A friend of my mum’s gave away many of her gorgeous clothes a few years back when she moved to Italy. I scored a beautiful handmade pair of Ferragamo heels, some key work pieces from Max Mara and I also chose this camel vintage jacket. No one (including myself) could understand my fascination with this jacket but I absolutely love it. It reminds me of the jacket Serena wore in the pilot of Gossip Girl when she arrived at Grand Central.
I will admit I am not a fan of vintage clothing but I do like pieces that speak to me and that have a story. I guess I need to know who wore the item before me and the idea of some faceless individual creating memories in a piece only later to discard it or have to sell it makes me worry about the energy of the piece. Perhaps I think about things to much and too intensely.
