Here are a few links I enjoyed this week. 🌻
- This week I finished reading the book Ametora, a book on how Japanese fashion became obsessed with perfecting the traditional American Ivy league style during the post world war II period. A good read if you’re interested in fashion and history.
- I’m in need of a high quality cardigan that covers my hips. I was inspired by a sweater my Irish supervisor wore from her homeland. You can find beautiful traditional Irish sweaters in excellent condition secondhand online. The story of the Aran sweater is pretty interesting too (bonus links: on the meaning of Aran sweater patterns; and one Irish man wearing his most cherished garments, not exactly chic, but I love the spirit of his outfit).
- My Green Closet takes us to an ethical fashion trade show in Berlin in this youtube video. Lots of creative ideas there worth checking out. I especially love the faux leather handbags made out of pineapple leaves.
