My MANy Bags Lookbook #07

College Cool

Inspired by the 'school bag' style of Proenza Schouler's ultra cool PS1 bag...I have come up with an outfit that reflects college chic in winter. Think Harvard or Cambridge University in the fall.

Tweed jacket and wooly combinations are essential for insulating against the cold, but I have paired Burberry Prorsum's carrot leg wool pants with Ann Demeulemeester 'biker' style buckled leather trainers for some edginess. By tucking in the pant legs into the trainers, it will achieved an equestrian riding look but in a more contemporary and 'bad boy' way:-)

Marc By Marc Jacobs 'fingerless' gloves lends an air of nonchalance while DSquared2's checkered shirt and YSL's croc embossed leather belt adds to the mood of traditional college elegance from college boys of yesteryear.

Loving the outfit! Unfortunately, I go to Harvard and I've never seen anyone on campus walking around styled like this. Sad :(

Hi Couture should be the first to bring some fashion to your school campus!:-) Harvard will then be a place for the intellectually fashionable!:-)

And MANyfans...thanks! Hope the tips are useful. I got a N.hoolywood vest tonight with a diagonal cut on the back. It's awesome..very interesting.

I currently need a black shoulder bag.. I like the Proenza Schouler's (PS1) bag... Any idea where to get this? or another option for shoulder back in black?

Btw I have no idea where else to post this, as no shoutbox or something like that on your page..
