As soon as the weather turns in Paris, its park life; from picnicking to long weekends spent sprawled on the grass at the city’s greenest spots, the sun comes out and Parisians go outdoors. Captured by stylist and photographer Margaret Zhang, models Martha Hunt and Bambi Northwood-Blyth take a bike ride through the city’s parks with their weekend essential; bouquets of their favorite flowers.
The palettes are painterly, with sprightly neo-florals giving way to a feminine appeal with a Victorian edge. Bambi and Martha rock the Crystaldust Collection in shades of fuchsia, vintage rose, emerald and blue. This spring, it’s all about self-expression; and how you can play with volumes, proportions and placement for maximum effect. Wear one for subtle sparkle or channel the more daring stack in style trend and layer a mix of this season’s hottest hues to your wrist or upper arms like Martha.
Both girls rock a statement necklace, playing with high necklines; for Bambi, it’s the Glamour Necklace, and for Martha a Couture exclusive. Take it to new lengths with multiple pendants worn together for a layered look. Weave your accessories into your overall style; rock delicate, floral pieces from the Gardenia family with collared shirts and borrowed-from-the-boys chic. Play up an uber feminine appeal by layering tonal shades of your favorite pink or purple.
