Angelic : This is a piece from the Jean Paul Gaultier SS04 runway collection. It is very simplictic yet noteworthy. The polished corset adds a very delicate but seductive feel to this outfit. Jean Paul’s corsets have been known for being very unique, bizarre and extraordinary, especially the infamous pink satin, conical breasted corset that was worn by Madonna in 1990. This is a more plain sailing design compared to his other creations, but it works & goes well with this open neck, ridged, silk shirt underneath. The unique and exclusive design of these Giuseppe Zanotti X Kanye West patent leather stilettos caught my eye. When I look at these heels I see A mix between Angel wings & flames. I like this because in a way it’s giving the consumer the option to choose what they want it to be, because even if somebody sees what you see, they still don’t see what you see. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. To complete the outfit, I added a Balenciaga choker that is embellished with diamonds and a Tom Ford crystal logo “chain mail” side bag. This shade of metallic grey that has been displayed in all elements of this outfit is very beautiful and refreshing.
Stripes & Neutral Shades : Stripes are one of the oldest cloth patterns and there is a long history behind this. Starting from the Middle Ages, striped clothing was used to represent an outcast in society e.g. servants, court jesters, “madmen” , prisoners & even prostitutes. As the years have gone by, they have become more trendy and chic. They can make a graphic statement depending on how they are styled. I decided to choose this cropped, cream blazer by Orseund Iris along with a flared, cropped trousers from the same brand. I like the style of this ensemble, the camel shaded stripes are very thin and I also like the delicate pieces of thread hanging from the arms of the blazer. To complete this look, I decided to pick Yeezy Season 2 Clear heels (they are quite plain and can be matched with almost anything) & a Jacquemus “Le Chiquito” croco stamp cream micro bag.
