Lawyer, PhD Student, and fashion creative Violet Atkinson takes to the streets of Paris wearing her pick of pieces from the sass & bide Fall Spring 19 collection. She talks us through her trip, what she wore, and her trusted styling hacks for travel.
VIOLET X PARIS
“I was en route to Milan to speak at an international conference on intellectual property law and fashion – my PhD subject – and I spent my time before the event in Paris drawing inspiration from the surrounds and preparing my presentation. I was there with one of my closest and dearest friends who is also a fashion creative; we spent our days creating beautiful imagery, running around the city, sitting at café’s and watching the world go by.”
“I am in my twenties and at a stage in life where I have completed my university degree, practiced as a lawyer for some years and have really honed into knowing what I want to do as a career: creative direction and law. I really relate to the mood of wanderlust with this collection as my work revolves so much around beautiful locations and drawing inspiration from my surrounds.”
HER TRAVEL HACKS:
1. “Pack versatile. These FS19 pieces that I took with me were perfect for that reason. During the trip the Think Twice top was styled with the black sequin skirt, black trousers and a skirt."
2. “Pack more blacks and neutrals because you can mix-and-match and also get away with re-wearing something a little more than you would a bold patterned piece.”
3. “Suiting is excellent for travel because you can easily mix-and-match.”
4. “Always pack a couple of hero pieces for those special nights out.”
