This pant suit from the Jean-Louis Scherrer boutique always makes me smile. The colour reminds me of a time in my youth when I was so fascinated and obsessed by the hue that I almost started to actually turn into the colour – even my make-up and food started to become decidedly purple!
This particular piece is a beautiful example of Scherrer’s unique style, although it's not actually couture, the fabric is a sumptuous silk mix and I love the blouses' band collar and pussy bow detail;not to mentionits bell sleeves. The cigarette style trousers are made using a heavy velvet and have concealed pockets as well as a zipon the calf, which makes me think it must be a late 1980'spiece belonging to one of his Russian Czar themed collections.
The Gucci purse in brown lizard leather is beautiful however due to its impish size it is virtually unwearable unless I decide I am having a phone free evening. I can only manage to carry a lady like ensemble of keys, powder, credit card, handkerchief and lipstick!
