dunhill a/w 2010
thoughts: seriously, if anybody shows vintage inpsired ski boots with contrast laces (i prefer red but yellow is fine) it pretty much doesn’t matter what they do because i love them boots. dunhill showed a lot of pieces that i would consider for my very limited formal wardrobe. smart well cut trousers (which i wouldn’t tuck), slim not skinny jackets and black tie looks to boot. although, i’m disappointed in the overall lack of color i’m seeing in paris but i suppose parisians love black and it is for winter after all. even so, there was plenty of color in milan. either way, hats of to dunhill.
on the tenth day of christmas my true love gave to me, ten lords-a-leaping. as we draw nearer to the holidays i can’t help but reflect on how they have changed over the years. once upon a time it was all about lego castles and basically all about me. now that i’m older it’s obvious that it isn’t as important as it once was and is more a time for rest and family visiting. these days when i think of christmas it’s very nostalgic, ski lodges, spiced wine, butter rum, goose dinners and lots and lots of peppermint flavoring. so for the ten lords of leaping i drew a lot of inspiration from those olden times when skis were wood, people put candles on trees and strung popcorn garland instead of tinsel. happy holidays everybody!
