There is a fascinating geometry to clothing, one that I find far more interesting than I found any geometry that was taught in my high school math class. The shapes that fabrics can take, the way they layer over one another, and the way they move with our bodies are things I had never given much consideration until recently, when I put on my culottes for the first time in six months (having left them hanging, neglected, in my closet since we got back from NYFW) and realized just how different a particular top can look with bottoms of a different shape. Sometimes, a little unexpected nudge is all you need to consider the items in your wardrobe in a different way. Now, I’m imagining wearing my silk pyjamas with a coat and stilettos; I have visions of flared jeans paired with an oversized coat and bag that exaggerate the heavy, structural look, and I can’t get enough of layering long tops over longer skirts. Even a month ago, I would never have dreamed of pairing a top that hits at mid-thigh with a skirt that extends to mid-calf, but I love the result, which feels like a sneaky way of getting away with pyjama dressing while no one around you is any the wiser about how comfortable you really are…!

Coucou mes belles, bon lundi ! Je me suis trop bien amusée ce week-end et donc il ne me reste pas le temps de faire la traduction de mon texte aujourd’hui. Je vous reviens en français des mercredi – et entretemps, he vous souhaite une très belle semaine.

  1. Happy Monday, Cee! Love this play on proportions/silhouettes and can’t wait to experiment more with my own closet this spring!! As for pyjama dressing? Haha, I’m ALL in! 😉 And… yay, yay can’t wait for our city date, plus opportunity to spill more wine! Enjoy the sunshine today friend! xo

  2. As someone who used to design clothing (although much more less sophisticated in style than what you wear!), I can genuinely say that I think silhouettes and shapes of pieces are the most important aspects of garment design. I love how you paired these items – and I love the blush color against the black and grey!
