Obsessively checking Net-A-Porter’s “What’s New” page is one of my treasured internet hobbies. Why? If you want to score the must-have pieces on Net-A-Porter, you have to be quick. Last week I was only a couple hours behind my usual schedule and I missed the must-have Kenzo tee when it hit the floor and sold out in an hour, but I digress. I also love checking out What’s New because it exposes me to new designers, even if I’ll only ever just fantasize about owning their pieces.
Apparently the impossible is possible. I’ve fallen in love with a clutch, the avowed accessory enemy of a street-style hunter. Leave it to Proenza Schouler to create the perfect clutch. I just can’t get over how fucking cool it is.
My love affair with flared coats began the first time I saw an Alaïa coat in person. It’s the most elegant silhouette and universally flattering. This semi-sheer flared mesh coat by Junya Watanabe was made with an athletic mesh fabric designed by PUMA. Utilitarian fashion at its finest, this stylish piece avoids the gimmicky feel that can sometimes befall unlikely partnerships by marrying the best of both brands.
Well done, Junya.
