To Tie For
It’s the modern and dramatically more comfortable cousin but the lace up and corset trend will certainly cinch you in.
I mean it just looks so cool.
Seen everywhere from shoes to shirts, skirts, structured jackets
and then of course there’s the amazing corset belts themselves.
Fashion seems to be focused on sublime details, ways in which our clothes can speak.
Customising, embellishment and carefully placed eye catching qualities.
There is a return to story telling in style, takes me back to my Dad’s era on kings road in London and I love it.
I’m a sucker for a good vintage tee, so when I saw the lace up vibes had hit them too I had to have one.
Instead of buying it new though I bribed my trusty dressmaker to upcycle this Harley find I picked up in NYC.
She sliced a V down the middle, stitched on the eyelet tape and we threaded it with a shoelace I found at the Salvos for 50c.
TO TIE FOR right 😉
