Darker times. The mood of the streets shifted, gray skies, gray buildings, early sunset, late sunrise. I though I should adapt to this new mood and embrace it, which is why this series of pictures are much darker and have a different tone to them than my usual, bright and almost(!) over exposed ones. I took these with Romina right before the Mode Suisse event, which I must say was fantastic this year, and it was almost too dark to take them, yet I love the effect.
I was inspired by sailors, their commitment to comfort yet ability to look so casual and chic. So I mixed mostly the traditional navy, black and white hues. The blazer is a piece I have owned for year and was actually one of my first buys when I started interesting myself in fashion, it is the classic by MaxMara. The skirt is Zara, from the latest collection, and has such a great length and fabric it's perfect for winter. The shoes, the shoes, oh these shoes, I think they have been my most coveted buy this season, they are Louis Vuitton and happen to be the most comfortable, beautiful and perfect autumn shoes (a rare combination). I am also wearing very warm wooly sock as I have a strong appreciation for comfort (like sailors) and a H&M Collection cap. Accessorised with rings from Asos and Juicy Couture and the famous 2.55 Chanel bag I am officially a wanna-be sailor. Arr!
