Animal print for every day part °2


Animal print for every day  part °2

Some history 

Animal prints have long been a popular style for many reasons. For one, they are generally expensive and considered rather exotic; hence they are a symbol of wealth and status. Throughout history, kings and other high people have used animal print rugs and such as a sign of status just as mounted animals are kept as trophies. Animal print became popular for women in the United States in the late 1960s during the Bohemian movement. (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_print)

Thankfully, hunting is no more considered a great "sport" everywhere in the world as people realize that there is nothing glorious in killing an animal. However, the trend of having animal print has not yet died. Of course, today animal print  do not mean animal skin. In fact, if you would be careful, the very name indicates that this is not supposed to be the real skin but only their prints. (adapteda after: http://www.articlesbase.com/interior-design-articles/why-are-animal-print-rugs-so-much-in-demand-365144.html#)

In this way you have plenty to choose from the following animal print clothes - lion, wild cat, leopard, zebra, tiger, goat, panther, grizzly bear, polar bear, wolf and many more. You can wear as much print as you like, or just add a little touch, with animal print accessories, just to give a hint of the animal inside you.

The general rule of wearing Animal print to wear it successfully, relate the volume of animal print to your personality. Check the videos below  for some tips about how to wear animal prints clothes. Enjoy!

                                   My homework
   I  combined my leo coverall and a snake dress with black clothes and black heels to equilibrate the look. Instead my leo-rose tights, that I like so much I’ve matched them with pistacchio dress and lemon neon belt, black top under the dress. Hope you like it. Or you may have better suggestion for me that  I will appreciate.

Beauty experiment


Beauty experiment

I would like to share with you my todays beauty experiment. While preparing the fruit salad for lunch today, I got inspired to use the  fruit peels to make a face maskJ  I blended  a peel of orange, apple and pear with yogurt(1 teaspoon) and a little bit of water to get a creamy mixture. I have left it in the refrigerator for my entire  lunch.  After that I applied the mask on my face and my neck  for  about  10-15 minutes. It was nice but I think would be better to add a teaspoon of  honey  or an yolk-egg  in order to fix together  the mixture.  After applying the mask my face looks more lighter and fresh.  I have to practice more doing homemade natural beauty recipes. :P  You may like it, thought. J



[RO] Azi in timp ce  pregateam salata de fructe  pentru  desertul de pranz  mi-a venit idea sa folosesc cojile pentru a prepara o masca de fata.  Am adunat cojile de mar, portocala si para si le-am trecut  prin mixer adaogand o lingura de iaurt si un pic de apa pana cand am obtinut un amestec  omogen.  Le-am lasat in frigider pe parcursul pranzului. Iar mai tarziu am aplicat-o  pe fata si pe gat pentru o perioada de 10-15 minute. Atunci mi-am dat seama  ca probabil era mai inspirat sa adaog  miere sau galbenush de ou pentru a lega amestecul mai bine. Oricum rezultatul m-a multumit. Fata a capatat un look mai luminos si proaspat. Citricile au proprietatea de a inchide porii. Mi-a placut experimentul de azi si cred ca ar trebui sa exersez mai des .  Sper sa va placa si voua. J Pupici.

Take care,

Nicole

Lucky skirt



Lucky skirt





Dark lady in vintage. Zara heels from old collection

I didn’t wear this skirt for such a long time. I have bought it in Romania, in a small shop in Lipscani that is the street situated in the old part of the Bucharest. It was my lucky skirt. I remember that two years ago, when I went for the final interview with Qatar Airways in Milan and two recruiter ladies asked me for the an ordinary picture, I gave them one where I was wearing this skirt. And suddenly my interview turned into an enthusiastic conversation about fashion. J I don’t know if I have passed that interview due to my skirt but at the end  they told me to bring the skirt in Doha. J

[RO] De-un veac  n-am mai purtat fusta aceasta.  O cumparasem  in Romania, intr-un magazin din Lipscani, situat in centrul Bucurestiului intr-o zona mai veche. E fusta care, acum doi ani, mi-a purtat noroc  la  interviul final pentru Qatar Airways, in Milano. Erau doua domnite de la Recrutare, mi-au cerut o poza obisnuita si eu le-am dat una in care purtam aceasta fusta. Imediat  interviul s-a schimbat intr-o conversatie   entuziasta despre fashion. J Nu stiu exact daca am luat interviul datorita fustei dar imi amintesc  ca la final mi-au zis sa imi aduc si fusta atunci cand ajung in Doha. :)


See you soon,

New to the scene designer: DAVID KOMA


New to the scene designer: DAVID KOMA  




David Koma is relatively new to the fashion world and is the most interesting designer to watch at the moment.  He is  24 years old, native from Georgia  and  grew up in Saint-Petersburg. He started his fashion career at the age of 15 when he move to London to study at Central Saint Martins were he produced a graduate collection of industrial, architectural and sci-fi inspiration that has brought him Harrods Design Award.
He has shown for a few seasons at London Fashion Week. I adore the old collection where Koma used  embroidery and laser techniques that creates waves and ripples, like lattice-work, in leather and cashmere body-con dresses, and swingy capes. Digital face-prints, and coloured fox trims added a Pop Art effect. “The fur pompoms could have been ridiculous and it was a real challenge to make it elegant and keep it beautiful” explains Koma in an interview with Vogue “I wanted the silhouette of the woman to look classy – every time I think how can I not destroy it.”  Basis  for Koma’s  collection was an avant-garde Japanese artist – Yayoi Kusama, famous for her polka dots, spots obsession.

For the SS 2012 David  Koma  propose a minimalist sci-fi tribal fusion. The dresses were constructed with fringe which encircling neat the waist and Polynesian tribal motifs, which were either set into dresses or on jersey dévoré so as to appear painted on the skin. For SS 2012 collection David Koma had inspired by the sculptures of Peter Jansen and collaborated with jewelry designer Sarah Angold, who gave dresses a king of reptilian look. Here below you can see a few pictures from of ready-to-wear Koma’s collection and a video from the fashion show. Enjoy!











If David Koma wouldn’t been a designer, I am sure he would be a brilliant sculptor, architect or painter.

Have a nice week,

Nicole
