The fresh freckle faced Vika Falileeva goes into her “Comfort Zone” for Benjamin Kanarek in ELLE Vietnam, November 2014.
All wrapped up in cozy knitwear, with sneakers on and so street sweet. Vika shows us her casual independent flambuoyant style as she struts her stuff wearing the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Acne Studios, Azzedine Alaïa, Yiqing Yin, Vivienne Westwood, Kenzo, Balenciaga, Barbara Bui, Max Mara, Jean Charles de Castelbajac and a whole lot more! Captured in the business and corporate urban environment of the Paris, “La Défense” district.
Getting ready to jog into Fall has never been more fun. Ready, Set, Go!
