After a few weeks of vacations far from my usual temptations and, as a consequence, a full break on shopping, I'm back to my old routine: browsing on my favorite online shops made me put a bull's eye on Acne Studios "sophia" puffer.
I'm really really feeling this understated down jacket -which reminds me a bit of Isabel Marant Etoile's Nam jacket from last season- for its classic with a twist cut: the slightly asymetrical fastening, curved and longer back.
It's the kind of cosy and practical outerwear that (nowadays) would fit so well in my urban winter uniform.
A few years ago, my eyes wouldn't even have stopped on this kind of jacket- I would have certainly deemed it too basic, bland, not "stylish" enough. Whereas now, its apparent simplicity combined with design-savvy touches and in the end its daily utility are what appeal to me.
One thing though would without a doubt remain constant between then and now is that no matter my appreciation for this jacket, its price is a real downer...
Did you have a change of heart on an item recently? Is there anything you'd like to wear now that you would never have considered before?
