The Model and Me: Anannasa spring-summer 2018

Nikki ParkinsonFashion, The Model and Me 5 Comments

Anannasa means pineapple in Hindi, so given my love of of anything pineapple, it’s no wonder that many an Anannasa piece has made it into my wardrobe and into my heart.

The Brisbane-based label is the brainchild of designer Yen Sher Lo. Anannasa clothes are “influenced and inspired by Sher’s many travels, sampling different cultures, meeting amazing people and her appreciation for fabulous interiors as well as diverse cuisines. All of these experiences have enabled her to bring the best to her label”

There’s always a whole lot of fun and summer energy in Anannasa pieces and these two are no exception.

There is nothing like a little metal mixing to make a girl feel more than a little glam. I love the contrast of the golden tones with the silver/pewter in this outfit. 

The rayon pants offer a relaxed elegance thanks to the split, the geometric and striped print and fringing. I’ve sized down. It was a bit of a wiggle on over the hips to the waist but, once in place, this was definitely the right size for me.

I feel quite luxe in the contrasting gold top. The colour is simply gorgeous and the three-quarter sleeves and high-low hem create a flattering line worn back with the pants.

FRANKiE4 Footwear’s ALANA heels in pewter help to bring the metallic mix together for an evening out.
