I’ve sort of ceased wearing colour since moving to London 3 summers ago. It happened without thought.
In NYC, I used to wear this same palette of black, white, and more black. In Singapore, I prefer some print, because the light is relentlessly bright there, and we do live surrounded by the sea.
Black is utilitarian, efficient, clean. I like its simplicity, its directness. It’s a colour that doesn’t waver when it speaks.
I also like, co-ordinating with, Bruno.
I think it’s called the Pop dress, and it’s part of Ukulele’s Fall 2015 collection.
The weather turned cold; the shot of pink seemed to echo this surge of joy I feel.
It’s an easy dress to wear. The neck can be buttoned up to fit more snugly and to sit higher. I like the quiet detailing, and subtle whimsy- pink zipper down the side, curved hemline, and the print on the top half of the dress.
It does a great job multitasking.
Today was another busy day spent commuting and running all over London. I threw the dress back on. At Central St Martins, I was stopped by 3 different strangers and asked what I was currently studying, at school…
To one perplexed student, I explained gently- I think I’m old enough to be your mother.
In the afternoon I visited Concept Store Y. Instead of returning the dress, I decided, at 1xx pounds, there is room in my closet for pretty pink.
