MOHAIR JUMPER


Blue is definitely one of my favorite colors, besides black. So why not combine them? There are no more rules in fashion and pairing black, blue and brown is definitely not a faux-pas but can actually turn out to be a sophisticated color combination. I bought this mohair jumper from Marina Hoermanseder in spring and secretly wished to fast forward to winter, as I wanted to wear it right away. It is absolutely gorgeous, super warm and works with everything -- whether you're dressing it down with jeans and sneakers or pairing it with a tulle skirt and high heels for christmas! 

By the way, am I the only one who feels like this weekend was over before it even started? I am not ready for work tomorrow and I have so much to do before going to Austria in two weeks. I really need a day between Sunday and Monday or at least one or two hours more per day.  xx

KNITWEAR AND PUFFER JACKETS


My blog is all about Wolfschluckner right now, as I have been working on a new collection for the past few months and I am finally done and ready to shoot it in the studio! So excited about this finally happening, as it's been a while since the last photoshoot. You, tiny Lackofcolor readers, are privileged to see the pieces first of course. 

In todays post you get to see another amazing knitwear piece made by my mom for Wolfschluckner only. She is the fastest and most skilled knitter I know and it is so much fun to create something with her. I usually just tell her what I've imagined myself wearing and then we pick the color, get balls of wool, obviously, because the jumpers are always oversized, super cosy and with a special pattern. She made the hat with the white bobble as well by the way, which takes her like an hour or so ;-) Anyways, the black pants are from last years collection and as comfortable as the jumper so they go perfectly together. I was inspired by my Karate uniform from when I was a teen, hence the tie belt which can be worn lose, in a knot or as a loop and gives them a special feature.

Big chunky knitwear is a necessity for a perfect winter wardrobe, such as down jackets, as they are currently experiencing a big revival. It is funny how puffer jackets used to be the norm, since I grew up in Austria where you basically wore your skiing jacket to school when it was cold. But once I moved to the city and started my blog, those jackets literally puffed (pun intended) away from the fashion scene. I still wore mine quite often but checked and long oversized boyfriend coats were all the rage back in 2013. Luckily, I still have my down jacket, coat and this grey cape from the Italian brand Bomboogie. It seems odd to me that people are into puffer jackets now that it's a trend, but they'll soon realise that it is one of the best pieces to own, especially the light ones work great layered under a coat and take little space in your suitcase when traveling.
Do you own a down jacket? xx
