Here’s the video of my collaboration with Wait and See Milano!
Collaboration with Wait and See Milano
I am really glad to present my collaboration with Uberta Zambeletti’s Concept Store Wait and See Milano. The collaboration consisted in asking me to style a series of looks, choosing the clothes from the spring summer collections 2014. I was lucky enough to have a preview of a few of some of the fantastic pieces which will be sold soon enough directly at the store and online. Some of the brands of the garments chosen for the shoot included the names of, Angelo Vintage, Samuji, Paul & Joe Sister, Erika Cavallini Semi Couture, Vivetta etc.
The pictures from the shoot were shot in the streets of Milan, near the concept store. I will soon post the video, which accompanies the shoot, showing the “work in process” behind the feature. You can also find more information about the concept store on their website – waitandsee.it – and on their Facebook page.
This first outfit was inspired by the 60’s and the mod movement which came along with it.The brown vest i chose reminded me of one of those “hairdresser style” robes which they would often wear as overcoats. I simply wanted to pair up a printed romper with garments of the same colour scheme. On the other hand, I chose to wear striped socks to deviate from a “matchy matchy” complete look.
This second outfit was inspired by street artists and their typical ‘swaggy’ look, as you can clearly notice from the ‘ain’t no wifey’ beanie and military jacket. However, i was also inspired by Jemima Kirke’s boho look in one of the episodes of HBO’s Girls, that’s why i decided to pair the jacket and the hat with a pair of very loose ‘pijama pants’ and leopard printed boots.
This outfit was inspired by green and nature. I decided i would mix up a pair of vintage pants which reminded me of the Missoni print, with a simple, sheer, nature-inspired vest and at last, pairing it with a leather vest.
This outfit was mainly inspired by the 50’s, as i wanted to mix up two different styles and end up with an edgy but feminine look. This is why i decided to pair up this colorful floral vintage long skirt, which could be considered very plain if paired up only with a simple top, with Vivetta’s pink ‘hand’ shirt, and a white necklace. I also thought that pairing these bright red oxfords with floral socks, instead of wearing high heels, would certainly give the outfit a unique edge.
The main idea behind the inspiration for this outfit was the mix of different textures, patterns and styles, but in the same colour scheme. The mix of a loose pair of silk pants, a ‘fishnet’ top, and a very classy overcoat with a silicone neckpiece and a ‘gun bag’ gives the whole outfit a futuristic and/or sinister edge.
At last, hence my passion for prints and futuristic robes, i decided to pair up these printed pants and top from Paul and Joe Sister with a sequined vest and these amazing geometrically irregular shoes from Fama Pastore. Doesn’t remind you of a 80’s discoteque inspired look?
Rodarte’s Autumn Winter 2014/15 was a fantastic throwback to the 70’s geeky fashion. The collection featured beautiful sparkly parka jackets and french berets, bejeweled prom shoes, granda glasses, knitted crochet experiments and stripes. But let’s not forget about the fantastic Star Wars printed pictures on the finale dresses. Imagine watching the prom scene from Carrie, or the Virgin Suicides, and re-arranging it in a 90’s context. What could ever come out? Something truly, truly awesome. Now THAT is a collection i’m definitely coveting to buy and wear next winter!

This girl is such an inspiration for so many people! You all should totally check out the rest of her work about gender equality and feminism.
some new stuff I’m working on, I get tons of anonymous messages like this every day and while this isn’t unique to women, the content of the messages and the frequency in which I get them are definitely related to my gender. I almost exclusively get them after I post selfies. The authority people feel they have to share their opinion on my appearance is something myself and many other girls online deal with daily.
