During the Summer, I got this fabulous pair of Conte of Florence boots as a gift from a very dear and special person. Since I never owned such different boots, I was so excited and eager to wear them. Well the weather is not quite in their favor, yet, but the snow will come. However, I did wear them on a rainy day and I felt good, but not great. Something was missing. A touch of joy and happiness. I then saw these boots as a white canvas for my personality portrait.
Since I already have my super-special-hand-painted shoes, I said why not have an additional super-special-hand-painted boots? So I called the one and only Diana Ribana and asked for help and creativity. And now my boots are upgraded to something unique, something that puts a smile on everybody's face, including mine.
As I've said here, I don't like taking photos without people's consent, but as you can see this beautiful young woman was in the middle of the street and in a hurry. That is why it was a little problematic to run after her and ask her name and permission.
I thought for 10 seconds if it would be OK to photograph her, but her oversized coat, her Celine bag, and her relaxed attitude while standing in the middle of the street, pushed me into taking her photo. I do really hope, if she sees this photo, not to be mad.
When I saw the book cover of The Trail on a website, I immediately thought about Kenzo's Fall/Winter 2013 campaign. I found it very interesting how they match, so I tried to find other resemblances between other fashion photos and book covers. I will try to find some more :)
