The Story Of Zara Prassinot

Wednesday, May 11 2016 By: Roos van Rij


“My wild and free soul unsettled some and unwedged others”

 

Meet fille folle Zara Prassinot, French muse, model and actress. She’s totally unpredictable. An adventure. She can be whoever she likes to be. Like art. A parisienne at heart. Fragile, heartbreakingly beautiful and untouchable... All at once. An effortless bohemian style and a playful smile. She’s a challenge... you easily accept.

 

Her mind is loose … 

 

And she makes you lose yours.

Zara is wearing our SS/2016 'FAKE CLUB' Collection. Available here:
