Velour SS09: Pow(d)er shades.

June 8, 2009
Am all kinds of finished with exams and yet the weather detests me to such an extent that it would hide away the sunshine after what had been an inordinately bright and beautiful few days. And sweat-inducingly hot too, note to self – refrain from donning the featherlight Ungaro shirt during such desert temps. It may be powder blue and akin to a second skin but absorption is not its prime feature.

Still, that stint spent swathed in powder blue set me hankering after a collection making quality use of the colour, Velour‘s SS09 array of summery sportswear/sharply-tailored Swedish goodness. Vests, chic short-but-not-too-short shorts, geometric lightweight cardis and another blazer to add to the wishlist. Much cotton, much colour. Bring on the sun, please.
