>> Putting together outfits out of a suitcase for about a month (I was doing that even during London Fashion Week) may look and sound like a blippy whimsical joy but the truth is, I'm glad to be back to planet Holloway for a while.  Well, a while meaning a week before I go out to Tokyo but that's long enough to enjoy the simple pleasure of nicking items from the other half such as this Monsieur Lacenaire knitted varsity teddy jacket.  I first heard of this French knitwear label when I saw them at Pitti Uomo in Florence over the summer and have since been tracking the label's rise in the menswear blogs.  Steve also specifically looked at the process and making behind this particular jacket and as a reward got one for himself via Mr Porter where the blue and white version are selling out like hotcakes.

The other homely pleasure is arriving home to find about fifteen Royal Mail "We can't be arsed to deliver things to your address" cards and then making the slightly rubbish trip to the North Road postal depot to scoop all of this stuff up.  One of these parcels included this much delayed laundry and pearl person brooch by Hairy Sock, an accessories label based in Latvia where polymer clay items of whimsy seem to easily pop out of designer Ruta Kiskyte's head of warped dreams.  The laundry brooch isn't on her Etsy site at the moment (although you may choose to have some Polish sausages hanging from your collar instead…) but the nubby pearl person is.  I've been in fear that the pins might fall out and I'd be left with a very droopy laundry line but thus far, they've stayed on the collar quite firmly…    

**EDIT** A reader helpfully pointed out that Hairy Sock is also available on the site Culture Label…

    I never said she was Latvian – I said she was based in Latvia… she’s studying in Riga at present no?

  4. Monika says:

    Sorry, my misread!
    She keeps moving around between Riga – Vilnius – Paris, it seems.
    Am so happy to see emerging Lithuanian talent :)
