I was thrilled to be invited for an interview at the miinto towers. I love speaking about what I do as a blogger and encourage others (You, yes You) to kick off their own style outlets. This is how my interviewer, the lovely Faye Craig, started her article:
“Pret-a-Reporter explores Edita’s world of fashion, inviting us into her eclectic closet with an array of gorgeous photography and some even more so beautiful outfits. Ms. Lozovska also heralds from Lithuania, and currently works as a business journalist so it is no question her wardrobe brings a contemporary mix of styles from a variety of different climes and walks of life. On the Pret-a-Reporter journey we see through her eyes, absorbing her experiments, musings and thoughts. In short, Pret-a-Reporter simply inspires us. We were therefore extremely lucky to meet and have Edita at miinto HQ for an exclusive photoshoot and interview.”
Faye – it was I who was the lucky one to collaborate with miinto. You can read the entire interview here.
Here are three outfits which I styled for the miinto shoot.
1. Business background
Necklace: From My Bedouin Jewellery Collection, Leather Cuff: Skadi, Skirt: Gianfranco Ferré, Jacket: Christian Dior, Silk Top: Katharine Hamnett, Sandals: Walter Steiger
T’is true – my professional background is of the technical, analytical variety. It only makes sense for me own a classic black pencil skirt, an item which easily can convert into boring business lady in an eyeblink. Thankfully, I own a few pieces from Skadi, an innovative jewellery brand which can add a touch mystery to absolutely any attire.
Allow me to elaborate. The lace leather designs send off deliciously mixed signals: is she trying to be gothic? Is it more of a fetish accessory? Is that her interpretation of femininity? You get it – it makes people talk, talk, talk simply because the pieces are a beautiful combination of all of the above. Skadi’s cuff works wonderfully complimenting my favourite onyx and silver choker, allowing the silk top, beige jacket and pencil skirt to take a breather and work as stage curtains, not the actors of the play.
2. Dark matters
Shirt: Calvin Klein, Earrings and Necklace: Skadi, Leather Trousers: Temperley
Yet another outfit where Skadi’s lace-like pieces steal the limelight. I’d like to draw your attention to how effortlessly this look has been taken from basic to gothic with a lick of purple lipstick and the leather detailing.
3. Vintage brocade
The dress which needs little more. Florals, brocade, glitter, a flapper motif – all in one. It was sewn by my grandmother, given to my mother and then passed on to me. No maybes, ifs or buts. It stands alone.
I’d like to give a special shout out to Rory Gullan, the eagle eye behind the lens at miinto.
