I freely admit I am behind the curve on the whole Game of Thrones phenomena. Forsooth, I only devoured my first box set after New Year..but I’m learning fast. The obessesion has bitten and Season 2 is already underway – of course the joy of coming late to the party? There’s no horrible wait for next Seasons to start (yet)..they’re all lined up like the most delectable dishes at a banquet. But it’s not only the storyline, I’m also smitten by the fashions..and it’s the men’s rather than the ladies: The leather, the studding, the macho winter layering and enormous shaggy shoulders. I lust. A little bit of searching revealed that Helmut Lang’s 2012 Fall Collection was inspired by the series. And how very very appropriate it looks as the Polar Vortex attempts to do it’s worst. I’d bet good gold that that sheepskin coat above would be ready to fight beside any wolf in a storm…
(A touch of the Katniss Everdeens? I wonder what came first?)
And then there’s Chloe Pre-fall 2014, showing that layering can be warm, furry and coloured. Might need a pair of woolly tights though..
For this night..and all nights to come..
