election night, and they’re worn by celebrities’ daughters from Suri Cruise to Harper Beckham: a really well-known and respected name. You’ll see in the galleries that the photographers are numerous (never named, sadly), and the promotional styles wildly different from dresses to swimwear, and from collection to collection.

The first set is girl + inflatables:

….and the swimsuits are ok if you like masses of flowers and dangly bits: basically for the younger age-group.

As you can see, the girls in the first set were ethnically Caucasian-blonde and Asian, and the second set Caucasian-blonde: and strangely these seem to be almost the only category of model they use: very few African-Americans, few Caucasian brunettes. Anyway, here’s my choice of the blondes:

And that’s it, except to repeat my frustration with the number of foot- and legless model shots – here’s more or less what I look like when I scream (wearing Kate Mack, of course):
