Vest - Diana Matias // Crop Top - Stradivarius // Skirt - Lefties // Sandals - Filipe Sousa (for Eureka)
Where should I start? Maybe by bragging about portuguese talent, or should I say: portuguese talented designers such as Diana Matias. Needless to say it is an honor to own a piece, especially when it is this vest offered by my beloved friends for my birthday. Yes, it was in April, still it's from a Spring/Summer collection, don't blame me for not liking how it looks with thick winter clothes underneath! Personal life apart, let me introduce you to Line (Spring/ Summer '13), a collection from which I would absolutely love to own at least 50% of the pieces, not only because of it's minimal and Wang-ish vibe but also because it's so pragmatic and casual yet sophisticated. Not to mention the zippers, structured cuts which let a small and controlled amount of bare skin visible, the lines drawn with zippers elongating the female body, powerful designs for a modern, urban woman.
Since we're talking about lines, photographing this look demanded some cohesion, therefore me and my (super talented) photographer/boyfriend chose a wall where light and shadow, black and white, met creating a contrast. A vertical line divides the horizontal pictures creating a paradoxal statement and accentuating the symmetry and geometry of the vest, as well as its two vertical panels.
