Photographed by Phillip James in Aswan, Egypt at The Sofitel Legend Old Cataract Hotel, in partnership with Sofitel Luxury Hotels.
While Egypt immediately evokes monumental megalithic architectural achievements and the mystery of ancient civilizations, there’s also a vibrantly modern and cosmopolitan side to this fascinating country that’s often overshadowed by its magnificent past. Refreshingly, The Sofitel Legend Old Cataract Hotel takes a decidedly contemporary stance with French interior architect Sybille de Margerie’s neo aristo-chic style. With bold tropical greens and imposing design (the exaggerated proportions are reminiscent of Egypt’s celebrated Pharaonic grandeur), it seamlessly merges the past and the present and delivers a sophisticated décor that’s an ode to timeless elegance.
Wearing: Cameo flounce bustier top in black (similar in floral print here and love it in graphic black and white too), T by Alexander Wang Skort and gladiator open-toe booties by L.A.M.B.
