LOOKing goodTuesday, May 1 2012
What happens when you get invited to the A/W press night for a high end, sportswear-meets-urban-chic label in the middle of April? Answer: you spend the evening thinking up dodgy schemes to try and casually flee the cocktail-infused event with the stunning goose feather jacket and fur hood that you have managed to slip into without too many people noticing. After all, I really wouldn’t look that out of place given the schizophrenic weather we have been enjoying of late.
If you ever did hear me diss the down jacket, I take it all back. An evening in the presence of LOOK‘s meticuloulsy feminine – and intrinsically warm – garnments got me questionning my whole Winter sartorial stance. Why settle for stylish over cosy (or vis versa) when in fact the two work just as well hand in hand. Besides this uncanny revelation, I discovered a beautiful collection whose guiding principal is the combination of traditional craftmanship with the nobleness of fabric. Drawing its inspiration from natural elements like rock and water, the mineral hues of the clothes are brought to life by the colours of the brand’s Mondrian-like logo. A lovely surprise for a girl like me who is normally more into her summerwear.
Never did manage to make that swift exit though. Only consolation is that the sun has finally come out to play. Next time my friends, next time.
La mission « fuite à l’anglaise » a malheureusement échoué. Seul lot de consolation : le soleil a enfin décidé de montrer le bout de son nez. Pourvu que ca dure.
