Apologies for the radio silence yesterday—I’m on a whirlwind trip to the lovely city of Montreal—arrived Sunday, back home today—working on a project that I can’t tell you about right now but which would be seriously cool if it all works out (care to guess exactly what it is in the comments?). Anyway, I’ve got animal prints on my mind, which is odd because I always think of them as more of a fall/winter thing than something you’d throw on when it’s warm out. Still, the following pieces look like they’d work great this time of year. I am borderline obsessed with this crisp skirt, which has a great A-line shape and would be prefect with a simple white tee.
The print on this short-sleeved button-down is nice and light and so summery.
I might wear this zebra-print dress with bright (red, maybe) espadrilles.
This jumpsuit is on the loud side, but I like that about it, and its lines are so pleasingly slouchy.
This skirt’s yellow print is delightfully unpredictable and quite graphic.
I always prefer a scoopneck tee to a crewneck or a V, and the army green here is aces.
I like the contrast of the tonal leopard print with the striped strap on this tote.
A retroish snakeskin-print bra that would look so cute peeking out from under a tank top.
You don’t see good giraffe prints—or really any giraffe prints—all that often, but this one is pretty stellar.
A caftan-ish silk and cotton dress that looks like it’s be perfection on really hot days.
I was scrolling through and thinking, “Nice, nice, nice…” and then I hit upon that giraffe print blouse. Wow. Hesitantly clicked on the link and saw the price and was very happily surprised. Yay!
Video version of the blog with guests. Also, in honor of we need a deep dive into Canadian fashion which seems pretty stellar but largely unknown in the lower 47 that are not NY.
Also meant to say I received my ShopBop Brixton bucket hat yesterday and it is every bit as wonderful as it appears to be when Kim featured it in the bucket hat posting. Highly recommend!
The sandals shown with that first skirt are outstanding and, fortunately, sold out! The snakeskin bra is tempting, but the last time I tried to order from &Other Stories (the black linen tee featured a couple of weeks ago) the web site insisted I wanted the tee sent to Afghanistan. Drove me NUTS (short drive). Ergo I hesitate to attempt another order. And the last caftanish “dress”…way too Golden Girls for me as I’m way too close to being a Golden Girl as it is… As to Montreal…I’d say your project has to do with filming something. Look forward to hearing about whatever it is!
C.W.–You’re right, those sandals in pic #1 really are great. You say they’re sold out. Know who makes them?
Philip Lim https://www.net-a-porter.com/us/en/product/1128139 They might be available on his web site. Haven’t looked. Too tempting!
Changing my Kim guess to podcast given who she was hanging with. Instagram reveals everything, right?!
Thanks for the info, C.W.!
The t-shirt is on its way – thanks! And, only x-small and small (which I am hoping fits!) left.
I just got the Réalisation par Naomi Wild Thing leopard skirt – and love it. $180 so not crazy expensive and very flattering. I know it was all over Instagram and that company steers millennial/young (eg most everything is low cut and/or very mini). I have worn it 3 times in a week. I am not millennial and definitely a GOACA. Add to your list of leopard skirts to peruse.
Montreal, fashion industry in Canada…I see a new Kim France collaboration in your future: the Kim France Collection.
Collaboration with Mitsou?
Hopefully no photo shoot involving a chair and sans vêtements!
(I too use “borderline” in my explanation of things too! )
I love them all
My heart’s fondest wish: Kim is the costume consultant on a Netflix/CBC dramatization of the Louise Penny mystery series.
I’d love to wear one of the skirts with a white tee and clunky sandals (or Greek sandals). Checkin’ all of the boxes today, Kim! *My guess is that you’re in Montreal to prepare Canada for an influx of GOACAs should the Supreme Court F-up women’s rights.
I’m hoping you’ve teamed up with 6397, in hopes of opening up stores in Montreal and then Toronto.
Love animal prints & what a stellar roundup. I am also guessing podcast!!
