The jumper-knot

Eeeek, the calendar has spoken. August is no more. Summer is well and truly on it's way out. And as we all come off the last flight home, reality suddenly kicks in.  And just like that, my room is knee deep in knitwear. Ok, fine, that could be just me. I do confess, I have always had a (super) soft spot for Fall. And while the weather has not totally given up on us (yet), my latest Belstaff splurges are vying for some attention.

Hence this new trick to get these back-to-school staples out of the house. I like to call this one the jumper-knot. Think of it as the new 'drape' aka fashion's latest solution to allow us fashion fanatics to show off our recently acquired Winter wonders, without breaking a sweat. Plus this way you will have an extra layer at hand for when the wind turns. Win, win.

A little rusty

I firmly hit the repeat button on the LWD x asymmetrical pump duet last night, the one that first performed on the streets of London. Threw on a boy bomber in a beautiful rusty hue to give the look a bit of depth. So many novel neutrals to try, so little time!

...nor do they undress for them...

 These damn hot nudes won't be getting this gang of new faces a Page 3 feature. Thank god.


The September issue


Right, today we tackle this Fall's trickiest sartorial challenge: head-to-toe knitwear as formulated best at Stella McCartney and the Row (see: the September issue). 

I'm starting this one with a low-commitment entry level (I've yet to determine whether anyone who is not Karlie Kloss can get away with a knitted pant without looking like a frumpy, overgrown toddler. Or a human size sock). 

Which can only mean one thing: it's Zara O' Clock. To be continued...
