Country Road Style 1 Raya Rossi The Visual Journal knitwear

Back at the knitwear, but this time with white shirt and pushed up sleeves. Just an interesting way to style your jerseys. I like to break the heavy colour with something fresh and bright. Minimal lines and stark colour palette.. lets see how long I can keep this clean.

ONE KNIT WONDER

Raya Rossi for Country Road Style Knits 18

Let’s talk knitwear, as my favourite season approaches the gloomy light of a late sunrise and early sunset makes for hermit-ing, dinner parties, fireplaces and affectionate clothing. I relish the colder months, like the last piece of chocolate; a time to actually wear pants, socks and soft fluffy jumpers.
I’ve decided to simplify  this season’s wardrobe; instead of spending Winter piling on all the layers, and then peeling them off once you get indoors – the revolution of the cashmere knit came to me while stalking the new Country Road collection.

ARTEM

ArteM AW16 19
I am always so impressed by my friends, their work stands tall in the beautiful city of Cape Town. Most recently life long family friend Adele Stein has launched her second collection under ArteM at the Virgule shoe space in Claremont. An environment more gallery than shop; Virgule plays host to Adele’s latest range of monochromatic separates in high-end fabrications and elegant embroidery. Inspired by the simplicity of Japanese dressing, I think my favourite pieces are her high detailed cuffs, imported sheer socks and tweed jackets. Do yourself a favour and pop into the store this week, the display is OUT of the world! Something out of Berlin or downtown New York for sure.

DAPPLE shadows 0 Raya Rossi

I put on this leopard print coat and it feels like everything is going to be okay. It’s also one of the very few jackets that keeps it’s place all season round in the closet(no seasonal pack-away for you sweet thing). Hanging their like a pillar of support, ready to engulf me in its chaotic print reminding me we are all instinctive.

MOCK CROC

Little green bag Raya Rossi 4
Found this little green bag at a thrift sale last year and couldn’t believe my luck. Genuine leather, with the greatest mock crock imprint and in the perfect Victorian aka Penny Dreadful green. Paired with the witchiest hat of all time, which my friend brought down from & Other Stories end of last year. Funny story about this wintery beauty; I was so excited when I received it for Christmas I actually packed it for my (boiling)hot summer road trip to Coffee Bay – clearly I can’t wait until the appropriate season to actually wear anything new. At least now she can get some fresh air.
