Let me introduce you to my favourite designer – all hail Sir Alexander of Wang. The man just gets me, with his tough yet subtle aesthetic, quirky detailing (studs on the BOTTOM of bags – hello?!!) and his love of black. His clothes, and especially his accessories, are always on my wishlist (take note loved ones in need of ideas for Christmas!) and he’s one of the only designers I’m willing to part with my hard earned cash for. For him I will unashamedly make absurd justifications like, “it’s an investment piece” or “when you consider I’ll be wearing it every day, it’s really worth it!!” An early Christmas present to myself (you really can’t rely on those loved ones) was a pair of boots from his Fall Winter 11-12 collection. With only a small window before the Berlin snow starts falling and these babies are relegated to the spring, I might have to resort to wearing them in the house with my PJ’s… well I’ve got to get the wear out of them haven’t I?!!
