But certainly a lot of it: The Row Pre Fall 2015 collection.
I seriously did not care for their Resort 2015 collection, perhaps due to the fact they decided to use Jamie Bochert as their model who, with her more than sullen expression, managed to bring the whole thing down for me. So with this I feel a little bit more uplifted. Shapes and textures also call for a very pared down take on accessories which happens to be just the look I am into.
Now I am quite sure I can hear some muttering among you gents reading or just glancing over this. Something along the lines of “But why hide your body like that?”. I understand the confusion. On most days I for one do not shy away from the allure of high heels, lace and leather.
But the appeal of clean and straight lines, to me at least, lies in the neatness of it all. On some days, to be able to step out and to be sure ‘all is in order’, with the focus away from the body, gives strength and clear vision. Like I imagine what a suit does for a man.
What say you?
