Oh, whoops. That is meant for Matias. I meant for this to answer the question of wether or not this was Margaret Howellâ€¦except its a double mistake, because its not Margaret Howell, but after Margaret Howell. So just never mind :/
She gets points for the jeans/Converse, but the men are pure normcore, (thought the transparent jacket/glasses is sort of saying something). Of course, it’ll eye-rollingly turn out that they’re creative directors for some global brand’s haute couture collection…
Andy, it has taken me a long time to realize this, but “normcore” is just a way for the fashion bunch to slander slow fashion. But slander it all you like, fast fashion has met its match. A lot of people are opting for looks you may consider “normacore” instead of the trends that come and go like extreme fits, loud prints, and statement pieces, which all have a shelf life. A good pair of classic, high rise jeans are not going to go out of style. Neither will a crew necked sweater. Nor will a pair of tennis shoes of a classic style like Stan Smith Adidas, Nike Cortez, or any time tested version. It is beyond nice to own clothing that looks classic, and can be worn now and later, instead of trying to find a fresh look that hasn’t been done before. The environment and the wallet kind of like it too. Please don’t take this is aimed at you. But the “normcore” tag is getting a bit old.
You’ve missed the irony of my point, Maria. Admittedly my “normcore” tag was tired, but my point was valid. Often the coolest people in fashion, like a former neighbor who was a production director for a major fashion glossy, are the ones that fly under (veer around!) the fashionista radar. They are about the art vs. the scene–or being seen. Not everyone’s a Karl Lagerfeld. Some just want to get on with their work–much as we want them to be a bit more “fashion.”
I’m so over skinny jeans for everyone. Not all of us have those wonderful slim shapely French and Italian legs. But this look of wide wide pants will take a bit of getting use to. In the end though, change always allows for new looks and new ideas. I’m climbing aboard.
I love this. Of course she looks amazing, of course, very classy, and very chic. But I also like what the men are wearing. I like the rain coat on the gentleman on the left. But of course the woman is the centerpiece! So cool dark jeans!
I really like that, unlike many of your contemporaries, you’ve held true to what you have always done and you’re not trying to sell me anything. Thank you for your consistency and your very, very good eye. I am always inspired by what I see on your site.
Oh I want those jeans. I love her whole look. Even from the back, she looks like an interesting person, haha! Yes, I’m looking for big, loose long jeans like those. Giving the skinny a break! http://www.pippihepburn.etsy.com
Fan of Margaret Howell’s early shirts, blousons and jackets, initially sold (and bought by me) through her sister’s ‘Jean Howell Shop’ on Lower Sloane Street, and over 40 years later, still classic. The other classic here (aside from the Chucks) must be the, French, Paraboot Michaels, unchanged for over 80 years!
Those jeans are just the show-stoppers of the Jeans world! That fit, those chunky cuffs… The dark indigo color that I gravitasjon toward… Yes… This is a nice shot. The lady is deffinately not Margaret herself, but she is clearly a Member of the Margaret Howell Mutual Admiration Society!
Those jeans with the chunky cuffs, that deep, rich indigo blue, the fit… Yes indeed… This pair is the show-stopper og all jeans! Though the lady wearing them is not Margaret, she is clearly the forundring member of The Margaret Howell Mutual Admiration Society. .
They look like the Margaret howell Worker jeans, I wrote about them on my site. I won’t link here as that might be considered spammy, but the post was posted on 6th March if you want to have a look :) That’s definitely not Margaret, but it’s after the show, so must be one of the team, sending these guys on their way!
