So I am back from a rather long and horribly intense camping trip and I’ve decided that maybe I need to be a bit less full-on when it comes to fashion. How much longer can we go on with these studs and chunks of waxed crocodile leather? To be honest I am worryingly attracted to Jason’s idea of living in pyjamas for a while.
However, when items like Pauric Sweeney’s gem-coloured bags turn up on Brown’s with white piping and “bronze perforated pockets” I am reminded of why I love fashion. Okay, at £800 this love may seem slightly conditional but who was it that said beauty is pain? Whoever it was they must have had a great wardrobe. This season has seen the reinvention of classic items and whether it be the Chanel 2.55 for the girls or the Chelsea boot for men, get on board this embellished bandwagon.
