This week’s Fashion Inspiration features Lithuanian model Edita Vilkevičiūtė in an editorial by Quentin de Briey for the Vogue Paris October 2020 issue. It’s filled with chic 70’s styling by way of shearling gilets and plenty of suede, high-waisted blue jeans and brown leather jackets; cosy turtlenecks and belted tweed blazers, short denim shorts and tall leather boots. The looks, styled by Geraldine Saglio, included pieces from Isabel Marant, Re/Done, Comptoir des Cotonniers, American Vintage, Claudie Pierlot, Mango, Dsquared2, Petit Bateau, A.P.C., Zadig & Voltaire, Iro, Guess, Paul & Joe and more.
Edita was born on New Year’s Day 1989 in Kaunas, Lithuanian SSR, USSR (now Lithuania) to Regina and Gediminas Vilkevičiūtė, a homemaker and teacher, respectively. She has one younger sister who is an event planner. The model described her childhood as “simple and perfect” with “a lot of nature around and forests.” She learned to play instruments, played basketball and rode horses. Vilkevičiūtė began modelling at the age of 17, with a runway debut at the Just Cavalli Spring/Summer 2006 show in Milan. Her very first Vogue Paris cover was in October 2013, which was shot by Mario Testino. Emmanuelle Alt was the magazine’s editor-in-chief at the time.
