Fashion Spy is back! As you all probably know I did not spend my summer holidays tanning on foreign golden sandy beaches, but was in fact near the Tuchola forest trying to take on a completely new role for me — that of a mother! After two months, I began to miss Warsaw, my job as a stylist, meetings with friends from the fashion industry, photoshoots, even running around with Ikea bags filled with clothes (though this last desire vanished quite quickly!).
The reality of going back to work was not as rosy as I thought. My idea of working with a two-month old newborn was wildly detached from reality. However, on one day, a miracle occurred. I had three meetings concerning the production of upcoming photoshoots and my boyfriend promised that he’d look after Henry for a few hours. I could not pass this offer up. Hence, I dressed up and hit town, forgetting, at least for a moment, about diapers and baby sleepers.
My great wish was to finally put on something that was not a tracksuit or a pyjama. I ultimately chose an asymmetric dress from Bohoboco in a colour, which has recently conquered the hearts of not only the fashion world, but also the realms of architecture, film and food, namely Millenial pink. This colour virtually took over the world in 2014. That is soon after the premiere of Wes Anderson’s ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’. In 2016 a very similar colour, rose quartz, was announced as colour of the year. Designers could not remain indifferent to this. Thus we admired candy pink dresses in the collections of Gucci, Nina Ricci, Proenza Schouler, Oscar de la Renta and Vetements. Pink, as a colour, freed itself from its kitsch marking, and suddenly became a really hot shade. By wearing it, it kindly took a few sleepless nights off my face, while the interesting construction of the dress allowed to hide and reveal all that’s necessary. I paired the dress with a black Lady Dior bag and a pair of thick heeled shoes, and I’m back to my professional whirlwind!
