It’s Melting

by jennine on August 6, 2008

I don’t know about you, but around August, I start itching for Autumn. Perhaps since yesterday, the primary school across the street started the new ‘school year’ I’m partially envious that they get to a. read big, pretty picture books b. play outside for recess and c. wear their ‘back to school’ clothes. But quite honestly, I can’t justify Autumn in 28°C weather (that’s 82°F for you folks back home) even if I am from Southern California. But that doesn’t stop the itch… so much to be said, August is the month when I start ‘researching’ my inspiration for fall.

Dutch design duo Klavers van Engelen sparks the imagination as much as it dazzles the eye. They’ve combined elegance with dots of humor, dripping sunglasses, the perfect cliche for ‘so hot it’s melting’ days and the transparent trousers… as if it’s a response trousers that look like tights (leggings), they created the tights that look like trousers.

I know what you mean! Here in Vancouver we get about 2 months of intermittent summer after 10 months of rain, and I still find myself wishing for crisp winds and early nightfalls this time of year.

OMG the melting sunglasses. Not only are they awesome but they’re a perfect expression of what the wearer is feeling (if the wearer is SWELTERING that is!)

you know back in RB (where I was last weekend with the fam fam), if I didn’t have the air on in my car, my brand new shades would have looked EXACTLY like that. I’m thinking of leaving some sunglasses on my parents’ patio just to see what happens…xoxo from so-hot socal.
