That Dress.

Filed under: Uncategorized — blindcopy @ 9:48 am

Ever since I saw that lady with the helmet-like hairstyle wearing The Dress I dreamed of having a similar one. No, actually I wanted the exact same dress! But neither the woman’s name nor the dress’ designer, were mentioned, when I saw the picture first (unfortunately, I forgot where I saw it first).

It took me quite a while to find out, who she is and what she wore.

She: is Lotta Volkova, artist, designer, and stylist originally from Russia, who studied art and fashion at Central Saint Martins, London.

The Dress: is Balenciaga.

Before I go on raving about Lotta and her amazing dress in particular and style in general (and her equally amazing own label), let me tell you: I’ve seen The Dress on the weekend in real life. And it’s all I can think of since the moment I touched it (it feels like a costume from a 1960s science fiction movie – not that I knew how costumes from 1960s movies felt like. But you get the point. Synthetic. Anyway. I wouldn’t hold The Dress too close to a lighter or a lit candle. It might go “puff” and disappear). I also saw an amazing pair of shoes – but I can get over the shoes, if I can only have that dress. I don’t know how, but I must have it.

I never thought anyone could pull those Prada fisher boots from Fall 2009 collection off. The way she wears them – just wow, no?

The two different yellows of her pants and socks – genius!

Oh, I always wanted a piece from that Prada collection!

Lotta Volkova also has her own label. I found these designs from 2009 on her blog. I love them (especially that I’m into harnesses lately).




  1. Oh my God I can really believe your obsession Kazuko… But I like the way she wears the dress even more than the dress itself: I love the bracelet and the acid yellow nail polish… But she’s just a style genious, seeing also the other pics, I agree with you.

    Oh and her creations are great! I really like them, especially the black T-shirt!

    a kiss

  4. A stylist with her own label who dares to wear yellow + black and knows how to make harnesses… Genius! Great style & loads of inspiration.
