Hey, gidday mates! What was a mild winter is now turning into a diabolically cold and wet spring, with the occasional sunny day to brighten things up. So it seems a little incongruous to be pushing warm-weather-clothing in the current climate, but surely we’re only a week or two away from balmier days. SURELY. To wit, I got my hands on these Missoni pieces last week, and they’re a far cry from what I’ve been wearing for the past few months (overcoat and black jeans or black leather jacket and stonewash jeans). The pants are significantly wider and higher waisted than anything I usually wear, and the jacket hits above the hips in that perfect 1950s crop. This stuff is elegant as all hell, but works perfectly with a white T-shirt and white socks and my classic Dr Martens. Prime example of this East Villager-by-way-of-New Zealand’s take on Italian luxury. Va bene?
