Venice Mystic: Blue Life FW15

The beauty behind the classic Beatles song Lucy in the sky with diamonds is John Lennon’s tripped-out, psychedelic fantasy about a woman so magical she is completely out of reach. But what if she was real? An artist living in Venice, California, in a bungalow with a beach cruiser, a couple of crystals and a come hither gaze? Former Wildfox Creative Director Kim Gordon explores the concept in the lookbook for Planet Blue’s Blue Life fall collection.

Gordon’s photography and styling depicts scenes of a bewitching woman both at ease and enlightened. One minute she’s grazing on avocado toast, next minute she’s tapped in- reading tarot cards, transcending time and space. It’s a fresh take on a far out ideology, the notion that feeling groovy has as much to do with comfort as it does with clairvoyance. Retro elements like stretch velvet and tie dye are reinterpreted in modern silhouettes- sporty loungewear or a sweet romper. Sexy cutouts and sequins add elements of glam to this vie bohème, a perfectly juxtaposed pairing that is quintessentially west coast. If Blue Life sings the song of southern california lifestyle, then each piece in this collection hits just the right note.
