Beyond Fabric x Purificacion Garcia #3
Sunshine sets the motto for brighter, bolder shades to bring that extra kick into your attire. What initially began as small details through colorful accessories, soon evolved into shirts, jackets and last but not least, bottoms. Even with a vast color palette at our disposal, purple is definitely not the first that comes to mind when choosing the so called “go to hell” pants; nonetheless, as soon as I spotted these jeans I just knew I had to incorporate them into a look…
The unusual shade is actually quite versatile allowing for beautiful combinations with both lighter and darker garments, such as the navy heavy knit shawl collar cardigan with duffle fastening and the pale blue gingham shirt. The floral print tie carries on the playful nature of the outfit which is then anchored by brown suede chukkas with contrasting neon orange laces.
Beyond Fabric x Purificacion Garcia #1
Following my previous introduction to its SS13 collection, I got a chance to style some looks for Purificacion Garcia using my favourite pieces for the season.
Starting with what might just be my first choice among all the garments in the collection, and one of the season’s essentials, this suede bomber jacket instantly earned its way to the top spots of my wishlist. The beautiful taupe shade with chambray lining and orange/burgundy highlights on the pockets and zippers, set the mood for the whole look. A contrasting pale blue crewneck sweater underneath, dark denim with contrast orange stitching and supple suede boots pick up the chromatic and texture themes. The stripped knit tie adds a dash of color and pattern to the mix..
