Style Icon: Villanelle (Killing Eve!)

Tereza Šťastná

Summer holiday is over and the time has come, to pull out our transitional clothing. 

As you might know, I like to turn to TV for fashion inspiration. And today is no different. I have a tip for an amazing show, that will help you to get over those rainy days and give you some serious fashion cravings. 

Let me introduce you to Killing Eve.

Killing Eve! is a British Spy thriller TV show about detective Eve (played by Sandra Oh) and gorgeous assassin Villanelle (portrayed by Jodie Comer). It’s a typical cat and mouse sort of story and it will not let you watch only one episode. 

But I am not here to review the show, I want to talk fashion! There is simply no other villain that is as Trés Chic as Villanelle. I guess, being an assassin, you don’t need to save your big bucks for building a house so you can make it rain in high-class boutiques. Let’s talk outfits! 

The most noticeable outfit of the whole show. It’s a statement and very well planned provocation. The fluffy pink Molly Goddard dress is paired with black bra and Balenciaga boots for the same reason we dress up for exams, doctor visits or job interviews. To show that we have our own shit together at the given moment.

This preppy look Villanelle wears in Oxford is so much fun. The hypnotic tie and baggy pants are mocking the typical schoolboy look which is a great example of expressing yourself. So yes, I love that this shows you can look appropriate but still give your middle finger to the world. Something like The Queen and her brooches.

The Alexander McQueen gown is one of my favorites and rightfully it’s one of the outfits with the longest time on screen. I especially love it in combination with the polka dot fascinator. Villanelle and tulle is simply like a match made in the crime drama heaven.

The Amsterdam pink blouse is an oversized silk shirt blouse by Rosie Assoulin. Honestly, that’s a designer I’ve never heard of before, but I fell in love with immediately, while researching for this article. Check out the interview Leandra Medine Cohen did with the designer.

Btw this is one of my favorite scenes of the whole show. And if you’re wondering about the earrings, it’s vintage Christian Lacroix.

If you were to steal someone’s look, this Burberry dress would be the perfect one to take. A, I am very big fan of light blue dresses as you might have noticed, B, I think that this style is very flattering and feminine.

DIY - Tote bag from IKEA rug

Tereza Šťastná

I have a great DIY for you. Easy peasy tote bag from IKEA rug. It's done in couple of hours and it's quite cheap so you will manage to make it pre-vacay stress. I discovered this amazing DIY on my favorite blog Honestly WTF, so all the credit goes there. Anyway, it would be a shame not to show you the process and the result of mine. I admit the video was made a year ago so I can say, that the bag has been worn by me ever since.  

And when you're done with your bag, I would love to see the result, so don't forget to tag me on your social media. My IG account @dogandpineapple:) 

You'll need: 

  • IKEA SIGNE rug
  • sewing machine with heavy duty needle and thread
  • leather or faux leather handles 
  • tassles and a string

Mercedes Benz Prague Fashion Week Backstage

Tereza Šťastná

 It has been over a week since the last show at Mercedes Benz Prague Fashion Week closed and it is time to reflect. 

 I was lucky enough to see two shows this season. First one was Miro Sabo and second my beloved Petra Ptáčková to which I even got to help a little and yes, I learned a new sewing trick. 

 Anyway, here I am reporting some sneak peek photographs of what is going on in the backstage, because this year, for the first time in my life, I got in. And let me tell you... Things are chaotic as everyone says. But what I remember from art school, the installations were always being finished the last minute and an hour before art jury came, there was just regular mess of installing. 

 Plus, it happens in the biggest fashion houses as well. Would you like to see? Check The Day Before series on M2M.tv, documentary series following the biggest designer names 24 hours before fashion show.

SS16 Trend - Bomber / Varsity Jacket

Tereza Šťastná

I know you are all probably head-over-heels (and no, I don't mean BJ business to your Sugar Daddy as Iggy Azalea implies) from all the FW16 Fashion Weeks and trust me I am too but little hint! The SS16 season is almost here and we need to adapt our closets to it! Of course in the best responsible and budget friendly way! 

So here I am with new short series covering the spring trends and helping you find source on the world wide web so you can recreate the trend by yourself. 

Today we are going to talk about THE BOMBER JACKET because it's still little bit cold outside. And because it= s very timeless piece to have on your wardrobe. People very often mistake it with VARSITY jacket and until two days ago I was one of them. But I stumbled upon both terms describing what I thought is the same type of a jacket and wondered what is the difference. I've researched and now it's time to pass the wisdom to you, my dear readers.

 I've made one bomber jacket recently and have to say, they are not even that hard to sew. I skipped pockets just because of my very light fabric choice.
