    Win­ter Wears

    11 May 2015

    Some win­ter essen­tials.

    Here are a hand­ful of sim­plis­tic items I gath­ered in prepa­ra­tion for the win­ter sea­son just around the cor­ner. It is a col­lec­tion of reserved, qui­et pat­terns and tex­tures that rep­re­sent the cool­ness of the win­ter breeze ear­ly in the morn­ing. Dull colours have been my ulti­mate go-to this year as the days have become sig­nif­i­cant­ly cool­er, heav­i­ly influ­enced by the gloomy days from a few weeks ago when tor­ren­tial rain hit Syd­ney for almost an entire week. It was even a strug­gle dri­ving to uni­ver­si­ty; the fog, heavy rain and strong winds com­bined were work­ing com­plete­ly against me. Despite this, I still enjoyed it more than the sun. I guess I real­ly do have issues.

    Win­ter is my favourite sea­son of the year. It is a time for warm cups of cof­fee, feet tucked under wrin­kled sheets, book flick­ing, can­dles, dark morn­ings, dusty win­dowsills, and sigh­ings. The cold and gloomy weath­er brings me so much joy, which, when I think about it, is actu­al­ly pret­ty strange. The pho­tographed sweater is one I dis­cov­ered a few weeks ago when I was try­ing to bat­tle the strong winds by pur­chas­ing some­thing seem­ing­ly warm. This sweater did it for me. It has a fur­ry tex­ture on the inside and a sim­plis­tic pat­tern scat­tered all over a plain dark grey back­ground. It’s lit­er­al­ly every­thing I look for in a sweater. Pair­ing it with this pair of Oscar Wylee Win­ston frames, it gives off a sub­tle intel­li­gence that is very casu­al and laid-back. It is not atten­tion-seek­ing, it does not demand to be seen, but it is there. For me, that’s the key to pair­ing items that bring a sense of uni­ty whilst also slight­ly clash­ing with one anoth­er.
