- My love of all things Adidas by Stella McCartney;
- ballet and the movie ‘Black Swan’;
- new year, new country, new gym, new Pilates teacher, and;
- my growing love affair with the colour pink
Residing in my temporary NYC apartment – now known to me as the ‘house of mirrors’ – feels rather like living in a dance studio*, hence the perfect excuse for this dance inspired mini shoot. I’m a big fan of Stella McCartney’s designs for Adidas and I love to wear this range to the gym. At this time of the year when the phrase “hitting the gym” is rife, I like to buy a new (or dust off an old, ahem) kit to wear as it seems to inspire me to get moving. I recently started Pilates classes in Manhattan and I found this old Stella McCartney wrap top that I bought from Ebay two years ago. Honestly I’ve never worn it, but it seems very “now” due to the balletic influences from the film “Black Swan”. If you haven’t already seen the movie I’d certainly recommend it, for both the Rodarte-designed costumes and the main character’s descent into **pathological obsession and desire. My own obsession at the moment is with the colour pink and the delightful images of desire contained within this post. Especially the Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla lingerie and the Jimmy Choo flats below…
Wearing: Black leggings and pale pink wrap around top, both Adidas by Stella McCartney (old season). Black T Shirt, Marks & Spencer.
