>> Continuing on with the Chanel theme, I came across a bit of leather quilting that whilst obviously is nothing ground breaking in terms of its material choice, does appropriate that irresistibly tactile quilted stuff  in quite a nicely acceptable way.  Which is surely better than the bundles of quilted handbags comin' at ya from every corner of the high street….  H by Harris is a fairly new accessories label that will be launching in Dover Street Market and Browns soon.  Though roomy bags and satchels are their primary concern, with this hooded 'H' jacket with detachable rucksack, H by Harris is dipping their toes into apparel.  The whole piece is an inexplicably attractive upgrade version of the school trip gear that I donned back in the day when we had annual excursions to Dorset and was forced to breathe actual fresh and clean air and to rely on entertainment without TV (oh the bother…).  A pair of hunter wellies and dishevelled hair would of course form a pretty practical festival ensemble (going to Way Out West in Gothenberg in two weeks time!)… however, I'm imagining it unbuttoned with a sculpted body-con dress underneath, a clang of costume jewellery, some sheer thigh highs and some ponyskin flat brogues in a worrying mish mash that does tread the dangerline of stuffing too many style genres into one outfit.  Sadly seasoned Barbour gal I am not and since I haven't quite perfected the mix of incorporating country-style gear into outfits, a slightly mashed-up outfit is the best I could hope for…

    You’ve managed to pull outfits together better than most of us.
    I really like both pieces, they look so chic.

  7. Darrah says:

    I like the overall design, but I wish it came in a different color!

  8. Claire says:

    I should very much like to wear that over a high-necked shaggy fur dress and trousers in the snow.

    Ahaha! How cute/interesting/funny design! I like! 🙂

    It is AMAZING. I am obsessed with a)backpacks b)leather and c)quilting so this is pretty much a dream come true. Browns, you say? Curses, it will undoubtedly be too expensive for me. Sigh.

  12. I love quilting but not leather and quilting. I only seem to get on with leather bags and shoes.

    How ingenious! Love the quilted aspect. 😀

    Loving the combination of different sized diamonds, and the blue leather really does look wonderful. I have been saving up for a quilted navy Barbour jackets for autumn, but if I can find a leather piece I am totally getting one lol. Hope you’re having a beautiful weekend 🙂

    Darrah: I’d love the pieces in grey preferably…though navy is slightly better than black which would have been too obvious…

    I love that you have to take off your jacket to get ANYTHING out of your pack. For convenience sake, soaprah!
