One thing is sure about fashion weeks. However much you plan your outfits and however much you’ve packed, things will change along the way. I had all my outfits for London figured out, but ended up wearing nothing of it like I thought I would. Let me give you a few examples.
For my first day I didn’t want to stand out too much and thought I’d just go with what I’m wearing above. A pop of color, my Donald tee from Gucci and being basic. Then as I arrived I realized, nope, this just isn’t going to work. First of all I didn’t think it was fashion at all (and you can be honest, it really isn’t when you look at the pic above) and secondly, it was too warm to wear it anyway. So I changed right about everything about my outfit into what you see below, captured by Pause Magazine and the talented Jake Hateley working for them.
Here’s another example. I wanted to go for the carpenter look with harem pants, a simple white tee and a backpack. Well. All good so far, but I realized no one would like even look my way so I ended up…
…wearing this thing below instead. I combined the harem pants with a metallic top, added a straw hat and whoops I had street style photographers swarming over me, in this case Viktor Sugeng. And yeah, for those concerned, the cigarettes are only there for the pictures as photographers love people in action (that is, smoking and let’s be honest, how else do you quench your hunger during FW?).
I haven’t had time to go through the internet yet to see how many pictures of me and my different outfits are out there, but when I do, I promise to make a full post of all magazines and webzines I’m featured in. Until then this is just a sneak peak into about 1% of my wardrobe and the lesson learned is: Don’t overthink it when packing. You’ll change your mind for sure depending on weather, mood or what not. Some days you just want to blend in for that matter.
