oh dear, i started another tumblr. wearing the pants is all about women in menswear – because it’s awesome.
when i was browsing through the latest spring modern sale at bukowskis (they really bring me endless amounts of joy, that auction house) i was quite taken by all the beautiful flower still life pieces. i thought back to how some of my favourite collections from the autumn 2011 shows were so bright and colourful, and knew it would make for a nice comparison – especially since i am noticing that the northerners are really enjoying the coming spring and we, conversely, are really loving the coming of autumn. the other day i stood in the sun and actually relished the warmth as opposed to cursing it. this really is the best time of year.
have died and gone to bearded, manly, lumberjackin’ and nice fittin’ on the rear denim heaven thanks to the west is dead fall 2011 lookbook. i would also wear all these things myself, though – especially those colourful denims.

have recently been introduced to two new personal style blogs that have gone straight into my reader. milk teeths that was recommended to me by kate, as well as the other emily recently featured by mallory.
let’s play that fun game if we had money to spend at la garconne
their latest lookbook is none too shabby, either.
speaking of inappropriate levels of shopping, have you seen this girl’s shoe closet? all jeffrey campbell.
a series i love so much i actually have to hold myself back from making more. trying to keep these relatively few and far between because i know that if i didn’t they would become boring. it would be like eating pancakes every day. where’s the fun in that? pancakes are so good because you only have them now and then – usually when it’s raining. apparently only a south african / afrikaans thing … or … something only my mom did? consequently not a rainy day goes by without the thought of pancakes now. anyway, i think you get it. colour comparisons = pancakes in this roundabout analogy.
see the rest of the colour comparisons.
ps: it’s not actually raining here, but i hope it is somewhere.
i first came across hetterson via anja who i also follow on flickr, she was the photographer for the beautiful new spring lookbook. wowsies. then i realised hetterson is the new name of designer hannah elise’s previous label bekvam. aah, it’s all making sense to me now. what a talent. shop the collection here.
Hetterson is a handcrafted line of clothing and knitwear. each piece is carefully made, with a strong focus on sustainable materials and production.
