Andrew Bird's Untamed Melodies

Inspired by Alt

Emmanuelle Alt turned 46 yesterday! In honour, I thought some Alt-esque inspiration would be fitting (pun intended!). 

The following images are not all “pure Alt” - the classic skinny jeans, mid-heel pointy-toe pumps, and loose fitting silk blouse - rather, these sartorial combinations are inspired by the masculino-sexy Alt silhouette. In each there is something of an unmistakeable Alt attitude.

Note: Jane Aldridge features heavily in the following sequence of photos; she is arguably the best incarnation of the Alt from the crop of young bloggers.
