Sustainable Luxury: Marina Vaptzarova

A collaboration with a sustainable brand Marina Vaptzarova during early November. In this post I am featuring accessories and jewelleries from the brand itself and clothes from Drichu to complement the natural textures. In a time of living up to fast-paced lifestyles and busy schedules, it is important to take time to slow down. This applies to our daily lifestyle habits and objects that surround us. I have experienced the positive energy when surrounding oneself with objects and accessories that are slowly made. While giving careful attention to details. 

YAK WOOL scarf, handwoven in Nepal. The immensely soft hairs are gently brushed, just before they shed naturally, from the belly of the Himalayan Yak found in the high plateaus between Nepal and Tibet. 

The handwoven yak wool also covers the NUMA-LA journal, creating a cosy and elegant aesthetic that sits beside Marina's innovative vegetable leather - made from plant fibers also found in Nepal.

The journal is adorned with a gold plated clasp, handcrafted in Kathmandu by renowned goldsmiths, preserving traditions from weaving, paper making, and metalwork. All assembled by craftsmen in Nepal.

THE TSATSALUNG ARTISTS sketch book  is designed to inspire what will be created in it's inner pages. Wrapped in a hand-spun cotton plaited cord to hold these creations safe.

The purse I am holding borrows a pattern from the Hmong, a tribe living in the Golden Triangle. This pattern is inspired by the HMONG BATIK, silkscreen printed on linen that wraps around the nettle weave base of the purse. And throughout this connection and inspiration from different parts of the world, the Hmong tribe meets a Himalayan tribe to create a finished product by Kathmandu's craftsmanship.

 DULLA Loafers 

ALDO Watch

It is always a pleasure to work with the proficient shoe designer, Dulla 
and this time he has come up with a versatile range of footwear for the 
winter '17 collection. And for this non-black outfit I stepped into a smart, 
gradient tan loafers. It's the perfect style of shoes for those who want to dress up a little but still want to achieve the laid-back look. 
It is comfortable yet chic. This is also available in men's section with a slightly minimal finish. 

Loafers have been around for a long long time but it has been brought back on the streets inclusive of contemporary elements by the designers, making it the "must-have" shoe. Well the one I am wearing falls more towards- preppy and classic style of loafers. I constructed my outfit keeping the shoe as my base. I tried my best to not make it an all black outfit, hence I paired my favourite blue high-waisted mum jeans with a cozy white turtleneck and layered a long trench coat to keep me warm which also compliments the tan loafers.

DULLA Boots & Bag GINGER Sweater Dress 

It's December! I had shot this look couple of weeks back but finally got the chance to post it. This being my first knee high boots I was very excited to style it. So I decided to go for a relaxed fit sweater dress in warm neutral tone that I bought last winter. I love the loose feel of the dress pairing it up with the rather chic looking knee high boots by Dulla. These boots are a great addition to my winter collection. It's suede, something I was always hesitant on wearing but it's actually very easy to maintain, " just use a clean brush or sponge and wipe it in one direction, Ahmed Dulla".

It's officially fall... and I couldn't be more happier than this. 
Neutrals and warm tones is what we instantly are drawn towards during the cooler months. This lush beige trench by Teyang is a great edition to any fall wardrobe. With it's slight bat wing style sleeves it gives the wearer enough room for chunky knit wears. I have gone for a minimal and relaxed 80s vibe where I paired my classic white button down shirt with a high waisted mom jeans and dark brown oxfords.
