It’s hot. Summer still seems to be holding on in Zurich. It’s 30C today and it’s the last weekend that Letten, the river by my house, will be open. As far as I’m concerned, after today summer is over. All I’ve been wearing are simple neutral basics… denim cut offs, black stretchy skirts and white t-shirts. It’s my failsafe summer wardrobe. Tomorrow I’m headed to London for two weeks – for fashion week and a couple other projects. I think it will be officially time to embrace autumn dressing.
Wearing: Trove t-shirt, Monki skirt, Super sunglasses, Topshop scarf and sandals.
p.s. the water behind me in these photos is the river I’ve spent the entire summer by.
As soon as I saw Maison Scotch’s aw11 collection I was sold. I love the mix of masculine and feminine details – the tough leather jackets and skin tight skinny jeans mixed with Parisian style peacoats and army parkas. The colour palette is spot on. The pops of red next to rich navys, denim and black are exactly what I want to be wearing this season. Every single look I love and want to wear right now. I swear I could cut and paste my head onto any of the outfits and think it was a something I’ve worn… okay, minus the red beret.
It’s almost enough to get my wishing for colder weather. Almost.
Massive thank you to Rachel for inviting me out and Daniel for being the ultimate chef.
Sunset on the balcony in a hybrid skirt-top-dress… mustard pleats worn with a leather-front/grey-jersey-backed top felt perfectly transitional. I really need to find a black leather jacket to replace this more summery jersey biker style one that I’ve been wearing to death. It’s looking rather ragged and has definitely seen better days. Anyone have any suggestions on where to find one? I’m thinking buttery soft, slightly cropped, fitted… and at a price that wont break the bank.
Wearing: American Apparel large leather clutch, Madewell jacket, Topshop ambush boots (not pictured) and top/skirt stolen from Shini’s closet.
