Everything Is Illuminated

Hey everyone. So I'm back from 'Secret Garden Party', with a rainbow of memories from the festival that has left me wonderfully dazed and enchanted. Polaroids will come in the week following, but to summarise it was a magical 'lost kingdom' around a pirate ship party lake. Carnivals were waiting to be found along tea-light woodland paths, acrobats were dancing above us in psychadelic tents, and there was even the odd and elusive misty igloo venue that kept us cool in the stunning heat of the weekend. 'Fashion Statement' was as ever a staple sentence in my diction though, and the festival served as an introduction to my latest addiction. While I'm always inspired by trends, themes and designers every season, it's very rare that I come across a particular item from a collection that I clamp down as a 'MUST HAVE'. But the Burberry sheepskin coats have made me look at the sheep in my field like a hungry fantastic mr fox! I adore the epic collar that becomes soft armor, and clashing with the sticky indulgent black leather creates this runway utopia of an urban city warrior. To say I love Burberry's recent reinvention would be an understatement! And while my own sheepskin coat is merely of the vintage pilot variety, I still feel empowered by its heavy texture that takes the fur of the folk surroundings and presents an industrial city persona.

  21. Once again you manage to create a special, unique look. The sheepskin coat it's sophisticated and elegant, yet you could make this look urban by wearing denim shorts and boots. The color combination it's also fantastic.
