Made To Love Magic Sands

While its inevitable that certain items of clothing are routed to particular seasons, I still find it refreshing and organically workable to integrate winter trends into the current sunshine state. Take Christophe Lemaire's fall collection, which coats the model in a wealth of warmth and comforting coffee tones. While there's no skin on show, there's something light in the mocha drapes that can be accomodated for Summer. Grainy trousers look like business trousers with an earthy harem slouch to them, and the coats waterfall to create the illusion of The Matrix in a bohemian world. Even the black anorak that wonderfully suffocates the model in a crisp shadowed bubble has a parachute air and relief to it. And the sand tone jumpers exude warmth but also look like bronzed polaroids from a summer dessert.

While I might not be sporting crisp business trousers like Christophe's, I feel that my new found relationship with jodhpurs illustrates the way different trends can be hurdled into uncharacteristic seasons.

  10. The Matrix in a bohemian world...

    Yes, I can imagine what you mean. I always think of a Robin Hood sort of style with a modern edge.

    I'm guilty of refusing to let go of my heavy black clothing in the spring and summer.

    Your hair has a beautiful gradient in the light.

  14. I'm confused by the fact I have never seen your blog before. Once I made the fatal error of wearing jodhpurs with long black leather boots and I resembled a jockey. It was worth every painful comment I received. x
