If Rachel Comey and I met we’d be BFs.  Seriously.

Her latest AW14 Collection is full of  laid back loucheness that manages to sing of both ease and statement.

Neoprene? No. Let’s beautifully quilt everything that moves.

The masculine elements lured away, replaced by feminine curves.

(NB: Wearing brogues without socks is an art form..get it wrong and an unfortunate sucking sound echoes with you down the street frightening small furry animals….just saying)

The colours..

The coat..

It takes nerve to be so every day, but this Collection packs a punch and leaves a powerful sense of self.

Laters, Kate x

    I didn’t sleep much last night and that first Teddy Bear Coat is calling to me. The second is the quilted ensemble — an early day at work and I need a nap before I start…Some fantastic items. XO

    ugh…I’m too old to appreciate ANYTHING {{shiver}} like a blocky denim dress and coat. Any woman over 20 would look like a Baptist missionary. And those pant lengths? Seriously? Never going to happen for me. Question. Should I shut up when I see things I really dislike? Or should I join the conversation and be a wet blanket? No offense intended to this designer or you. Obviously there’s something there, right? I feel like a block head! Can’t SEE it!

      Hehe..I say give it six months and all will be clear..but also, what the hell if it isn’t? t’would make life faaaar too boring. It’s refreshing to hear other views, just as it’s important to push the boundaries..and age has nothing to do with it! xxx

    Love the comfort and elegance although that would look awful on my 5ft tall and curvy frame but still I would love to have the stripey socks and pumps in the first pic and the plaid red coat (so many possibilities with this one !!!) xo
