Zara - Ballet Studio Collection

Dance clothes. Or just imagining you're dancing in clothes. I was recently inspired by a book about fashion designers and opera, how designers interpreted the music and the drama into wearable art. It touched my soul and made me want to go the opera soon. Many of us would secretly like to be ballerinas (I even went to a dance class last year and loved being at the barre) and the recent ballet aesthetic trend gives wannabe dancers the chance to dress like one, but luckily in an off-duty way so we don't have to wander the streets in a tutu. Zara's latest studio collection is all about deconstruction and overlaying, not necessarily pink and pretty (thank God). This is off-duty ballet wear with an edge. I love the floaty dressed with asymmetric hemlines, the trench coats and the embroidered ballerina tops with trailing threads. I am very drawn to the over-the-knee boots and the satin ballerinas with embroidery. Especially the ballet shoes. Who cares if they look totally impractical? I will wear them in the house, using my bannister as a ballet barre and practising my plies on the stairs.
Maybe this is because I never had ballet lessons as a child. Well, it's never to late to start.
