This jacket is…
I love florals. I love florals in the way that makes the Christian Dior Fall 2010 Haute Couture line a permanent memory. It was colorful, lush, and grand.
When I think of florals in fashion I think of the many interpretations; my mind wanders from the beading of Naeem Khan to the sweet prints of Tracey Reese. I particularly ENJOY an edgy rendition of florals. I particularly love a floral presented in a way that makes me say “I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that before.”
Enter the floral corded moto-jacket from 3.1 Phillip Lim.
I was casually Instagram stalking June Ambrose (as I am known to do over lunch) when I came across this pic. It was so beautiful I had to take a screen shot. The colors. The texture. The zippers. The shape. THIS IS A WORK OF ART! And did I mention it’s silk.
I have daydreamed about this jacket. Yes, I daydreamed about wearing this jacket with black leather skinnies with black leather stiletto boots. And a black pencil skirt and pearls. And a black maxi dress with orange, mint, lavendar long beaded necklaces. Funny, I only wear it with black in my daydreams.
Either way, it’s gorgeous.
