I don't believe in queues, especially not for clothing. How I didn't pick up on Britain's favourite pastime while living in Scotland is beyond me. With a cup of tea (herbal, not black) in my hand I clicked the white and black leather Isabel Marant pour H&M trousers home in the evening of the launch day without participating in the solidarity camp on Friedrichstraße thank you very much. Since I also don't believe in leather trousers without belt loops that was the practical detail that sealed the deal. After several wears leather leggings end up at my ankles and I'd prefer to keep my cheeks covered in this weather but you wouldn't imagine how difficult it is to find decent leather trousers with belt loops.
I have already raved on about Gaudeli's Vintage, my favourite vintage store in Berlin and now you can see the coat and blazer from her store in all their glorious action. She sources all her impeccable pieces from Italy and yesterday we had a long chat over chocolate cake about her and her store's history. Get ready for an in-depth interview and photos next week!
I can't hark on enough about how much I love winter layering, especially when there are two patterns involved as well as a texture mix of velvet, leather and handwoven fabrics from Firenze. I'm braving the onset of winter's greyness with some eff you blues and whites.
I am wearing a vintage blazer and coat, a Gina Tricot jumper, a Glamourai necklace, Isabel Marant pour H&M leather trousers and Thakoon boots.
P.S. See you in Paris tomorrow!
