|Jeans Unionbay - Red sweatshirt vintage Benetton - Emerald green velvet loafers Zara - Grey vintage bag Salvatore Ferragamo|
The Benetton brand name reminds me of high school. I would frequently walk into their flagship store, which always seemed to be on its last days sales, yet it never closed.. Well it did, but like 15 years later ;)
Not only did I love their minimalistic windows, the perfumes, the ads and colours but also the layering which of course I never dared to copy in our less hot and super hot weather. A thrift find, this is one of two Benetton garments in my closet. The other is a striped t-shirt I bought when I was fifteen years old and that I still hold on to, yet its never worn outside of my home because its literally falling apart.
Lately, I have been going for this sweatshirt for visits to cold hospital rooms, chilly movie theatres and my cold office on a flu day...which happens to be today.
