NO BASE LIKE HERM'
Evening style fanatics. Been out and about gathering fine things for the shoot we're doing tomorrow. Look at how beautiful this scarf is from Hermés. Its in the Pli de Base formation, ready for deployment in the playboy tailoring look am devising.
All four scarves I borrowed from there today are so lovely and fascinating am compelled to take pictures to try and capture them somehow. Have also been placing them in the base formation as per the tying cards supplied by the house. Double handy. This is not what am supposed to be doing however. Am hoping to use this fella in a look for tomorrows shoot. Teamed with the Gucci suits I now have, it looks pretty, pretty stylish. I've just been re-cutting/altering them.
Told you I can't stop taking pictures of them. This shawl collar bronze/brown linen-silk mix jacket is by Rake and is also special. Note the mother of pearl button that go both ways and squared off edge to the shawl. Creative Director Darby took that from the uniforms of the waiters in the original film, The Titanic: Nice-berg history inspired style. The Gucci numbers are my fav's for this voyage however. The colours will work well, particularly as the musician in question has black skin.
I managed to alter sleeves and trousers of both versions of the suit in between bouts of scarf gazing however. Was pleased to find the working cuff buttons of the suits to be rather pleasantly finished for RTW. Bravi Frida and team all round. Jolly well done. Expect perhaps think no need to write Gucci on then wooden buttons? Maybe it actually is okay in a modern context. A little crest might have been more suitable.
What I did next to them was a little less refined. Am just kidding Gucci. Only took them up temporarily. Its all quite, quite reversible. Nice-job too. Considering.
Anyway, isn't it good/rare when a plan/idea just rolls and functions how you'd hoped, no? Tried this idea out on the music fella today and he and his people were receptive. He looked brilliant in this get-up, although I say it myself. What can you do in these scenarios except enjoy it, and stay up all night taking pictures of scarves that are worth more than your car?
