I was looking for a black summer jacket.
On the brown side of my wardrobe, I’ve got the J. Crew Field Jacket in olive/moss. Works perfectly for San Francisco summer mornings, i.e. warm with a chance of fog, or foggy with a chance of warm. But I had a hankering for a cousine noir, a lightweight woven cotton something or other. I poked around online.
I looked at this. Always a Bottega Veneta fan.
I considered this, for my next incarnation as a downtown sculptress who lives in, um, Antwerp? Perhaps Berlin or Prague?
I loved this, by a Danish designer I’d never heard of before, Henrik Vibskov.
I liked this, if men’s sizes were small enough.
I ordered this. The images is little because I bought the last one and the picture is no longer to be found on net-a-porter.
Please tell me you’ve done something similar, somewhere, somehow. That we’ve all had a moment in which periwinkle becomes the new black?
