ENG: Adidas Originals by Mary Katrantou. Another designer collaboration? Yes, but this one ist different. Authentic and very close to the orignal!
Collaborations between designers and big fashion brands are known to be a great deal for both sides. The marketing strategy is simple: The brands gets new customers, which have always wanted to buy a "desinger piece" and the designers on the other hand gets much attention because of the campaigns and wins popularity.
The problem often is, that the signature look of the designer goes missing in the working process and certain restrictions of the brand itself.
You definately can't say that in case of Adidas Originals by Mary Katrantzou. The designs wear the typical astethic of the british designer: caleidoscopic prints and bright colors printed on fabrics, which form the silhouette. Die womenswear collection will be available in Adidas falgship - and premiumstores on 15. november, It is worth to get one of this pieces to color up fall season.
ENG: Regular readers of my blog will know that I have a weakness for neon yellow. When I spotted this long kimono at a collegue from work (who found this ASOS kimono on the girls flea market), I searched the net unsuccessfully for a similar one. Then recently I received an invitation from Vessos, to pick me something from the store and found exactly the same kimono in their shop. I have detected many times before, that such online shop quite often sell the same things as Zara, Bershka or ASOS at cheaper prices (often still with the labels from the original shops).
The reaction of my mom at the bright piece: "Now then you've got something for throwing over when you're at the beach." But I think it's far too great to bring it out only once a year and thus combine it with ripped jeans and my Calvin Klein heels, which I found at TK MAXX.
