Cobalt, azure, electric, Yves Klein blue, call it what you will, it’s a beautiful shade.
Yves Saint Laurent liked it so much he decorated his house and garden in Marrakech with this vibrant hue.
This colour has been on my mind recently. I painted a wall in my boys bedroom in it, and when the sun shines in I imagine myself in the Mediterranean (I have a good imagination). And on Sunday when I was watching the football I remembered that in tournaments past my favourite team was always Italy because of their dazzling blue jerseys (nothing to to with the handsome players, oh no).
So, I have been virtual shopping with a mind for something blue.
First choice, and already ordered, Oasis Cherry jeans
Next, I rather like this Theory open weave jumper.
And a bag? Any excuse for a new bag, there’s Tracey’s lovely Anya Hindmarch Mini Gracie (very popular amongst my stylish friends)
This sleek offering from Raoul which I like very much
Or at a great price there’s mini bagfrom Uterque, a relation of Zara I believe
I may need something more roomy, like this Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier tote
Can’t forget the shoes, I have Tory Burch Revas which are very comfortable, so these ballerinaslook like a good bet
I promise I won’t wear them all at once, otherwise you would need these Marc by Marc Jacobs aviators!
