  1. When layering goes too far

    It will be no suprise that I like the understated fall colour scheme and mix of rustic textures shown on the picture above; gabardine cotton trenchcoat that appears sage green on my screen (that that rhymes) burnt orange wool polo neck sweater, faded grey flannel trousers… yummy yet I get the feel the stylists that came up with this look were not aware of the dicta attributed to Coco Chanel:  “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” & “Less is always more.” I find the visual overkill of collars and ascot is a bit farcical. The Burberry Look, print ad for Burberrys’, 1982.
