Ladies and Gents, we are thrilled to introduce our new Tel Aviv Street Style column! Tel Aviv is an up and coming fashion capital with its own say and unique quirky style. Some of the city’s more inspiring fashion stars are just the people walking down the street. Since we love to people watch so much, we decided to start documenting as well!

Come find us out and about in Tel Aviv or on one of our photo shoots and you may become the city’s brightest fashionista!

Who: Sandra, 26, works in Fashion Networking.


Wore: Peplum pale pink dress by Sandro, studded leather jacket by Bec & Bridge, high heels by Zensu, studded leather satchel by Zadig & Voltaire, gold bracelet by Sass & Bide, and oversized stone ring by Israeli designer.


Sandra, who is constantly travelling between Tel Aviv, Paris and Sydney, loves to wear steeper brands but will never buy their products at full price; rather, she has a way of finding all the hottest sales!

Who will be our next Street Style Star??

Hello friends!

We have recently noticed that Vogue magazine, in its fashion spreads, has been noting not only which designer the clothes featured were designed by, but also the models wearing them. This goes to show that the model wearing the clothes matters; She (or he) is no longer just a hanger but a personality that is just as important in making the outfit what it is. Anyone can buy the latest trends, if not by the designer who made them then by the million stores that imitate them. However, not everyone can wear the latest trends and own them and make them all their own. In a world where the most successful pop stars are the kookiest (case in point Lady Gaga and Nikki Minaj) and fashion bloggers become style icons, we are entering an era of personal style where the statement matters more than the clothes.

In that spirit, the current rage in the fashion world is prints: the more the merrier, bold prints mixed together against all rhyme or reason. In this trend all rules go out the window; forget what you’ve been told before about what “clashes”, now it’s up to you to put together whatever you see fit and whatever makes you happy! What an exciting time!! Mixed Prada prints at London fashion week. Photo courtesy of vogue.com.

We decided to dedicate a post to this because we’ve always believed that it’s all about the person wearing the clothes and how they put their outfit together. Vera Watts is a Russian Born fashionista who was raised in Israel, grew up on punk rock, loves cats and has a background in modeling. Ever the punky funky chick, Vera always likes to put together outfits that keep everyone on their toes. This time she chose a totally unique look by putting together prom queen chic with punky accessories. Vera wore a sheer polka dot blouse over a print dress. She accessorized with a plastic and metal necklace, studded belt, and studded leather moccasins. Rony Shapira was raised in the United States, has been putting together outfits for herself and others since the age of three, collects fashion magazines obsessively, and has a background in art which won her nationwide awards and recognition. Always a lady, Rony has always been into the retro feminine look. This time she chose retro 70s, a look that is very big right now, and put a girly twist on the flower children chic. Rony wore a toucan print peplum blouse with heart print cropped pants. She accessorized with a rope and gold necklace, big cocktail rings, silk hair tie, and peep toe booties.
Besides being fashion fanatics, Vera and Rony aspire to open an architecture firm together. What about you? Tell us about yourself and your personal style statement!

Go on and shock everyone with your most plentiful and print-full outfit! Don’t forget to dare and let your personality shine!

Hello friends!

A monochromatic palette is always in fashion! Black white and gray are colors that always look sharp and stylish; the secret is how to make them look unique and new each time.

This photoshoot was taken at (and inspired by) the new extension to Tel Aviv Museum, designed by American architect Preston Scott Cohen. The unique geometric structure of the building gives it complexity both from the outside and in the interior space created.

The building was built out of premade slabs of concrete supported by a premade steel structure, all designed using parametric design softwares. The simplicity of the geometries and the concrete “look” together with the innovative way in which the building and interior spaces were designed inspired us to put together outfits that are simplistic in their color palettes yet interesting and modern.

Vera wore a monochrome stained print tunic with gray studded leggings and a gray vest.

To mix different styles with the grayish tones Vera wore a metal and plastic necklace and a studded belt and black ballerina flats that softened the whole look.

I wore a sequined miniskirt with an off the shoulder lacy white blouse and a black men’s vest.

By wrapping the vest around my waist with a gray obi-like belt, I made the vest very feminine and flattering.

I completed the look with a print cuff, beige strappy wedges and a yellow clutch that gave the outfit a pop of color.

To keep a monochromatic outfit from going dull we like to wear items that add a bit of sparkle, such as sequins and studs which are very big right now!

Have a wonderful and inspiring day!
