Raf Simons' second to last

Being inconsistent in blogging frequency has been a part of Dunia Fashyon but trust me, this time around it was all due to the festive season - staying at my parents' hometowns where the locations are quite remote meant no stable internet connection, thus the lack of posts for the past two weeks or so.


Being apologetic and all, I'd like to make do with the absence of posts with this beautifully embroidered t-shirt style top by Jil Sander from Spring Summer 2012. The fact that this is Raf Simons' penultimate collection for Jil Sander raised the collector-wannabe in me and made it feel a bit more special (well, in addition to the fact that it was heftily discounted). This basically means that I have added the only piece of clothing to my minuscule Raf-for-Jil archive (the other two are both shoes).

And, in case you're like me who's oblivious to sheer obviousness Raf's final collection for Jil is AW12/13, so for those with the financial means, go on and grab for yourself something. All I know is the coveted lunch bag is now being a collector's item and has already been sold out at LN-CC.




 I initially planned to wear the top as a homage to the festivity of Eid Mubarak (notice the modern, geometric and slightly ethnic-inspired embroidery / the silhouette has a feel of 'baju kurung Kedah' to it). Alas, in view of the thickness (the shirt is lined with a sheath of silky polyamide) it was quite impossible to be worn where the location of festivity lacks air-conditioning. Or was it just the typical Malaysian me whose life depends on perennial comfort?


But I might be wearing this anyway and might be traipsing to open houses with a self-assurance that there will be air-conditioning, or else, the host will readily be fanning me continuously to ensure me werking this top...


Another reason of wearing this top other than its ethnic feel: anyone with a bloated tummy to hide? Too much rendang and ketupat? The boxy cut will conveniently hide that excess baggage, that muffin top, so you can eat away the same cycle of foods from one open house to another, over and over again - a much more effective solution than a sachet of ENO!

thompsonboy: those jeans ARE deliberately baggy. I was aiming for boxy top + boxy bottom look :)
