Our photo director makes smiling heaps of poo look fantastically chic.

I first posted about the collaboration between Edie Parker and Del Toro back in March. Luxury e-tailer Moda Operandi had just opened its pre-order list to score the line, called M’Oticons, which featured velvet slippers and acrylic clutches emblazoned with emojis. The emails between my fashion-minded colleagues and me flew back and forth with relentless abandon:

“These are amazing.”

Those cute crop tops aren’t what you think.

See those crop tops up there? Cute, right? And how fantastic do they looked paired with a full midi-skirt? It’s a look that’s more put-together than shorts and a tank, and more unexpected than summer’s ubiquitous maxi dress. It’s my summer uniform — I throw on a light silk jacket and heels for work, and a pair of simple sandals for the weekend. But it’s not exactly what it seems …
