If you are wondering what is the “Star Wax” saga, well let me tell you that this is just a joke with my friend Ilaria, founder of Heka Couture and Madame Ilary, the person who created the wax trousers and turban that I am wearing in this post.
As we bought this 6 yards of yellow African print wax fabric, we were deciding what to do with it and we started calling it the “star wax” because of the white stars on the fabric. We imagined to create a pair of trousers, a jacket and a turban, and we called this mini collection the “star wax saga” as a joke!
I was thinking of this joke while writing this post to show the first episode of the saga: these trousers and turban handmade by Ilaria, mixed with vintage pieces and high street.
We were together when I first wore those two pieces: as it was a sunny and warm Sunday afternoon and we were heading to a garage market I decided to dare a mix of African print and stripes (top is from an old Zara collection).
As if it was not enough, I added vintage pieces to the outfit: a lovely vintage doctor bag that I bought during a special vintage event for buyers years ago here in Milan and a Nepalese statement necklace.
Final touch, my Casta and Dolly clogs from Arkivio Vintage!
PS: next episode of the Star Wax saga will be up on the blog soon!!
