Rick Owens tank dress, cotton
Silent by Damir Doma tank dress, cotton
Guidi 986 Backzips, baby calf
This beautiful coat from the Rick Owens RELEASE SS10 collection has been sitting patiently on its hanger for far too many seasons, only to be worn a small handful of times. Yesterday's weather presented the perfect opportunity to finally wear it out. At the time I bought it I took a risk and went with this Dust colour instead of black. No regrets, other than that I should have bought both. The body fabric is stiff and light, and the airflow from simply walking is enough to make it fan out like a cape. Hanging in my closet, the shoulder fins were pressed down. I have it now with the fins in an upright position, ready for its next wear. Underneath I layered a sheer black tank dress with my favourite Silent short dress over the top. For an everyday outfit I thought it best not to add too much to an already striking coat.
