Bright Star Awake Forever In A Sweet Unrest

Many of you will know that I've injected an air of bohemia into my Spring wardrobe. I love the 'effortless appeal' and casual class that can come from this, but I've always been one that likes to put thought and even a theme behind my outfit choices. Thankfully a 'Bright Star' showed me the 'mid way' path and route between clothing execution and effortless indie admiration. The film with the starry eyed name is a visually intoxicating vintage romance, with fields foamed in lavender and landscapes that melt into watercolour. The men in the film are dressed in a perfect mix of tailoring and richly romanticised colours and textures. While the likes of Gareth Pugh are princes of androgyny in darker Winter designs, 'Bright Star' showcased a bohemian Spring androgyny; albeit subtle and possibly a figment of my imagination, but one that I admired none the less. Lou Daulton is a designer that encapsulates this romantic spark in my opinion. I love the purple cape that melts and drapes around the model in a beautifully intimate manner, and the jumpers have intricate shreds and cuts in them as if they'd fallen into nettles that electric shocked the tops into life. The boots have a heavy military stamp to them, but are tamed by cable knit jumpers and quirky hunting style trousers that could almost pass as masculine leggings. I cant wait for the Sunday market now to find some tattered gems that can recreate this inspired lookbook!

  4. I feel exactly the same way-I'm jealous of how others seem to just throw things on and still turn heads (what a cliche!) but i always have to set out outfits the night before!

  7. we'll either find a film of lavender, or buy a bunch from a garden center to scatter in your field. or um, we can have a beautiful evening outdoors and then use paint to spray some purple onto the photos. whatever the case, our summer will be a hazy purple bliss! i'll bring the 'bright star' film tonight! x
