Is it just me or have we just fast-forwarded straight into winter? Last month's trip to Marseille is feeling like a lifetime ago. I miss the sunny days drinking rose by the sea and soaking up the late season sun dressed in denim cut offs and some of my favourite vintage pieces.
Late summer sun calls for pieces that feel sort of transitional. I once read an article that said you should match the colour palette of your holiday wardrobe to the place you travel to. And a late season trip to the south of France calls for soft blue-toned colours and nautical touches. A 50s sailor top with shimmery detail and a relaxed structure. Thick cotton 60s sundresses that can be paired with simple baskets and have a breton top thrown over when the evening chill picks up. Before my Tuscany trip, it had been a lifetime since I'd bought anything vintage. So when Rokit asked if I'd like to collaborate before my trip to Marseille, I thought it was a perfect excuse to add a couple of new pieces to my collection.*
From their iconic stall at Camden Market back in 1986, Rokit has spent the last three decades making a name for themselves in the vintage world. And it's easy to see how they've established themselves as the go-to place for well curated vintage that's been preserved in the most incredible condition.
