Style Icon: Zoe Kravitz x

 

Maybe it started with knowing which kitchen you loved in Big Little Lies; for me, it was always Bonnie’s warm welcoming one…and so it started, because although Zoe Kravitz was just playing a part, part of her natural soul was on show too: the piercings, the tatts, an effortless grace. And then there was her singing the Elvis Presley cover of ‘Don’t’ in the final episode of season 1.  I still have it saved to a play list on Spotify…

 

 

Authentic, honest and holding a space in the world that is all her own.

The Olsen twins.  Couldn’t tell you who was who, but combined they’re a force to be reckoned with: Effortless layering, unafraid of volume, an eye for proportion and natural insouciance.

A million miles away from the Kardashians, this is my tribe of cool.

Somewhere Summer..

 

The first snow drops, hints of blue, lighter mornings, the subtle suggestions of a season on the turn.  I was reading yesterday that I would not be able to claim the emerging spring as a fact because there is no such thing as proof, no matter how much we look for it.  Because proof can only exist when there is no doubt, and there is always doubt. Which I rather love, because it means the world is a chaotic, insane place, no matter how much we try to control it.  It also means there’s no proof for my claim that there’s a zeitgeist on the air for summer clothes, but I can still put a finger up to the wind and feel it: Unstructured, loose, layered with soft, softened cotton and colours that carry age, a step away from dynamic and full blooded. A nod to ancient cultures, simplicity of form but attention to proportion and complimentary dimension.

Bring it on.

What is it they say…the worse the country is doing, the more fabric is used? It isn’t working for trousers – cropped and ankle grazers are still winning the day – but coats…there’s a whisper on the air regarding coats, and it’s saying length equals elegance equals appealing….

Projecting x

 

Never have winter coats been so exciting or offered such a visual treat – wear black all season, and you’ll still make a statement. Gone is military uniformity, symmetry and blending and say hello to loose cuts, colour and freedom of expression.

But be prepared for the odd gem that’s breaks the rule…

Because this year, there are no rules…

Wow!

 

Maybe it’s because they don’t have boobs. Maybe it’s because their clothes are more of a uniform with less choice. Maybe it’s because layering is something they’ve always done. But heck, when men get it right, they smoke.

I want some of what they got.

Centre Half: Scarf

 

Friday marks midsummer.  Try telling that to the clouds, the rain, the wind and the temperature.  It’s the pay back and karma for last summer.  But it still hurts.  Maybe that’s why I’m loving the colour, the fluidity and the fun of men wearing silk scarves.

It just brightens the day.

Summer showers x

The weather is still strange here, if the sun shines it’s getting warm, but we can have sudden cold carrying squalls arriving from nowhere. In the evening, no matter how blue the sky has been, the temperature is still dropping away steeply.  It means the transitional wardrobe is in full swing with the similar layers of winter, except they are lighter and looser: cotton instead of wool, silk instead of cotton, bare feet and summer colours…

Oh for the days summer simplicity..
