Confezioni Crosby

Confezioni Crosby SS 13

they have done it again. Confezioni Crosby, who i have featured numerous times, has a beautiful new summer collection that will make you want to go on holiday forever.

Confezioni Crosby is a collaboration with a historic New York based manufacturer of mens uniforms and traditional work garmets. The idea was born from the challenge of transforming real american work wear into every day clothing for women, changings its proportions and fits and adding touches of softness and femininity. It is a contrast that throws the idea of functional clothing into an unexpected key, giving it a new meaning.

Confezioni Crosby F/W 2012

easter is my favourite holiday. not because of the chocolate (who cares about the chocolate? we can buy that stuff all year round – who are we kidding.) no no, it’s because every easter weekend in my living memory has marked the turn of the seasons. it will always be cold & rainy without fail. and i look forward to it so, so much – especially when the march heat waves almost send me to the brink of tears. okay i’m exaggerating, those were probably just my eyes sweating.

and – rain it did this weekend! we had a mini-break in the karoo where good intentions of taking photos of the stars were ruined by amazingly cloudy weather. i was of course completely okay just hanging out indoors cooking lamb on the fire.

so when i spotted the confezioni crosby f/w 2012 lookbook (who i previously posted about here and here) over at jessica’s blog i felt it was quite serendipitous owing to my current joyous feelings about our impending winter. today i stopped to look at a tree whose leaves were turning and i almost broke into song. almost.
