I cannot believe it. I leave Stockholm unattended for four days and come back to fresh snow on the ground and minus temperatures – what the hell happened to Spring!?! I expressed my horror at the meteorological conditions to a colleague, only to be told that it sometimes can snow here until June – I have no words.
Anyway, luckily before the icy conditions arrived I managed to shoot today’s look, which features this season’s easy-breezy gingham print. Balmain, Meadham Kirchoff, Oscar de La Renta and Delpozo all showcased monochromatic gingham in their SS14 runway shows, but if you are operating on a slightly tighter (but equally fashionable) budget look no further than this preppy shirt by Barbour.
Barbour’s International Collection, which nods to the brand’s motorcycling heritage, is peppered with SS14’s gingham print, including on the lining of this Barbour jacket which I love. I’m wearing said shirt and jacket with matching red cardigan, Topshop jeans and Russell & Bromley shoes.
