MARY KATRANTZOU FOR HARBOUR CITY

JVP_7709
Pictures by James Vyn

FLOWER DETAIL It is always quite difficult to stay fashionable under the rain, first of all because you simply just want to cover yourself up in any way possible and second because usually umbrellas aren’t the most fashionable accessories out there, well that’s what I thought and I was wrong. Guess what, the popular for her crazy bold prints designer Mary Katrantzou has teamed up with Hong Kong’s biggest shopping center called Harbour City. She designed this gorgeous, blossom covered, vivid looking, limited edition umbrella to help raise funds for the “The Community Chest of Hong Kong”. Always great when fashion speaks up for a cause isn’t it? As a huge fan of her dresses and obviously prints, I couldn’t be more excited to actually discover this little item and I wasn’t disappointed. I received one  to show especially it to you guys, and so here it is.  It is like walking around under the rain protected by a lovely colorfull japanesse tree. 

So I was waiting for a rainy day to shoot the pictures, and when finally on friday there was a couple of rain drops, James and I rushed outside trying not to miss the occasion. And guess what, once we were ready to shoot and comfortable with the place, the rain stopped. I mean, this never happens on a regular basis,  the rain usually starts when you get out… So yeah, that it the reason why I am walking around like a dumbass with an umbrella while all normal people don’t. Must admit I received a couple of stares, people don’t like people who do weird stuff like walking around with a flowery umbrella and a bold rhinestone necklace which I am by the way crazy about. Not only because it totally reminds me of Lanvin, but because it is the perfect detail. Statement necklaces had such a huge success lately, and it feels like this one is my treasure find. 

Also wanted to say that James and I just got back from Milan! We have spent our week-end in Italy for a project with weekend4two. If you guys follow me on twitter and instagram you already know all that but I am going to start posting the pictures on wednesday and hope you will like it Italy was amazing, I love the language, the people, the food, architecture and of course the shopping which was really fun. Thank you all again for your comments, I read them all and would love to answer to each one of them. See you tomorrow!

It is idd difficult to stay fashionable when it rains. I am also kind of bored by the stripes and ugly flower patterns on most umbrellas so I have opted for a plain black one so far. The one you’re carrying is definitely a very fashionable alternative!

Love,

I was looking at this necklace in Zara a couple of days ago but decided it is too much high fashion for normal days. But it is gorgeous with no doubts:)) What really catch my eye are your trousers, such a beautiful colour!

I agree the umbrella is a very pretty one, it might make you wish for rain once :)

Love your pants and necklace, dark green is such a glamourous colour somehow

I can’t decide what I love more here. The umbrella is marvellous, but that necklace goes so well together with the whole outfit, reflecting the color of the pants and it’s so sparkly!

the 3rd pic with the umbrella- amazing!

Absolutely amazing photos! I loved the umbrella and the whole outfit! I really dislike people who stare at me on the street, because of something I’m wearing.

I had the same thought recently – I wanted an umbrella I’d enjoy showing off, besides I kept losing all the ugly ones all the time. So I got myself an umbrella with the print of one of my favorite paintings – “The Scream” by Edvard Munch and now I love when it rains! I’m also thinking about getting a couple of other umbrellas so I can choose a perfect match while going out.

Also, just have to say, I love how you accessorize your outfits, you are a total icon in that for me. And emerald green is one of my favorite colors, so I think this look is perfect.

That umbrella is so cute!

such a pretty look :)

Tu es magnifique.
Parmi tous les blogs mode, que ce soit des blogs connus, ou des anonymes comme moi qui essayent de se faire leur place, je pense qu’au fil du temps, c’est la qualité qui primera. Et ton blog est vraiment un des meilleurs que je connaisse car tout d’abord tu es belle, tu as vraiment un style propre et tu ne suis pas bêtement les tendances comme tout le monde, tu te les approprie seulement quand elles te correspondent. Tu gardes toujours en tête de rester élégante, et après tout une fille se doit d’être jolie, ce qui n’est au final pas toujours le cas lorsqu’on veut suivre les mouvements rock ou grunge, ou certaines tendances un peu ridicules mais qu’on trouve banales car portées par tout le monde.
Ce que je voulais dire, c’est qu’on se demande parfois pourquoi et comment certains blogs on obtenu leur succès, mais pour le tien il n’y a aucun doute : la qualité de son contenu. Les photos sont vraiment magnifiques, il ne se passe pas un article sans que l’on se dise “wow”, et je pense que tu mérites la place que tu t’es faite dans la blogosphère, et je te souhaite de continuer à monter et d’atteindre le sommet !
Et en plus de cela tu es jeune ! Tu as un bel avenir devant toi.

Bises !
