There are certain accessories that will never go out of fashion and small bandanas are certainly one of them. A bit retro, pin up and rebellious – they add that extra punch to a look, whether you keep it chic or playful.
Italian fashion is known for their love for colour and accessories, therefore there was no wonder that luxury fashion outlet Fidenza Village teamed up with 5 worldwide known illustrators to produce 5 exclusive limited edition bandana in tribute to futurist artist Depero. Very graphic and vibrant designs printed on solid, high quality italian cotton can finish any look and add that juicy touch to any fresh spring look.
My favourite bandana was done by Roman Muradov and here is how I styled it in 3 ways compromising current high street trends.
LOOK 1 – BANDANA AS HEADBAND
The classic bandana on a head always reminds me of 50’s pin up girls and I think they just look plain girly sexy and fun.
LOOK 2 – BANDANA ON WRIST
These bandanas are so colorful and beautiful, that I thought they could look amazing as a bracelet on its own. The geometric shapes made it look like piece of art and it brings a lot of attention to your handbag when you hold it as well – so make sure your bandana matches a bag you carry.
LOOK 3 – BANDANA ON NECK
Final classic look that was very trendy last year. This is perfect for an formal or office meeting.

This post will be slightly different – and it will be the first step to the new direction of my blog, where I will start sharing thoughts and experience. This is an urge driven by my soul – I feel that by being honest about my past and journey I could help and uplift. I hope that my reflection can be universal, but I have a special intention to inspire creatives and artists – those, who often need the support the most on the path, that often is full of road blocks. I am still on mine – and I constantly follow my heart – and by surrounding myself with like-minded creative tribe I receive energy that helps me keep moving forward as well.
So let’s get to the major theme of this post…
Highlights of 2015 for Adriana Deco
- winning a competition and creating illustrations for H&M Oxford Circus
- I became a head graphic designer at Lulu Guinness
- recording my EP ‘Destiny’, completing Urban Development course
- filming two professional music videos with top notch film makers
- discovering new passion – live fashion illustration – leading to top clients like Tod’s, Moet Hennessy, H&M (Vogue Fashion Night Out), Mahiki Club
- starting this blog and eventful London Fashion Weeks
- I was hesitant about X Factor, but I decided to include it as a bullet point – it’s a twisted and unfair story, but making it to the Wembley was still an achievement – and greater achievement was overcoming the pain and getting back on track
- meeting a lot of supportive people, who shared their talent, wisdom or advice with me.
It is quite a long list and for each experience I am extremely grateful; however, my most beautiful realization is that my music videos – projects that come truly from my soul – are the ones I am mostly proud of. Even though I haven’t received any applause, exposure or financial rewards (yet! 😉 – these are the projects that make me feel most connected to my soul purpose.
I can’t wait until official campaign of my Destiny project starts – it is more than an EP – it is a personal story, where my music and visuals finally create together a vision. To bring it all together to this point the roller coaster of emotions definitely paid off.
Wishing you all a prosperous, inspiring, fulfilling year – full of positivity and strength to create your DESTINY in 2016!

I have been a Londoner for last 3 years but only recently moved to the West side of London. Once the sun started to come out it encouraged me to explore more of my neighbourhood. I must admit I am falling in love with Notting Hill area every day – after living 3 years in Highbury & Islington.
This is my very first look that I combined with the elegant white architecture of Paddington streets. I am wearing black and white to bring out the boldness of the architecture.
All the photographers were taken by a rising street style photography talent Zac Mahrouch – watch out for him, he is a real pleasure to work with and has a great eye and skills for very young age! http://www.zacmahrouchephoto.co.uk/
It is also a real chance for me to try my best in styling. I am not a professional stylist, this is something I have been doing for my own pleasure and passion – therefore it is always a great test for me to see what feedback I get from Sommerset House visitors. And it was a truly great one! I had gained a great interest and feedback this year on my looks and encouraged by positive words I decided to create this blog.
The customized bow made by Anna Kostina was a true sensation. It has been my signature headpiece I have been wearing on my gigs and performances and I was sure it would gain excellent exposure at LFW – who doesn’t love the quirky there?
I combined my pop bow with truly pop T-shirt / dress from SS15 Moschino – I thought the pop culture of big bow and striking M (as a symbol of McDonald’s) would work together great as a playful, pop arty match.
In addition that I wore a faux fur from Bershka (Black & White always works great with red) and my secret weapon which was coresspondance to Moschino and the bow – golden camera bag from Accessorize (true bargain I must admit!). The whole look was completed by the elegant touch of my Guess stilettos I got in NYC.
This look made me feel bold, quirky and extravagant – all that I love most about fashion.
