Hardly a breakthrough topic for a blog post, as it’s certainly been well documented on Classiq, but the trench is the only type of coat I have been wearing this autumn, with a couple of exceptions. I’ve been practically living in my cream, beige and black trench coats. On many days only my shirt or sweater changes, and sometimes my shoes too: oxfords, high-heeled pointed-toe pumps or sneakers on weekends. But I usually don’t have any problem sporting the same outfit two days in a row. I wore my leather jacket one day and all I was thinking was why on Earth I hadn’t put on my trench. I feel at ease in it. But I feel best dressed too. And that’s the whole secret I think. Whenever I put it on it’s like the best new find and an old classic at the same time. I love its universal language, how everyone can wear it at any age: it’s a test a timeless piece always passes.
I wish you a great weekend! And to my fellow Bucharest residents, I would like to recommend a film festival, Les Films de Cannes à Bucarest, 25th-31th October, presenting some of the films that premiered at Cannes this year, like the Palme d’Or winner La vie d’Adèle, J.C. Chandor’s All Is Lost (with Robert Redford), Only God Forgives (starring Ryan Gosling and Kristin Scott Thomas), Asghar Farhadi’s Le passé (Bérénice Bejo won for Best Actress), Ethan and Joel Coen’s Inside Llewyn Davis, Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, but also a Maurice Pialat retrospective and Steven Spielberg’s Duel and E.T. Here is the complete schedule of the festival.
