I can’t believe how fast time can fly. My dear friend, Basil Soda passed away a couple of months ago already. I know I haven’t written any blog post about that yet but it’s just that I don’t feel reading talking about it. I grew up very fond of his design and with each dress he designed for me, I learnt more about his vision of fashion, his concept of a beautiful dress and everything that inspires him. Few days ago, the fashion label has announced that it will continue the legacy and revealed the brand’s fall winter 2016 ready-to-wear collection. This collection was created by Basil and I couldn’t help but fall in love with it because truly each one of these looks is gorgeous.
My way of paying a very subtle tribute to Basil was to wear pieces from his latest collection to Paris Fashion Week. I have to admit it wasn’t easy doing so. He used to always confirm/reject my choice of a dress, depending what he would see more fit for my body shape/character, etc.
To celebrate Basil, I wanted a happy dress and I couldn’t help but fall in love with this bold white dress. The details on the upper part of the piece are gorgeous, I love the use of colors, the sheer details, the oversized pockets, the large belt.
I am wearing: Basil Soda ready-to-wear FW16 dress, YSL blue pumps, Lady Dior purse, Dior earrings, sunglasses and ring.
Location: Avenue Montaigne, Paris, France.
