Geometry on the run


Why be boring and wear your own clothes when your imported friend is over visiting all the way from the land down under, with a wardrobe (in the form of three giant suitcases) packed chock-a-block full of accoutrements that you suddenly realise you should have snatched up when they first hit the rack? Especially in light of fashion's newfound love for the checkered stuff. You don't have to answer that. Rather, let's mourn this masterpiece of a coat together. 

I'm not normally one to commit all of my earnings to high-end goods that I can't afford without going hungry, so it always comes as a refreshing surprise when high-street mavens give birth to biological offspring - the kind that has not been conceived by IVF using, say, a (stolen) Philo egg, or a Kenzo gene or two.  As much as we all end-up guiltily eyeing up those very test-tube babies in our local Zara, you must admit there is nothing more exhilarating than finding something unique on the high-street.

And Unique this coat most definitely is (pun not - ok fine, pun fully intended). Compelling outerwear just doesn't get much better than this. Oh why did I not get this geometric beauty when I had the chance? The only thing that softens the pain is the pixelated proof of things to come. Oh Kate, you really know how to make the girl-on-a-budget's heart sing. 

I'm off to set up an eBay alert. Bye. 

I'm wearing a Topshop Unique coat, Acne knit (men's), COS breton tee and Zara boyfriend jeans. The buckle boots are Elin Kling for Guess by Marciano and my pouch is Clare Vivier for Moda Operandi. The beanie is COS.

  34. The giant zippers on the pockets give the coat just a little something something don't you think?

  35. Hi Camille,

    just came about this post via Pinterest. Gosh I am now desperately in love with this coat too!!!
    Maybe we can send the pictures to Arcadia/Topshop and have it cloned in their laboratory?

    Great post too...will check out the rest of your blog now. Looks great so far ;)

  37. Haha, great write up!
    LOVE the print of the coat in combination with the striped top and the not so simple bag and shoes.
    I feel like the tears of this jeans almost function as a print on their own in this look!

  43. Sorry, but your blog was new to me, till today! I really love your simple but very chic and not to much style... does it make sense to you?? I bet it does.
