Give My Dreams To The Gypsies

Mist marked the weather just before I left for London. There was an eery net that smoked the air and disguised the trees, and it immediately enchanted my mind with landscape destined for creepy gypsy fairytales. I played dress up quite a lot in my week at home, adding colour and quirk to silent times in the countryside; but I felt totally at home in the bohemian clothing tones. Take this gold leaf blazer I'm wearing, that looks like a fusion of Galliano and McQueen's twisted regal ideas. The pattern up close looks like victorian wallpaper, and there's a subtle glisten and silver spark to it when the light manages to pierce through the mist and catch it. Coupled with an aladdin ruby hat, I'm bringing this colourful but suited gypsy style back to the city. And a designer that has injected a similar feeling into suits for Spring is Tom Ford. I love how the blazers adopt retro colours and patterns, taking geek chic to an evolved level of lux.
