Cardigan Craving: Junk de Luxe.

October 19, 2009
Due to my more than short attention span, I tend to alter my focus from certain brands to others each season, which means few ever seem worthy of investing in each time ’round. Junk de Luxe is the one high-end-of-high-street label that always manages to buck the trend. Granted the majority of their collection is, each season, composed of what I like to call “safe stock” (i.e. a profusion of conventional cuts rendered in grey and black), they always manage to secure my attention with one or two items that hold that bit more quirk-appeal than the remainder.
For AW09 I’m hankering after the below-pictured warped harlequin-esque print cardigan in, eh ironically, grey and black. But what it lacks regarding the chromatic it makes up for with geometrics or at least that’s my logic. And it has pockets, which too few cardigans are in possession of. And I have a €50 gift voucher from the beautiful people at BT2 (who lavished breakfast pastries and said gift vouchers on us bloggers last Saturday) so more Junk will inevitably be added to the trunk, I reckon.

    I was in BTs over the weekend and liked the Junk de Luxe cardigans they had but the quality of the fabric was a joke for the price they were asking. Their designs are lovely but I'd rather not have it fall apart after a few weeks of wear.

    Zaniac: I can see where you're coming from, I usually buy most of my Junk de Luxe gear from TK Maxx where the price is a little more reasonable. Still, there are brands out there charging the same price for clothing of much lower quality.Mat: Not as of yet, gonna get to spending the voucher this week.Blau von T: Of course not! Or so I'm telling myself as I prepare another buttered brown bread sandwich for dinner…/
