A detail shot of the  overcoat’s dartless front,  the functional “integrated” semi turn-ups on the sleeves  and Carpincho gloves (and emerald green thick silk lining). And of course, mummy’s ex- silk georgette dress.
Again, thanks to Robert Spangle of TYS for the images.


Mummy’s Scarf

Worn by Your Truly some weeks ago during a casual stroll at London Fashion Week.
Image taken by Robert Spangle of Thousand Yard Style for his portfolio and placed by his courtesy at my disposal.

Talking about quality and sustainability:
The rather decoratively worn scarf is made of rather spongy pure silk Georgette, made (ones more!) from parts of an old dress of my mother. Highly delicate silk prints of such a high quality that they easily might get a second life after years or even decades without having faded…where’s the quality gone?

Practically all the rest is bespoke, NB the dartless overcoat with somewhat Edwardian (and cut wise complex) “semi box pleated side vents” and functional half-turn ups on the sleeves. The lack of any shoulder pads and shirt-sleeve style set sleeves on a piece made by a German tailor also defy the one or other dogma about “Spalla Whatsoever” etc.
Gloves are custom and don’t have a STD despite looking so, but are made of forest green Carpincho leather and unlined (with an elongated shaft; no pun intended).
