MY TOP 2
While recovering from surgery in March I had plenty time to relax and read fashion mags. The 2 trends I gravitated towards were corsettes and transparency.
I fell in love with Miu Miu’s 50s style bikinis. I loved the high waist and cut away details. The colours and patterns were also fresh and retro at the same time. Bravissima Miuccia!
On my wish list is the corsette jacket from La Perla. It is structured elegance! Although black would be the most long wearing colour it looks stunning in baby blue because you can really see the construction of the garment and the details.
What can I say about my love of transparency – it never ends! This season I love the patchwork and lace at Erdem as well as the fabric panels and toile at Louis Vuitton. Honourable mention goes to Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen for fabric panels in orderly stripes.
I was so lucky to add this transparent jacket with flower embroidery to my wardrobe a couple of weeks ago. I was browsing the clearance rack at Top Shop when I came across this beauty.
I created 4 looks for the dolls for Spring.
On the left are 2 corsette and skirt sets inspired by Miu Miu. I also added some transparent cut-outs to the yellow print skirt.
On the right are 2 transparent skirts with similar tops. I wanted the attention to be placed on the skirts.
