“A process of discovery, returning to one’s roots. Piece by piece, deconstructing and constructing a new story for Margiela. . . Approaching tailoring, techniques, craftsmanship like a new explorer, or painter. One who sees beauty in things that are often taken for granted, giving everything a newly enriched life. A powerful and fierce yet refined mix of fabrics and materials. Stripped down, or reborn together in startling and unexpected ways. . . New direction given with play on proportion and sartorial rules. Languid, sweeping. Precise tailoring. A new fuller, revealing silhouette. . . Looking through the glass, discovering an elusive, rare even arrestingly strange new beauty, of muses who nonchalantly arouse your senses.
We’re going to the Cape this weekend to close up the house for winter. It can be nice to go out there in the off-season, but mostly it’s just freezing and desolate. It should be perfectly crisp and gorgeous now though (I hope). I’ve pulled together the perfect casual fall outfit today, inspired by October in New England. There’s tortoiseshell, cable-knit, plaid, wood, gold, textured leather, and colorblock suede.
