prepping for the weekend
Themes are working out so well for me this week, inspiration-speaking.
This morning, I saw these photographs by Elliot Erwitt for Tod's on Habitually Chic, and thought, "Wow, Tod's is doing that 'don't you totally want this lifestyle' thing so well."
It's like Planet Preppy by Ralph Lauren, but better. I think of it as Euro-prep, if that makes any sense. The pictures take it further nicely from the s/s '10 ad campaign -
Just days before, I pre-ordered this online as a birthday gift for a friend -
It's a series of photographs by T. Hayashida documenting preppy style at Ivy League colleges in the US in the late sixties, and I love how the styles have transcended time. A Continuous Lean has some nice scans here. I'm so glad the book has been re-issued. It can be ordered from here and here.
So that's another nice dove-tailing of sartorial bits and pieces for the week. A related post to follow.
