Heya Ladies, so Autumn is definitely here now
I love summer, but it is one of the busiest times for me, work wise, so I do look forward to Autumn, to digging out all the comfy jumpers, boots, vintage coats and black opaque tights (at least 70 denier).
Also I love the colour of the trees this time of year, I like driving in the rain, and when I get in, snuggling up on the sofa with a blanket, my slippers and a warming homemade soup.
What are your favourite things about Autumn? (or Fall I suppose if you are reading this in the US)
What are your favourite pieces that you always wear come the Autumn months?
Desdemona has some Ah-mazing pieces coming up for you this A/W. I’m going to show you just a couple of bits here now…
starting with this Original Welsh tapestry cape in a blue and tan brown geometric pattern and 2 leather covered buttons at the neck which makes a really cute detail.
then there’s these black patent Chelsea boots by Peter Kaiser
Last but not least we have this ‘Penny Lane’ Vintage afghan coat by ILGWU Union made original 1970s, faux suede with faux fur trim
The label inside is the International Ladies Garment Workers Union
The union was founded in the summer of 1900 in New York, and had primarily female members.
The Garment Worker (1984) by Judith Weller was commissioned by the ILGWU and the Public Art Fund, and donated to the City of New York. It is on permanent display outside 555 Seventh Avenue, between West 39th and 40th Streets in the Garment District of Midtown Manhattan. It portrays a garment worker at a sewing machine and is intended as a reminder of the role of the ILGWU’s members in making New York one of the garment and fashion centers of the world.
Kinda groovy huh?
thanks for reading….
