Hold the fricken gates. I am officially obsessed. Zambesi’s new winter collection is like the Jezebel of clothing – luring me over to the dark side of poverty and promiscuous behaviour. Maybe not the promiscuous behaviour so much, but poverty for damn sure. And it’s funny, because Zambesi is one of those labels that I’ve always appreciated from afar, but never actually bought. Up until three weeks ago, I had never owned a single piece of Zambesi. This is of course due largely to its inaccessibility to my wallet, but I’ve always felt that the dark, moody nature of the label didn’t really fit in with my wardrobe aesthetic. Everything’s changed. Let me break it down. First of all, the baseball jacket (above). Encyclopedia Brown-chic.
The heavy knit, turquoise turtle neck sweater. Just the ticket for a fruity fisherman.
And his shawl collared shipmate.
The only shirts I want to wear right now are a little bit oversized and made from really light, patterned cloths (this one is cotton/silk). The almost weightless fabric falls perfectly when tucked in, and billows when you move in the wind or when you walk.
But especially the baseball jacket. OBSESSED!
I LIKE YOU!
