Another week, another wanted list (Ha, saying that makes me feel a bit like a showmaster). Now that the temperatures dropped for real and we experienced the first day of snow, it isn’t that hard to imagine anymore: Christmas is knocking on the door. Luckily, I’m able to report that I’m almost settled gift wise (that doesn’t necessarily make me win some sympathy points, does it?). Nevertheless, I collected a few items which, as always, range from ridiculous pricy to nicely affordable and yes, this time it’s all about and for men. So let’s get started…
(1) Can one ever have enough winter coats slash jackets? I don’t think so and if you have any doubts, one look at this beauty is more than enough to change your mind. (5) A T-Shirt? Seriously? Yes, seriously. Because of the delicate dyed effect. (2) Noting his appointments in a pocketbook schedule makes him probably a  rarity. Although he probably enjoys doing this in style. (3) A classic chrome ballpoint pen might just be the perfect companion to do that. (4) Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, because he is only human, after all. And for once, he can approve of the packaging. (7) A propos packaging: L’Occitane has not only very good quality products, they look very nice as well. (6) A cotton and leather bag which would be his new daily companion. I’m pretty sure of it.

(1) A.P.C.: Duffle-Coat (2) Mucu: Olive Pocketbook Schedule (3) Pentel: Chrome Ballpoint Pen (4) Burt’s Bees: Lip Balm (5)Maison Martin Margiela: Overdyed Cotton-Jersey T-Shirt (6)  Billykirk: Large Caryall (7) L’Occitane: After Shave Balm

Ultimate sleekness. That’s what I thought when I came across this beauty. The absence of little details, or actually any details at all, is like a breath of fresh air.

This shot could not be filed under „news“, first because Garance uploaded it quite a while ago and second because I shared it with you before the relaunch. So why do I bother repeating myself? I mean, I can hardly excuse myself by saying that my choices are limited. Nope, the contrary is true. Maybe I have even to many options on my hands. So here is what I think: sometimes it is good to get back to something you liked and then, when you still feel the same way about it, you sure can take it for a good sign. When it comes to this picture, I still fall for the slightly gloomy atmosphere and the somewhat grainy texture. It is not too perfect, yet perfectly suited to be a keeper.

A classic trench coat, a blue shirt and a white sweater are an excellent combination. Okay, this is hardly news. On the „classics“ top ten list, this one ranks on or very close to the top. Probably somewhere near the „blue-jeans-and-white-t“ combo.  When you are dressing this way in the morning, you are probably not the type to cry out for attention. Or at least not in the mood. Otherwise you would probably opt for something with a camouflage print or neon detail (maybe even the bunny costume you always dreamt of wearing, but never dared to). But believe me when I’m saying that a classic doesn’t hurt from time to time. When well done, it is incredibly easy on the eye. One couldn’t ask for more, really.

Before sitting down to write my next post, my mind already tiptoed around different topics. There a few things that were on my mind, but somehow nothing really seemed to fit the moment. For instance, there is a book which I’m currently reading and which I’m sure is worth talking about. Yet I still have a few pages ahead of me and with that some more stories and thoughts that I would like to discover before speaking to you about it.
As my mind circled around several ideas, picking them up rather carefully, inspecting them rather suspiciously and dropping them rather harshly, I thought that maybe I should start with an image. And even before opening my folder, this image popped up in my mind. It crossed my way here and somehow it was stuck in my mind. And let me tell you, that is one good sign for a picture. One could try and explain this away with the electrifying shade of blue of the blue against this all white outfit. Yet that would be a far to easy road to take, because there is a tremendous amount of neon induced editorials out there and often they are nothing short of annoying. This one here on the other hand is pleasant on the eye and awakens a certain need for colour in your wardrobe. Maybe even for a blue coat.
