To work on a DIY project with one big fashion platform was definitely one of my long-time wish of mine. I see this as a worthy experience, and as an opportunity to make my work on embellishment and upcycling better known.
So let me introduce you my collaboration with Zalando Switzerland, recorded last year in Berlin. It’s not the first time we teamed up, but this one is definitely a crafty ‘Virginie Peny for Zalando’ episode.
First item: the denim floral shirt.
Denim might be one of my favorite materials to work with. Many of my jeans have been shortened and cropped over the last years, my collection is just incredible. It’s indeed easy to make nice embellishments with denim fabric’s rests.
For this denim shirt I get inspired from some streetstyles and vegetal prints. Floral patterns as well embellishments go never out of the fashion circle, they belong to the essentials. Specially for this season! So I simply cut, sewed the shape all around to upgrade the finishings. And stitched the flowers on one shirt’s side.
I like the asymmetric result. For the final shooting I wore the shirt with boyfriend jeans and white sneakers.
Then the second item: the veiled beanie hat. I’ve been a fan of it for years! Never loose one occasion to wear different versions, like with the sporty cap here during my last holiday trip.
How easy it is? Check it out here:
I find the outfit with cropped top, wide pants and clogs super cool. These kind of volume games are my favorite, reminds me the seventies looks.
In any case, the cap as well as the beanie hat will bring an individual touch to your simplest outfit. One must-DIY!
By the way, the DIY kit for the veiled accessories is available in my online shop, in three colors. Make your own now!
I had a wonderful working time in Berlin with the Zalando team, and really thank you guys for this experience. In case it’s your first visit here on the blog, welcome and have fun discovering my world. Whatever you do: just make it last!
