Το ξυπνητήρι το βάζω συνήθως στις 7.27 , για να “παίξω” μαζί του το snooze game περίπου 20 λεπτά και, εν τέλει, να σηκωθώ οκτώ παρά πέντε. Και αυτό, με μία εμφανή πλην όμως χαριτωμένη δυσκολία. Read more >>>

Episode 28# Lady in Black

Ο φύλακας-άγγελος του στυλ εχει τη δική του “μαύρη” ιστορία και εγώ  αφού “σκόνταψα” πάνω στην  φράση που την περιγράφει καλύτερα, “μου πήρε 40 χρόνια για να ανακαλύψω πως ο βασιλιάς των χρωμάτων είναι το μαύρο”–Auguste Renoir, Γάλλος ζωγράφος ιμπρεσιονιστής, σκέφτηκα να γράψω ένα σενάριο μόδας και ομορφιάς με πρωταγωνίστρια την Alina Preiss. Ένα γλυκύτατο κορίτσι, έναν υπέροχο άνθρωπο με στυλ και ένα κορυφαίο μοντέλο από το Μόναχο.
Εξάλλου, αυτός ο φύλακας-άγγελος είναι ανεξαντλητα δημιουργικός, μονίμως επίκαιρος και ασυναγώνιστα ευέλικτος.
Εύστοχος, γοητευτικά σοβαρός και καθόλα αποτελεσματικός. Φωτεινός -“φωτίζει” ύπουλα το στυλ σου-παρά σκοτεινός.
Μην ξεχνάς πως σε κάθε look σου, μπορείς να “διαβάσεις” αυτό που θες. Το μαύρο είναι ιδανικό,ακριβώς, γι’αυτό.
Αγαπημένα εγχειρήματα, τα βραδινά.
Αυτά που σε απασχολούν ολίγον περισσότερο. Αυτά που κουβαλάνε, πάντοτε στωικά, το προσωπικό στοιχείο για να το ζευγαρώσουν με κάτι μυστυριώδες black.
Από τότε που θυμάμαι τον εαυτό μου, ένιωθα δέος απέναντι στο little black dress. Από τότε που θυμάμαι τον εαυτό μου, ήθελα να το “αντιμετωπίσω” αλλιώς.
Και φέτος, που η ατμόσφαιρα υπαγορεύει επιθετικά μίνιμαλ πινελιές και νέες αναγνώσεις, θέλω να σου μιλήσω για τέσσερις νέες περιπτώσεις. Για τέσσερα φορέματα με απίστευτα ευέλικτο design που ταιριάζουν σε κάθε σιλουέτα, “βουτάνε” μέσα στις χρωματικές διακυμάνσεις της bitter σοκολάτας, κατά τόπους ή συνολικά και σε προκαλούν να δημιουργήσεις ένα εύκολα ξεχωριστό στυλ.
Η συνταγή είναι η κίνηση. To “αλάτι”, η αυτοπεποίθη. Η έμφαση στην λεπτομέρεια, η στρατηγική που κάνει τη διαφορά.

Σσσσσσσσ…..Η προβολή ξεκινά. Δες το νέο my style film!

Τα do’s #my style study

  • Επέλεξε ένα άνετο design που σε προδιαθέτει να σταθείς και να περπατήσεις θηλυκά.
  • Τόλμησε το mid length μήκος με ψηλοτάκουνες γόβες και φώτισε το ντεκολτέ με εντυπωσιακά θεατρικού ύφους αξεσουάρ. Extra like σε κολιέ και σκουλαρίκια.
  • Το μακρυμάνικο φόρεμα είναι must στην ντουλάπα σου εξαιτίας του vintage χαρακτήρα του.
  • Η τονισμένη μέση με ήπιο τρόπο, όπως με μια υφασμάτινη μονόχρωμη κορδέλα, χαρίζει καμπύλες και θηλυκότητα.
  • Το επιμελώς ατημέλητο ύφος του χτενίσματος προσθέτει άφθονο σεξαπίλ στο look.
  • Το βαθύ ντεκολτέ δίνει ρετρό αξία στο τελικό αποτέλεσμα. Δοκίμασέ το.
  • Το χρώμα (μπλέ ή κόκκινο), όπου χρειάζεται, δημιουργεί “σκοτεινές” αντιθέσεις που ευνοούν την άψογη εμφάνιση.

Το μυστικό #my style precious gifts
Κι όμως, όλη αυτή η ιστορία μπορεί να χωρέσει σε μια πινελιά. Σε πρπσκαλώ να “φορέσουμε” μαζί την αίσθηση του νέου επεισοδίου μόνο με μια κίνηση για μια ενδιαφέρουσα κινηματογραφική διάσταση στις καθημερινές στυλιστικές συναλλαγές. Αν η πρωταγωνίστρια του style video ήταν βερνίκι, θα ήταν το ακαταμάχητο Essie Licorice.

Design: Maria Sinanoglou

Δυναμικό και σοφιστικέ ξεχωρίζει από το πλήθος χωρίς να υπερβάλλει. Στην διεθνή ατζέντα της μόδας, το μαύρο είναι το νέο κόκκινο και όποια το θέλει στο νεσεσέρ και τα ακροδάχτυλά της μπορεί να το διεκδικήσει από σήμερα.

Episode 26# 4 dresses 4 Alice

Film concept, production & styling/ Annousa Mela.
Directors
/ Vangelis Tolias & Giannis Pallis

All dresses by mystyleforecast.con Creativewear collection. Sneakers by Diesel. Belts by H&M. Necklace and rings, Accessorize. Handmade bracelets by mystyleforecast.com Creative accessories.


There is no way not to be inspired by anything that has left its imprint in the database of my imagination. That’s exactly what happened here. Anything dreamy that constantly chase me is “cohabiting” with anything cool that I really love in a film that narrates you the story of romance in the city. Here’s my Alice in Wonderland and her name is Alina Preiss! When the urban landscape receives massive “attacks” of carefree girlish mood the result can only be special and dynamic. And, since there are many things that I want to tell you I just decided to create my quick Friday list with  all the “should”, “maybe”, “hmmmm”, “I’ll think about”, “I want it now” (how I love it! ), with “super” and many more that come with my styling process.

See, share, get inspired and write your own …

1. Pink color becomes cooler when is worn with contradictory style accessories.

2. All the mid-length creations add femininity to any look and confirm your fashion knowledge.

3. I am not afraid, nor will ever fear a neon chic element in my looks.

4. The sneakers highlight dresses as a pair of pumps highlight a baggy jean.

5. The “naively” unkempt hairstyle is a basic requirement of a completely fresh attitude.

6. Try shimmering balm on your lips and wear perfume that matches 100% with the style you choose every day.

7. I used to have second thoughts for the “overdose” of rings. Now I love it. If you want to put only one, it’s fine. Once again you have a neo-punk element in your appearance.

These are my after midnight notes of my new style episode. Stay tuned because the storytelling goes on … Ok, it’s been over 3.15, time to got to bed!

My Whiteground for Victoria Kyriakides blogger project

Creative Director/Styling: Annousa Mela, Directors/Editing: Vangelis Tolias and Giannis Pallis, Assistant Director: Paris Antonakis, Hair/Make up: George Maragoudakis

Once upon a time there was the blogosphere, the Victoria Kyriakides fashion house and its favorite bloggers.

In those four exclusively, me, Nelly Skoufatoglou, Joanna Tsigarida and Elena Pakou asked to create their own visuals for the 2013 preview bridal collection. Those immediately responded and created a custom bridal material with a new online approach of the fantastic classic history of the bridal dress.

The protagonist of my film walks through the city. She is happy.  She smiles and she definitely stands out from the crowd.  She has the fashion habit of mixing the “materials” of her closet. All those have unique flavors, colors and forms that travel in time combining yesterday’s must haves with anything new. Her style…creatively anarchic. Sensitive and expressive as the “scent” of a cool “I do”. She is not afraid. She dares. She is not exaggerating. She balances. And she enjoys playing. With her soul. With her heart. Put your jumper over your sophisticated wings. The jockey hat with your the gown skirt you love. Your severe jacket with the unique mid length creation that fascinates you. Make a collage of yourself on your dress and live that moment forever. I want to share with you my new creation, my “Stand out of the crowd” bridal filming tetralogy.

 From the left: Me with my VK London bridal blazer, Nelly with the VK Manhattan dress, Ioanna with the VK Woodstock dress and Elena with the VK Paris dress.

Backstage creative action!

My favorite vintage magician hat and other vintage items used from the mystyleforecast collection were used for the styling.

And when the film is completed, the bloggers team photo is getting ready … Come with me to an urban walk  in Monastiraki!

Remember…Fashion is fun!

Many times my emotional state sees its projection onto a look. When YOU ARE LOOKING FOR something, anything, someone, anyone, the movement of the body is given. Nervous, unspecified, repetitive, often erotic, full of energy, without second thoughts, almost the most revealing indication of your character. This full of energy action drives me to new inspirations apart from the respective frames of my mind. The IMAGINATION gives me the right of the exposure and this makes me even more creative. I dress my model with “materials” that you already have in your wardrobe by adding some unpredictable “ingredients” that you think of but you rarely dare to use them, that make the flavor of the final fashion “recipe” acceptable but MYSTERIOUSLY NEW. The controlled digital prints function as a canvas on the body creating a sophisticated style DNA that does not surprise or worse provoke with their eccentric dynamics. It’s the rest environment that takes care of it through a stylistic coolness equivalent of my meditation when I’m looking for something that usually at the end is never found.

my secret
When I want to try something that you easily would say even extreme, I always fit it in my favorite black background. The security that offers me the “darkness” of the outfit makes me feel confident for the chosen item that stands out.

my fashion movie star
The 21-year old Ilse Van Langevelt from Holland loves minted green color, envisions to make the shooting campaign for her fave label See by Chloe, notes on my notebook that her coolest fashion item is her leather oxford shoes and would love to do the television advertising for fragrance DKNY Delicious Green Apple. She hates the excess quantity of a 100% transparent, almost sticky lip gloss on her lips, adores vintage clothing and believes that every model that respect herself should certainly have a black leather bike jacket in her wardrobe. The most expensive item in her closet is a pair of boots and her favorite movie is “La Vita e Bella”. “The optimistic approach gives you strength to move forward,” she says to me explaining her film choice, just a few seconds before the first take.

black poetry

Film concept, production & styling/ Annousa Mela. Director/ Vassilis Michail.

Outfits by Christina Strafti FW 2012 Collection. Sandals by Charlotte Olympia. Socks by Topshop.

When words seem and sometimes are unnecessary, pictures, in my case moving images, take control. Ok, to be completely honest and accurate I love the black but not always. I love it because it illuminates in a mysterious dark way the silhouette. I hate it too because it is way too easy to manage. The idea, no I lied, the first thought for this film was to be inspired by some words that were stacked several years ago in my mind. In one of my trips in the world (travel = breathe, I don’t know how to live differentely), more specifically in Thailand in 2006, a native, in his attempt to convince me to buy without second thoughts a bronze necklace, recruited all his creativity in a phrase SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT. For what I already have, for all that I will have, for all I ever wanted, for all those that I will want to. Really? Oh yes. The outfits that I decided to put in my protagonist SU Min “function” exactly that way. The model on stage with me behind the camera are trying to record different readings of the same BLACK STYLE STORY. I would like you to taste the concept of this film as it lies in the diversity of the forms, the independence of the design, the charming insidious power of textures. The realm of style is hidden at the DETAILS. That’s where my favorite fashion mission is described by four words …STAND OUT OF THE CROWD.

my little secrets
I emphasize to the “shoe project” that complements my dark appearance investing in strategic styling moves that release a creative energy (sandals + socks, pattern + pattern) while I persistently refuse to wear a total black outfit with opaque black tights.
