Gareth Pugh x Melissa


Last friday night I stopped by the ever inspiring store Layers for the launch of the Gareth Pugh + Melissa collaboration. I spent a few hours jamming to some retro tunes with Charlie, while battling the temptation of acquiring a pair from the new collection. Don't get me wrong, I think the structured plastic sandals were cool as hell, but you know I don't really ever wear flats. Luckily things fell in to places quite quickly when I realized the shoes are all deliberately bubblegum scented, making them quite the impressive air refresher. It's like they knew I was going to need that little extra something to win me over.

I wore a diesel blouse, bruno pieters x weekday skirt, self customized AA clutch, fashionology ring and alpha saphir watch.

and may I ad that I am still as amazed by Charlie's Dominic Jones beetle ring as I've ever been.

What an incredible collection. I'm glad you ended up taking the sandals, the bubblegum scent would have won me over as well. And you customized clutch is totally rad.

I so agree with the whole flats thing, flats give me so much calf pain, so I'm really hoping there will be another collab. with heels next time. I wanted the black & white sandals badly!
