I had the honour to be chosen by the H&M Hellas team as one of the bloggers to present to you, exclusively, a complete outfit of the upcoming limited edition H&M Studio collection. Each unique piece is instantly shoppable at hm.com after the Paris fashion show on the 1st of March 2017, and available in selected stores globally the following day.
"Inspired by the passion and strength of ballet, these collections balance traditional tailoring techniques with the functionality and high-tech elements of sportswear. Clean-cut wool garments are mixed with fine knits, voluminous silk pieces and translucent nylon layers to create a contemporary clash of textures. Intricate detailing and a dash of pink lend a romantic feel to the season's black and white silhouette, while leather headbands, gym bags and reworked trekking sandals add athleisure appeal to the full story."
I have chosen an outfit that represents a completely different side of myself, that of the romantic, which I don't reveal very often. For me the background has a meaningful role for the photographs; it has to match the style and the garments as, I believe, it creates the whole atmosphere. Being a huge fan of symmetry and a perfectionist make me want to show those elements on my pictures, event if I sometimes, don't have the opportunity to do so.
