‘Bridgerton’ Star Phoebe Dynevor On Swapping Corsets For Self-Portrait’s AW21 Collection
“It’s funny, I think that it’s completely coincidental that there is this amazing thread that runs through what I wore on Bridgerton and Han Chong’s collections, which is interesting as he designed the collection before the show had come out,” Phoebe Dynevor tells British Vogue of Self-Portrait’s autumn/winter 2021 edit. The actor, who starred in the hit period drama, stars in the brand’s latest campaign – and it couldn’t feel more timely. “I think there are some similarities [with Bridgerton] in the softer colour palette, and the mood of some of his more delicate lace designs. But beyond that, I feel like Self-Portrait really has its eye on a much more modern and real way of dressing.”
Steered by Chong, Self-Portrait founder and creative director, the cult label’s latest 28-piece collection is punctuated with exaggerated sleeves, ribbed knits and playful twists with delicate lace on collars, skirts and more. The pièce de résistance? A white, structured-yet-breezy dress.
Dynevor, it turns out, can pull off any look with ease. “Working with Self-Portrait for this project really was effortless, and it happened so instinctively and quickly… Han is an incredible designer – this collection is a total testament to his work. I jumped at the chance to collaborate with him,” she says of her first fashion campaign.
