Good day sunshine


Here's something for today's cloudy Sunday afternoon.

It's all sepia and the sixties on the beach.

Danny wears wool printed jacket, cashmere polo-neck with v-neck sweater, and wool trousers: all by Paul & Joe


Though I find it strange that many times "retro" is rendered with this monochrome treatment.

Danny wears mixed-cotton and wool polka-dot jacket, Viktor & Rolf from Vertice London; cotton shirt, Paul & Joe; jacquard filigree-print trousers, Bottega Veneta; wool socks, Ede & Ravenscroft. Milagros wears wool-mix optic-printed tunic and matching shorts: both by Marni; white and gold-tone plastic flower earrings, Susan Caplan Vintage Collection from House of Fraser; 1970s Vendôme gold-tone and white filigree necklace, Susan Caplan Vintage Collection from Peter Jones; cotton socks, Urban Knit


Our memories do not smudge out details.

Ellie (near right) wears vintage 1960s polyester graphic-print shift, Lanvin from Atelier Mayer; flower corsages in hair, from a selection from Basia Zarzycka; vintage shoes, model's own. Rachel (far right) wears felt paneled lace dress, John Rocha; vintage straw hat, model's own


In reality, we only remember snatches.

Milagros wears jacquard knit dress, multicolor bracelet, double buckle crocodile shoes: all by Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière; Nina Ricci 1960s gold tone and faux turquoise round earrings, Susan Caplan Vintage Collection from Peter Jones. Boy wears his own clothes


And those that remain are ultimately vibrant.

From far left: Hugo wears cotton jersey shirt and intrecciato Cervo Nappa antique-silver Bolo tie: both by Bottega Veneta; wool trousers, Alexander McQueen. Milagros wears cashmere and silk dress, Chanel; 1960s enamel brooch, Susan Caplan Vintage Collection from Peter Jones; cotton socks, Urban Knit. Danny wears cashmere polo-neck and wool trousers, Corneliani


The sun is brighter when we recall the times when we were happy.

From far left: Milagros wears wool dress with chiffon sleeves, Ermanno Scervino; brass and resin necklace, Roger Vivier; lurex tights, Jonathan Aston. Danny wears silk/wool herringbone heritage jacket, silk/cotton poplin shirt, silk/wool herringbone trousers, and silk/wool tie: all by Gucci. Girl wears silk crêpe tunic dress, Céline from Dover Street Market; patent leather shoes, Repetto

The blazer in the 2nd picture is absolutely beautiful.
