As the days in February begin to trickle in and 2019 is well and truly cemented, I’ve come to realise a few certain things about myself. Maybe it’s because I work in fashion where calendars run on a continuous repetitive cycle or maybe it’s because I’m a very organised person but I can’t help but feel that 2019 might just be a tad bit predictable. I can see my behaviour patterns, just like every other year I treat myself to a Paul Smith coat almost as a toast to the new opportunities of the following 12 months. But while some of my patterns (tartan in this instance) have become joyful traditions, there are others that I don’t wish to take forward. For instance, just going through the motions – the act of buying and wearing clothes like they aren’t a luxury but a necessity where their value isn’t taken into true account. I have become so far removed from myself before I discovered credit cards that I’ve forgotten fashion anticipation. It’s like sex as a race with no foreplay, a real get in/get out situation with loads of Prada being the goal in this scenario. I long to lust for a garment like I used when I didn’t have the budgets or debt to submerge myself and my denial into. But this year, the first time credit card free I can look at a piece, and see if I desire it enough to fork over my own money and really treasure it. So while I’m breaking my patterns, how could I not wear a coat that literally symbolises broken patterns like this nifty credit card free purchase from Paul Smith. Here’s to 2019 not being predictable!
