Have you ever dreamed of being imprisoned in the ruined house? Can’t escape from the building with thousands of floors and maze of doors. Have a feeling that somebody is hiding around the corner. Just the idea how they look is killing you.
I have that dream quite often, so it was a type of therapy to have a shoot in this building, which we discovered with Karolina. It was dangerous staying there because of holes in the floor and mysterious satanist’s symbols by drug addicts. But you know… in fact, I loved to be there. I felt comfortable, relaxed and it has been one of my favorites photoshoot so far. I think, that specific atmosphere imprinted on photographs.

I didn’t think much about my outfit. This idea came really randomly. I just wanted to create a juxtaposition of items, which are chic, feminine and rock, tomboy on the other side. In my opinion, this idea comes true combining a beret with a leather jacket and an asymmetric crop top with wide-leg trousers.
The piece of clothes which makes me the happiest is the new beret by a Czech label Tonak. Most people think that buying clothes by local labels is enormously expensive in comparison with chain stores, but that isn’t true for everything. For example, this beret costs 15 dollars, and the similar one in my favorite Bershka costs 12 dollars, but the quality is incomparable.
What’s more, a beret isn’t just a lovely French thing. It has been the symbol of the revolution since the 1970s mostly worn by Afro-American activists. Just remember Beyoncé’s ode to the Black Panthers during the Super Bowl performance in February 2017 wearing the black leather beret. However, the beret is also a symbol of modern feminism using by Meghan Markle (or the Duchess of Sussex), Pink, Rihanna and other inspiring women.
So it doesn’t matter if you wanna look only french chic or to express something deeper about you, but it’s the great way to escape from your private prison with this little cute hat.
