Shades of grey

And just like that, the fashion week is over... Now we have  six months to calm down, pop-in some much needed vitamin C, digest the news, share the favourites, spot the trends, write up the ultimate wish list, and prepare for another round comes February. 

Last weekend was the first one when I truly allowed myself to forget about my computer for more than a day. Instead I read, walked, did a bit of gardening and watched two fantastic fashion documentaries.

Then I sorted an outfit for the Cosmo blog awards ceremony tomorrow and, while I was at it, pulled out my "fifty shades of grey" - an oversized cashmere and wool coat that I bought on a whim, for practical reasons, but fell head-over-heels in love as soon as it arrived; favourite jumpers, the most wonderful See by Chloe trousers, much-adored Vanessa Bruno mini and Jaeger midi and, of course, the boots of all sorts. All that I am missing (well, dreaming of) right now is a huge, soft-soft-soft grey scarf and a cosy cardigan a la Stella McCartney... I think some DIY'ing and a trip to Zara (or NAP) are inevitable.

The timing also seemed perfect for sharing this DKNY campaign photographed by Peter Lindbergh back in 1998 - so relevant it's difficult to believe it's been 16 years since Esther Canadas put on that long sleeved sweater and white skirt outfit, the simple elegance in its purest form, and posed for one of my favourite photographers somewhere in New York.

  2. Не знаю почему,но раньше я никогда не обращала такого внимания на серый цвет и его оттенки.....
    А за прошедшие два-три сезона всё больше и больше появляется этот цвет в комбинациях с другими в моём гардеробе:)))
    Восхитительная фотосессия и вправду невозможно поверить что это так далеко....
    Безумно рада и в воленении ожидаю новых всплесков о появления Галияно!!!
    Желаю Вам славной и приятной новой недели,Наташенька:)
