One could chit chat about oversized volumes, clashing textures, or contrasting hues. But that would be old hat. So instead, this shall be an ode to Topshop. We were on a break you see for a while seeing as it seemed to have set its sights on dressing the cool kids of East-London in 90s-infused, festival-worthy, colour-binging ready-to-wear. Which I used to swear by, but sort of grew out of when I realised I just looked like a cookie-cutter. Not that I ooze originality today (case in point: baggy leather, everyone is at it!) .. but at least I stopped looking like a 15-something teenage clone. Which is fine for when you are trying to navigate your way through those traumatic high-school years, but expires as soon as you you no longer qualify for the 10% student discount. This story has a happy ending, I promise. We fell back in love, and I have been embracing its many offspring ever since. And to celebrate our newfound love, here’s a family portrait: me with cocoon coat and waffle knit. I should introduce you, you would definitely get along too! C’est beau l’amour..

I’m wearing a Topshop cocoon coat (in a size 10) , tapered leather trousers by Mango, a LNA clothing slouchy tee under a Topshop waffle knit (or here) and Mango wedges. The earrings are House of Waris at MyTheresa.
