From an editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier for the US Vogue February edition, entitled “Love in the Trenches”. A kind of silly-nice idea, really. It is models with their real-life sweethearts, shot wearing trench coats from the Spring collections. Wasn’t too fond of the other shots, but I do like Aminata Niaria in this polka dot trench – a nice twist on the classic. Cute shoes, and the touch of red lippie too, a very nice clean look overall.
Last weekend I was in Budapest Hungary for Lindy Shock, and just arrived in Stockholm Sweden for the Halloween Swing Camp, and I gotta say, it’s starting to get cold in Europe! Here in Sweden it’s also pretty dark – it amazes me every time! It’s 4pm and dark as night, and it’s only early November. Just thinking about Swedish mid-winter makes me shiver, so here are some wonderful winter coat illustrations from the 1930s to warm you up:
