Tee Tick

Tee Tick

>> Call it the Phoebe Philo Celine effect, or perhaps it's an older show that set the seeds in motion for my hankering after the perfect leather t-shirt.  Whatever it is, and at whatever level of lemmingdom, I've been looking high and low especially at the high street options this season where leather tee options have gone wild (Wallis, H&M, Cos… ).  Still, I held back because I knew the answer lay in Steve's blog, as menswear designer Carolyn Massey's A/W 10-11 designed a patch pocket nude leather tee that in terms of shade and shape fit the bill.  I don't want anything remotely fitted i.e. something I might 'perspire' in… so an XS in menswear should do the trick.   



Fortunately, through the other half, I was able to make a private order and come August, a buttery bit of nudie leather will be slinking around me…

    I’m very much enjoying all the posts your churning out, it’s nice to have you back properly!
    Last year when I was at Fashion156 (and Guy was on holiday…) Luke brought in his recent delivery of metres of pleather that we draped into ballgowns, but he eventually made them into a leather t shirt which looked amazing but was the sweatiest thing in the World.
    A little story for you there…

    I have a vintage copper leather t-shirt, but really liked the Celine ones better. It’s amazing how sleek and molded they are, and how perfectly they tucked into those wide-legged pants; my old boxy shirt could never do that.

    Ohh, that looks so deliciously soft. The colour is lovely too. I can imagine it with a grey long sleeve t-shirt underneath it…

    Wow I am seriously jealous! It’s beautiful. Literally looking buttery soft, which the colour only accentuates! I just bought a leather shirt in distressed blue from Muuba. It has some crazy wiring at the hem of it so that you can change the shape lol.

    The Phoebe Philo effect is indeed pervasive! I’ve been looking at the leather shirts and dresses too- I love them in nude leather!
