Paris Fashion Week AW 2012...Elena

Elena Perminova, after Stella McCartney, Paris, March 2012.

Love this outfit on Elena - sure, there is a lot going on (patterns, patent/shiny fabric, statement flowers, colour) but somehow she makes it all work together cohesively. To me, it is the sort of inspiring outfit where you can find at least one piece that you really love and could see working in your own wardrobe. Personally, I love Elena's floral neckpiece - so very beautiful.

Recreate Elena's look (kind of):

Some cute shorty shorts: Rory Beca Orissa silk running shorts, or  Anna Sui printed silk shorts

Jil Sander open toe heels (in white) or Camilla Skovgaard Roller sandals

Michael by Michael Kors blush pink clutch


  1. I love that look, Marni for H & M collection is great! xx

  2. This look isn't something everyone could pull off. Usually, I don't like when outfits are so busy, but like you said, she made it cohesive and coherent - it tells a story and, thus, I love it.

    Take a look at my fashion illustrations and art:

  10. Hey thanks everyone for letting me know it is H&M for Marni - I thought it looked awfully familiar! Is the neckpiece H&M as well???? No doubt it would have sold out in approximately 2 minutes if it was......

    @Sunday - damn skippy! Wasn't Monday amazing - blue skies, sunshine and everyone was in a good mood! What pieces did you buy????

    @Joana- yes, I don't think I could ever make this whole thing work together like Elena has but pieces of it, definitely!

    p.s. I love it when Elena smiles! She looks so genuinely happy

  11. cUTE ! I love the pants ! :D
