The Ultimate Classics
One of my favourite fashion sites Vestiaire Collective (where I got my Celine Trio, Mansur Gavriel bucket bag & Chloe Susannah boots secondhand) has been sending a pretty special trunk round the world this show season, filled with four timeless staples and visiting each and every fashion week, from Berlin right through to Paris.
And I was more than happy to take it off their hands for the London leg of the tour… For the last three days I’ve been the proud, pretend owner of a Saint Laurent tux, a Burberry trench, Chanel breton and a vintage Hermes kelly bag. Sadly, today I have to hand them all back before they make their way to Milan… However, there’s a chance they could end up being yours – for good. Vestiaire are running a competition to let one lucky winner get their mitts on the entire contents of the trunk so these Parisienne vetements could be hanging in your wardrobe for life.
Details on how to enter:
Follow @vestiaireco on instagram, REGRAM this photo with the hashtag #VCFashionTour and tag three friends… That’s it. The comp closes midnight GMT March 9th. Head to Vestiaire Collective site for all the smallprint and more deets.
Now about what’s in that trunk… First up, the Chanel Breton tee and the Saint Laurent blazer. Simple, classic and yet never fails to feel great, especially when teamed with other essentials like vintage Levis and block-heeled ankle boots.
Next up, the Burberry wool trench. Deliciously thick, inherently British and in a go-with-everything neutral I personally love over all-black…
And last but by no means least, the mini Hermes Kelly bag. With a serious handbag weakness, its no surprise this boxy beauty immediately felt very home on my shoulder…
