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 was holding onto this outfit for that magical Parisian night out. I ended up dancing on tables at a party under the Alexandre III – the most famous bridge in Paris."
“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.”
