I always believed that a person changes due to the events taking place with him: with the appearance of new people in life, with a change in priorities and tastes. Of course, in order for an integral personality to form, both complete failures and triumphant ascents are necessary. In adolescence, of course, there was no question of any harmony: there was a complete mess in my head - about the same as in the wardrobe. Remembering my childhood and the time when I started choosing things on my own, I involuntarily begin to smile. I had everything in my arsenal: cowboy boots, plaid shirts, short dresses, high heels, wide jeans … When I realized that I didn’t wear half of these clothes, I began to approach my choice more rationally.
My work greatly influenced the formation of my style: I regularly communicate with interesting people, including designers, I have access to new collections, I follow trends. True, over time you seem to be oversaturated: you begin to choose more concise and practical things for yourself, prioritize quality and neat cut. Most often, I buy clothes at my work, but sometimes I order from online stores. I love to look into men's departments - I always find something for myself there. I am anxious about things with history, so I often bring some little things from my trips. To be honest, I have no luck with second-hand goods - I am very tired of searching for no one knows what. Overall, I'm still changing, looking for myself, and to be honest, I really like it.
The Row raincoat, Comme des Garçons pants, Balenciaga shoes
For several years I have been looking for a raincoat that would match my idea of the ideal. By a happy coincidence, I was able to buy this at work. I like everything about it: volume, material and laconic form.
The versatile wrinkle-free trousers are essential in any wardrobe - they are convenient to take on trips. I always prefer men's shirts: I think that extra darts are not good for the silhouette. In everyday life, I hardly wear shoes with heels, but the kitten heel that has come into fashion is just as comfortable as any pair of sneakers.
Hyein Seo Bag, Jil Sander belt
The belt bag helps out on long walks with the dog.
Sweatshirt and trousers - Nina Donis, Dr. Martens, Acne Studios scarf
The warmest and most comfortable kit in bad weather! Since childhood, I hated pellets - I never buy things that quickly deteriorate, and if something does deteriorate, I try to restore it to its original form or get rid of it altogether. With my nightmare, I began to struggle with the appearance of this scarf in the wardrobe: on the one hand, it is perfectly smooth, and on the other, it is specially rolled.
Comme des Garçons perfume, decoration -t
Fell in love with the bottle, and then with the scent. The chain is a gift, I don't even know where this thing comes from.
Nina Donis dress, Reebok sneakers, cap from a flea market in Lisbon
It would seem that peas are the most banal print, but on this dress it is made by hand, which makes the thing special. I love Nina Donis very much, year after year they create collections in which you can find for yourself a mother's dress, familiar from childhood, and a cozy sweater - whatever! Therefore, I regularly have things from this talented duo.
I sympathize with small brands with a clearly articulated idea. This towel was presented by a friend with whom we are not indifferent to the brand's creativity. Among other things, it can be hung on the wall like a painting.
Ann Demeulemeester dress, Balenciaga pumps
Perhaps the most weightless thing in the closet, which helps out when traveling: does not take up space and saves in the heat.At the same time, unlike many combination models, this dress does not look like underwear - in my opinion, this effect is achieved due to strict lines.
A string bag from Normandy, Mykita glasses
A shopping bag is practical and environmentally friendly. I found mine on a trip to Normandy, where they have been created since the 17th century. A simple thing with a story - it bribed me.
My favorite glasses are Mykita. The beauty is that they are so light that you completely forget that they are on your face. Any other frame now seems uncomfortable.
Organic Top, Marques'Almeida Jeans, Dries Van Noten Slides, Jacquemus Hat
I love open shoulders very much - for me it is as sexy as possible. I bought flared jeans spontaneously - such things subsequently always become my favorites. I got the hat quite recently, I have not yet had time to put it on anywhere. I enjoy this headdress as an art object, but I will definitely take it on my upcoming trip to the coast.
Jacquemus book, Comme des Garsons perfume
I used to collect magazines, and now - books.
Vetements hoodie, Levi's skirt, Reebok sneakers
I rarely wear things with catchy logos, but the cool imbalance of a cute color and absolutely sloppy cut won me over in this hoodie. This skirt is a great alternative to jeans. I have always loved classic American denim, regardless of the model.
Down Jacket Hyein Seo
In this jacket I remind myself of the Michelin-starred Bibendum.
