Matador


Keep, keep returning to this image.  Like I keep thinking back to the matador thing that Balenciaga dabbled with a while ago.  50s Spain.  Raffia.  It's unlikely that this is what she was channeling in the photograph but there you go.  Chaos in action. 
A beautifully balanced, high waisted, almost pedal pusher. 
I did buy an acceptable Zara version last month, for a tiny price which a colleague appreciated as 'totes profesh'. The fabric bobbles.  But I can wear the shorter jumpers in my cupboards.
