tomboy dressing

boyfriend knits. chunky cardigans. slouchy pants. brogues. socks. buttoned up shirts. this is my favourite style at the moment. perhaps today, mostly as it feels it has frozen over in my studio space so i am drawn to oversized dressing. comfortable outfits. an updated preppy new yorker look mostly thanks to alexander wang who has, with a dark colour palette of charcoal, taupe and black, given this new nerd suddenly a fashionable update. classic shapes, colours and textures. nothing overdone. nothing over styled.  except an amazing handbag perhaps? 

alexander wang. the great. 

The row. sophisticated geek. 

preen. my favourite boyfriend knit paired with the sexiest shorts. 

alexander wang. my favourite oversized nanna cardigan. 

preen. slouchy pants and button up shirt.

Lanvin Resort 11

a virtuoso. without equal. opulent. faultless. every occasion. no occasion. everything works. and works. and works. so good i needed to remember to breathe. amen.  

these colours are insane. rich. powerful. seductive. woman. 

the perfect trench, in the perfect colour, caper. 

did i say woman? the most powerful woman. 

So flirty. so glamorous. 

insane. understated yet exaggerated. a complete juxtaposition. 

this look is forever. and ever, and ever....
