My journey of the Bochic clutch continues as I step into the East End of Europe, and embrace the beauty of the Russian culture. Coming from a CIS country, and having Russian roots myself, my short time in Moscow made me feel very nostalgic. The fascinating 19th century architecture reminded me of all the grandiosity of the long gone Russian Empire.
The Bochic clutch was quite a challenge this time. How do you style your outfit around such an elegant and fine piece, avoiding the “evening dress” (that you’ve already seen me do, even if paired with espadrilles for a more casual look). Having had just received a new biker jacket from Boda Skins, I took the risk and mixed the ultra chic with ultra cool, with small elements of sensuality and elegance.
For the half an hour that Adlet and I were shooting, I had all the eyes from the people walking by analysing me, thinking “What a crazy person to wear a leather jacket at 25* C”; and insistent vehicle-horns… well, I blame my pretty lace bodysuit for that.
