Today a post with a little bit of info on one fascinating imaginary woman – Wonder Woman. For some time now I have owned a Wonder Woman themed handbag by Italian brand Redwall. It was love at first sight – great Italian design with cool print of a remarkable icon. Lately I realised that I’m carrying this bag without really knowing anything about the woman whose gorgeous printed face is smilling to the world around me. I always looked at her as a fabulous woman in sexy outfits who is kicking some ass out of the bad guys. I did a little research and you can trust me – she is way more than that…
Today’s outfit came into my head the moment I found this green Zara coat…when I saw it, it instantly had a certain vibe which involved countryside, rainy and cloudy weather…with a touch of English aristocracy – well I have certainly read a lot of books and watched numerous films with English aristocrats as main characters to know it!
Equestrian look today isn’t reserved only for professionals – it is quite normal to see horse-riders inspired looks and accessoires in street fashion and on the runways. The look is very elegant, and perfect for cloudy and cold days. The main parts of the look are quality well-tailored coats and jackets, vests, fitted trousers, and high leather boots – I can bet that almost every girl has some variation of this look. Maybe in our everyday outings we don’t wear high hats, veils and whips, which were a common part of this look in the early 20th century, but equestrian look and its variations will definitely never go out of fashion!
Honore de Balzac once said: „Woman is the most charming creature, who changes her heart as easily as she does her gloves.”
There is something rather special in gloves. We often carry handbags, and wear shoes, belts and even hats, but gloves…not so much. Gloves had a huge role in fashion and in development of man kind, but they have always been a bit special. Firstly worn for protection in cold winter days, later they developed into a status symbol. I would give anything to live in the days when it was perfectly normal to wear gloves to the theatre, parties, dinners…even just walking around town. So these days cold weather is the perfect excuse to let my glove collection do all the talking! These black and red leather gloves are the first pair of gloves I have ever bought…they protect my hands of course, but with them I feel elegant, special and a bit devilish all at the same time :).
