In 2009, I wandered into a Jean-Charles de Castelbajac store in London and instantly became a huge fan of his work. My best and most-frequently-worn purchase was definitely the patent rainbow loafers. But I also love my boob-cloud top, sidewalk-traffic-stopping Lego dress, sailor outfit and smiling skirt. When I was in Paris last month, I stopped by the store there. The inventory was pretty picked over due to the sales, but there was one jacket that spoke to me. I’ve been wearing it constantly.
Over the years, I’ve accumulated a lot of jackets. I definitely didn’t need another, so I was feeling a little guilty about this one until I noticed this tag on it.
Clearly, my dangerous liaisons with Castelbajac are beyond my control.
