When summer is over I almost cry every time when it is time to put away the summer stripes. This year was different. After seeing the white pinstripes on navy at Stella McCartney Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear I (finally) took the stripes with me for fall/winter. Combine them with black or grey for a everyday look or go for stripes-on-stripes if you dare. If you want a more lady-look, do like Stella McCartney and use the stripes with some pointed toe pumps in patent-leather.
There is an option for everyone. Enjoy!
Every time I mention the duffle tomy mother she reminds me of that she used to have the perfect one when she was young and that they called it djubretarac. Djubretarac means garbage truck. I do not know why this beautiful piece got a name like that. Neither do my mother. I like to think it is because the people that was driving the garbage trucks used to wear jackets like this. If that is so, the garbage truck people really must have had a sense of style back then. Garbage truck or not, I am letting myself get inspired. The only jacket I have on my mind at this moment – and I mean the only on – is the duffle. After spotting Cara Delevingne in this classic gray duffle at Saint Laurent Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear, my obsession only got bigger. I am carving the classic duffles. One short in black (like the one above from Zara) and one long in grey.
London is waiting and I am hoping to bring the perfect duffle back home.
