My Place

They say ‘everything has a place and everything in its place’. Well maybe someone should tell that to the fashion industry. As the SS18 shows are starting to kick off, SS17 is reduced to sale racks and Pre Fall 18 starts to fill the shop floors, it feels like clothing is anywhere and everywhere other than in its rightful place. Who really wants to buy a £1450 cashmere sweater in 26 degree weather only for it end up in the back of closet until October? I’d like to say not me but that just wouldn’t be true. I’m a planner and am always buying stuff ahead for the next season. And while maybe I should be embracing light linens I’m totally not I’m embracing heavy stiff cottons like this AW17 AMI Paris shirt because it looks cool no matter where you place it. And maybe you can look cool even though that summer weather has got you all hot and bothered.

    A for Anthony? haha I totally feel you about the scheduling of runway vs. retail! Super confusing and not very practical but I guess that’s the fashion industry!

    I’m not much of a planner, but I would SO buy cashmere in ANY season! It’s always freezing in Scotland so I have a great excuse to wear knits all the time 🙂

    I am totally with you there! Especially in Canada where it is intensely hot in the summer and crazy cold in the winter, the fashion cycle doesn’t always make sense. I always find that I just buy the stuff on sale because thats around the time when I can actually start using those clothes right away!

    I’m kinda lucky living in Florida, everything I buy is mostly for the same season unless I have travel plans lol.

    I’m all with you on the planning part. I don’t think people in general realize that seasons change more rapidly than they think and all of a sudden the items they want are out of stock as everyone is out there buying something simultaneously. As for SS17, AW17 and SS18 my head is spinning after 4 fashion weeks. One more to go and then I might be back to SS17 for a while, haha.
