Hurrah second garment! Knowing that I wanted to try the Jakob next, I mostly got inspiration from this button-up this guy was wearing in the front row of a NY Fashion Week show and from the nude/purple/bruised-skin palette of Lanvin S/S ‘09. Again, I really slimmed it down so I wouldn’t be swimming in the fabric and I also narrowed the collar. Though I think next time, I’ll also lessen the length of the collar point. The white buttons are my favorite!
Purple Poly-Cotton fabric, white semi-pearlescent buttons
