Power dressing has little to do with styling and more with strong personality -which is the key for pulling off whatever style/garment/length/combination one wants to wear. After all, is there anything more powerful and feminist than daring to be yourself?
This is the second outfit from the fashion story I did for The Code magazine, with photographer Ioanna Chatziandreou. Wearing Zara blazer and sock-boots over an Ellery top with ribbons. Top, silver necklace by Sophia Kokosalaki and leather bag by Future Glory, all available at i-D Concept Store. Make up & hair: Konstantina Michopanou

During Paris fashion week, I payed my annual visit at Pierre Hardy headquarters to see the new collection of one of my most adorable accessories designers. Neon details, water-snake, killer heels, graphics and the characteristic cube design of monsieur Hardy, who launches, moreover, his first jewelry collection.
