A week ago a thought crossed my mind: in a few days I'll be going away for two months for the filming of a tv series I'm directing and co-writing and I have nothing to wear.
This might sound funny at first, but let me ensure you it's not. Autumn is in full swing and I can no longer wear my favourite summer pieces and pretend I haven't noticed the change in the seasons. I mean, it's cold guys.
And in my world, this type of weather means only one thing - leather.
Ever since high school days, my statement piece has always been the good old black leather jacket. So yesterday when I finally took a break from endless screenwriting, I turned over to some serious shopping inspirations.
And there it was, looking at me from the FARFETCH store, this artificial leather perfection from SHRIMPS whose coats have been on my wishlist for years. At first I stared at it like a little kid in a candy store, then scrolled up and down and before I knew it, my brain started creating bunch of outfit ideas with it being a key piece.
I'm perfectly aware that the red fluffy collar might be just a little too much for some people, but boy oh boy it's bloody perfect for me.
Farfetch are currently launching their #TheOne campaign, searching for that one show stopping piece that has the ability to make you feel like the queen / king of the world just by wearing it and let me tell you something - I would never take it off.
Imagine this: it's 6 in the morning, the rain is pouring, it's ice-age cold, you're feeling tired but the long day of filming is just about to start and staying in bed is no longer an option. You manage to get dressed even though you'd prefer to go out in your PJs and then you put on this jacket. Boom! Everything changes. You ditch those sneakers and go for red, shiny Docs. The day can begin.
So before I end this post, let's take this daydreaming a bit further, showing you a few other pieces I'd love to wear in combination with this Shrimps jacket.
Now it's your turn - which item has the cult status in your closet and why?
