I often think that legs (yes, legs!) are the most expressive part of woman's body. The way she walks, the way she moves, sits, dresses her legs with beautiful shoes, the way she steps ever so lightly says so much about the girl. It was hard not to get inspired by it. :-)
Those of you who follow me on Facebook have been introduced to my ''Naughty Charlotte" hat I have created as a part of my latest Collection "Les Enfants Terribles" and to the story behind it. I thought it would be a good idea to document the inspiration point here, in my Blog.
Naughty Charlotte" was inspired by a very particular event in Anastasia's life. It was created after a beautiful memory of the morning of Anastasia's 16Th Birthday when she was sitting outside, waiting ever so patiently for her guests to arrive, in her beautiful dress and jeweled red flats. There was something so Innocent in the way Anastasia moved her feet so that the sun would catch a sparkle in her jeweled flats... Not a little girl any more and not yet a woman. I wanted to freeze that moment in time.
The legs for this very unique hat were made out of ceramic and created for me by an extraordinary dollmaker and my wonderful friend Tamara Pivnuk. :-) Oh, and did I mention that I used nail polish by Yves Saint Laurent to paint red flats. :-)
Wishing you beautiful week ahead. The weather is spoiling us here, in New York and it makes it possible to wear beautiful shoes for a little bit longer. :-)
