Wasps & War

Every month I usually try and take a stab in the dark at a brand new bright colour. Last month it was coral orange, and today it's the hazzard loud yellow. I picked up a mustard toned trench jacket from a vintage shop that has a world war weight and tailoring to it. With my slim frame I can sometimes look a little drowned in the classic black trench, but a pop of colour is just the ticket to regiment it into my wardrobe for that Bottega Veneta feel. I also thought I'd feature a recent collection by Christian Westphal. I adore the practically 'glow in the dark' attention to yellow, adding a pop of colour to a lookbook that focuses on unexpected funnel shapes and movement. He's a designer that transforms quirky textures into minimal elegance, and I love it!
