Well, let me tell you, I met Dev back in 2005 when he was a depressed emo playing in the band Test-Icicles, we were friends on Flickr, I looked very Mancunian, and Harry Styles was just 11 years old. But I didn’t own a leather suit.
So, I pointed by browser in the direction of the Zara website and found this tailored faux leather blazer with a lapel collar and long sleeves and these high-waist faux leather trousers with front and back patch pockets.
I usually wear a lot of slim clothes; especially in the trouser department – so was a bit skeptical and anticipating having to return the trousers — but I actually love them. I think the whole fit works really well.
To add a pop of colour, I matched it with the pink swimsuit that I got from Missguided’s Playboy Collection. I can’t admit to ever have read a copy of Playboy Magazine, but when I was a child I had Playboy branded wallpaper in my bedroom. Fun fact.
There’s something about the Playboy bunny icon that I’ve always liked – which was created by American graphic designer Art Paul to be used as an endnote in the second issue of the magazine.
Anyway, I’m happy with my purchases. I’m looking forward to when the pandemic restrictions start to ease off, when bars, pubs, and clubs re-open, and I have a good reason to dress in something other than black skinny jeans and a t-shirt.
