For the love of silk

As promised in my Instagram post, I’d like to share with you my outfits that showcase the delicate hand crafted silk work by Leyla Navab, a true piece of art one could wear (featured in the Sheedvash magazine – December 2016 issue).

Prior to the photoshoot, I hadn’t seen the silk scarfs I was suppose to present. When Leyla arrived in Vancouver, I had the pleasure of meeting her to go over her designs. Her work is truly amazing. The floral artwork painted on 100% silk is not only flawless in design, but priceless. Little did I know, she had a show later that day to present her collection, and so my photoshoot was cut short. Despite the short notice and disastrous weather, the shoot was a success. Luckily, the camera wasn’t “smart” enough to show that my shoes were completely wet. 🙂

Here is my first look wearing the green silk scarf with pink flowers, my favourite. I decided to match this with my KENZOxHM trousers, Zara black cutout sweater, and my newest hat from Urban Outfitters. I should tell you that the Kenzo trousers are double-sided 😀 (will save the other side for a separate post). 😉img_4556





This is my second look, wearing the black silk scarf with red flowers, this was enough to give life to an all black look and went well with my Zara velvet boots and shorts (although it looks like a skirt). As for the blouse, I got it from TopShop, and lastly, my limited edition Chloe bag to wrap it up. img_4680





Here is my last look wearing the choker silk scarf. I don’t know how to describe the colour, it’s something between emerald and teal. For this, I went for a more “classic” look, keeping on the same blouse and pulling things together with my black Zara blazer and trousers. In this shot, I’m wearing the only “comfortable” Christian Louboutin pumps I could find. 😉 To wrap things up, I threw in a dash of red with my lipstick and Chanel purse… and of course, I would never forget my hat (H&M).img_4769
