There is something about wide buttoned military jackets that gets me excited. I had one when I was 9 and my friends used to envy. They said it was too decorative ... haha... The minute I saw this March jacket on Stalk Buy Love, my grown up self remembered how my mom carefully piled away my cashmere sweaters and winter expenses into a big suitcase with lots of mothballs. For my favourite jacket, she always said, this is mothball proof, go hang it back in isolation. Even she knew back then that this kind of an all season urban uniform is trend driven, and I should probably flaunt it all year round.
I could say the same for this Jacket too. The sharp fierce colour is not only attractive, but a total impressionistic .
I have a very strong feeling that this could pass and make for a perfectly cool formal outerwear, if you have a funked up working environment, and you want to show that having diversity with your wardrobe is equally important. Its about time we show em folks, that a military jacket is a staple among the civilians too.
We shot this look in Jan last week. It was a cold and gloomy day. As we proceed towards spring , I cannot think of wearing the fur collar right now . Its about time that I stuff half off my season's worth of clothes back into the blow tights into the attic . Time to rake away dead leaves and look for sprouted flowers. But this jacket is an year rounder. You are going to see me dragging this statement jacket and change profile pictures after profile pictures,maybe hanging it like a prop from my arm in a few month's time from now.
