Ok, since I had enough of restless napping days at home waiting for my baby(!) I yesterday decided to do a little street style snapping at Burberry’s in Kensington Gardens where some of my favourite chic girls where parading around, Lena Perminova was one of them, in this perfect mix of high and low, a Burberry Prorsum peplum tweed jacket and skirt by H&M, bag by Analeena.
I’ve found myself taking a conscious step away from all this shearling madness out there but I never say never, I might end up in there anyway. I’m rather looking for the perfect couture faux fur (or a real one), or a feather bomber, something like this jacket above from Maison Martin Margiela Fall 2010 collection, pretty much fur perfection to me and I’ve used it as inspiration when I had a look around what else’s out there.
I didn’t find anything similar but I came across these goodies in range of different prices, I know they don’t remind much of the original but I actually think the cheapest one from Bik Bok has potential.
I wouldn’t mind facing colder days with this in my wardrobe, perfect for London Autumn.

Earlier this year, in April and May I was invited along with my good friend Kaz for several press days around in London. I was so excited about the next season’s outerwear, cape’s and coats in soft cashmere in beige and camel scales and the shearling aviator’s. Even if the spring hadn’t really started yet my mind was already on the next season despite there was a summer to be squeezed in between. And don’t get me wrong, I love the summertime but there’s something special with September month and the Fall/ Winter collections, a fresh start, blank sheets, like starting a new year in school, a clishé but oh so true.
I know I probably should be tired of this so obvious trend by now like many out there already are but how gorgeous isn’t Burberry Prorsum’s Fall collection, I love everything in it and for me the Aviator above all Aviator’s is the Reserve Shearling Aviator Jacket on the right above so beautiful!
Having that dream said out in the open reality brings me down to earth and I do have my feet well planted on the ground and not up in the sky. But if anyone by any chance get tired of theirs they are more than welcome to send it my way.
