I’m just back from 18 days in Myanmar and having worn kaftans, shorts and bikinis for the entire trip I’m not exactly ecstatic to be back in winter woollies – not that I’m not happy to return to my Christopher Kane challenge – I am.
If you’ve not followed my blog/Instagram feed, I decided back in early March to show my support of British designers and wear only Christopher Kane for 30 consecutive days. I was hoping that he would like my posts and he did, every single day.
I got to day 30 easily. I have to be honest, I didn’t actually realise I owned so many of his beautiful pieces but since I have plenty of outfits left over I’ve decided to continue until I run out, probably in about 18 days time.
Anyway, if you ever have a retrospective Christopher and you need to borrow some items from your back catalogue that are missing please feel free to contact me. I won’t ever be sending these away to Vestaire; I hope that my daughter and possibly granddaughter will be enjoying them for centuries to come.
Anyhow, since winter is back and the temperatures are arctic – not to mention I have a severe case of holiday blues I seem to have spent the majority of the week in black. Some of the items I’ve worn this week date back to 2010 – but in my opinion they are still as on trend as much today as when I bought them almost a decade ago.
My favourite pieces from this week are, clockwise from top left:
Menswear Frankenstein Hoodie – SS13
Lace, leather and sweatshirt material dress – Pre Fall 15
Black crepe dress with grey chiffon snakeskin print panels – Pre Fall 14
Black leather jewelled skirt – AW10 with black top – SS15
Snakeskin texture and print dress – Pre Fall 14
Chinese dragon t-shirt – SS 11 and silk chiffon skirt – SS 15
