HOW TO WEAR A PIECE OF ART
Were you marveling at the gorgeous designs that hit the runways the recent Fashion Week season? Were you then maybe wistfully sighing – thinking if only you were a millionaire, to be able to afford those pieces – like I sometimes do? I have got good news for you: With what you already have, what you love, what you always wear and the new season’s key piece you need to have and want to treasure forever – you will be able to create a look that is spot on trend! The rest is being yourself, since fashion is the art of expression.
I had this Versace leather skirt forever and it has already been altered for me. I teamed it with the Carven Hyronimus Bosch silk print T-shirt, the season’s power piece I had to have and know it will outlast the short period of current. The print is inspired by the paintings of imaginative painter Hyronimus Bosch, who lived in the Netherlands in the 15th Century. I would say it tells the story of some sort of Apocalypse , maybe from how the painter imagined it to be – quite interesting taking into account that he lived almost six hundred years before us.
Together with the skirt the outfit looks like a dress made of diverse fabric – leather, silk and jersey and the vivid combination of differing materials has been another hot trend spotted throughout new collections of plenty of designers. I bought my studded trench in a small boutique in Nice for not more than fifty Euros – I just thought it is a cool piece that will always compliment an outfit. Time is always a good investment for finding cool affordable pieces across the globe. I had my shoes and bag for long- they are perfect, long-lasting basics – true investment pieces because they are always chic.
At London Fashion Week I could see the ear cuff trend coming to live when I photographed the TOPSHOP show and I must say I completely digged it. So when recently city hopping to London I brought one with me. May not be everyone’s cup of tea as the British may say, but I love the idea of being more creative with jewelery and also more experimental.Dark Moss Deborah Lippmann nail polish I bought in summer. Natural but tamed hair – the rest is – you guessed it – the art of expression. Enjoy the photos – I think there is always some new detail to discover.
