HOME AT LAST

Oct 29, 2009

so what i was alluding to in my last Ann Sofie Back post finally arrived! i've been STALKING this assymetric leather biker poncho since her AW08 show and it's been near impossible to track down....


UNTIL NOW!

the right side is like a poncho/cape that warps into a classic moto/biker jacket on the left side.




worn with vintage Dead Kennedys tee, Forever21 black jeans, Marc Jacobs buckle boots

it's absolutely breath-taking and i seriously have NO words for it. nothing does it justice - certainly not my shoddy pictures. i swore when i saw this on the runway i would never need another jacket and now that i have finally procured it, i'm fairly certain i won't. i mean i can't promise or anything :) but how do you top something like this?

i know the ultimate question will be HOW i came upon this holy of holies, and the answer is...

The Convenience Store


i managed to track it down to this great great boutique in London and after some correspondence with the wonderful shopkeeper, Andrew Ibi, i was on my way to owning my dream dream dream jacket! not only is Andrew super duper nice and extremely helpful, but he has a true appreciation for his customers' love of fashion. it's a really refreshing experience shopping with him! my lovely package came with an advertising insert with their signature green stripes on the cover. inside are sketches by Andrew himself and ads of various brands carried.





The Convenience Store carries such brands as Gareth Pugh, Boudicca, Ann Sofie Back, Rick Owens, Hannah Marshall and more. they have an amazing selection so be sure to check out TCS at the below address if you are in London or check out the website here.

ANN DEMEULEMEESTER
i don't think anyone ever questions whether or not ann demeulemeester will deliver, come each new season, but at the end of each you're always left wondering how it could get any better. just when you think how will she top the leather ribcage belt contraption and THOSE lace up boots? she comes with these metal strands and insane strappy footwear. these boots are the ultimate for spring.

COMME DES GARCONS
this dress and jacket would drastically improve the quality of my life.
and what even needs to be said about these...

JUNYA WATANABE
love this take on the classic white shirt and tailored suit.

ISABEL MARANT
Parisian chic yes. other shows may have more whoa and pizazz but Isabel Marant always shows the most everyday wearable chic clothes. this jacket is perfection.

SOPHIA KOKOSALAKI
after last fall's crazy metal and chainmail detailed jackets i looked forward to seeing what new details there would be for spring. surprisingly these shoes caught my eye more than the clothes. the detail on the jacket though is so exquisite.

MARGIELA
no words.
