The khaki jumpsuit always reminds me of the 1970s. When mainstream fashion was shunned for second-hand clothes, military garb and DIY. When the political climate was unpredictable and civil rights, world peace and protest marches prevailed. Sound familiar? I’m not protesting here, I’m on my way to London Fashion Week. Taking a Casually Glamourous approach by juxtaposing the Military Onesie with the Once in a Lifetime Tuxedo jacket and Gucci loafers. The tux is another icon of the 1970s – thank you, Yves Saint Laurent.
Bumped into my friend Navaz at London Fashion Week note how the colours we’re wearing mirror each other…
As my military jumpsuit is quite big and baggy, I’ve been reining it in (and draft-proofing) with a leather belt. I spotted this picture on Pinterest, today. The caption says it’s from a 1971 copy of Elle magazine:
Long live Khaki Malarkey.
