Look of the Week – The View
All I have been dreaming of these past few weeks were bustling cobblestone streets dotted with street musicians. You know, those bursting with that ‘flair’ seemingly drawing in visitors to the streets of the likes of Barcelona, Milano or Buenos Aires. Naturally, the paradox of wanting that which I can’t have found me daydreaming of getting lost in the Mediterranean one too many times. In a search for some serious distraction, I went and reminded myself why living on an island 19 000km off my hometown, in a city under construction is not that bad after all. It’s the view of the hills overlooking the surrounding peninsula that gets me every time. Hence, taking the opportunity to shoot some beautiful new pieces by local Kiwi designers on this famed Kiwi outlook was an easy decision.
The view lays the backdrop for an equally edgy and sleek look. The floaty silk dress makes an attempt at breaking up the tomboy vibes from the tailored vest, while the accessories are bold yet blend in nicely with a darker colour scheme than usual.
What do you think of this week’s look?
