Well, aren't we a couple of slothy fashion bloggers with too much time on our hands? I've just recently noticed how strange it must seem to the general public that both my boyfriend and I are fashion bloggers and even then, I only noticed because there's a little 'eyebrow' raise and a bemused smile when I tell people. Still, I suppose I make things nauseatingly worse when I think of *ahem* "fun" (heavy on the air quotes) things to do like this… Battle of the Bretons!
You wrangle it out PS3/X-Box etc… I pit hidden skulls against classic stripes in knitwear. To each their own, yah?
So Steve got himself a very lovely and soon-to-be overworn E. Tautz breton striped jumper for his S/S 10 wardrobe. He's already taken it back to the grandparents, they approve and he's got the by-the-sea pics to prove it.
A week later, a different kind of Breton arrived in the office. I'd been salivating over its impending arrival whilst I was in Stockholm. Sibling London's intarsia Noah skull Breton from their outstanding third collection (wait for the monsters from the fourth one…) is finally mine. And I look forward to resisting pushing my thumbs through the sleeves making ratty holes in it.
As it so happens Sid from the Sibling trio also consulted on E. Tautz's knitwear too which makes the pairing all the more apt. I always knew the Noah Scalin-inspired skull would always win me over despite the fact that E.Tautz's version is probably likely to be worn a few more times. Like all my other so-called fun ideas though, this is a pretty fruitless battle given that either way… we can both steal each other's Bretons whenever we're feeling less/more of a classic mood… do you guys need a bucket?
