This is what I wore today for a lazy day at home. A loose dress with a wool XXL cardigan I found in my mum’s closet. It’s something she wore in the 80’s I suppose. I paired the animal print hat to fix the hair and not be bored by them on my face.
Have I already mentioned that apart from fashion I’m interested in inner design and architecture? Actually these passions grew even before the interest in fashion. Recently I’’ve found some old AD and Elle Decor magazines (from the mid 80’s and 90’s) and I got really inspired by some of the editorials. I was particularly surprised by an article about David Hockney’s house (Architectural Digest October 1983): it could be the perfect set for the SS 2010 trends: pattern mixes, lots of orange and yellow, the nudes of a wooden floor against bold pop-art pictures. AMAZING! It’s impressing how much inner design and fashion can be related each other even though they are different fields. In the end it’s all about shapes, colours and creativity in general. The SS 2010 Victor&Rolf collection is a great example: the volumetric tutu skirts and collars are to die for! If I should choose only one collection for the upcoming season this will definitely be their. I’ve always loved sculptural dresses and they are definitely among the best sculptors in the fashion industry. Chapeau!
I spent half of the day reading these magazines, sipping tea, taking notes, brainstorming ideas and sketching. Could have I desired more?! I would spend all my days doing this hehe.
The other two shots are two DIYs I did some time ago but forgot to post: a peach nail polish (I mixed white, red and yellow colours) and studded wedges I DIYed last October.
A big hug,
