While I finally cut out my Burda blouse. . . goddaughter had a good London Fashion Week and after New York and London, she's now doing Paris. Kanye West attended the Katy Eary show "walked" to his music, so here is H. closing the show in the last evening dress as Mr. West approves.

My eldest brought me home a beautiful silk crepe de chine from India in teal blue and tobacco paisley which is going to be this blouse from Burda (above), although the ruffled one (below) was a runner-up. The October issue of Burda is crammed with classics (if like me, you've already fashioned your way through the 70's, it's a bit of a retread season, nonetheless.) There are classic full-length coats, fitted blazers, draped blouses, straightforward trousers.

I was recently taken with this coat, which pushed a lot of buttons (60's silhouette, useful black fabrication, touch of leopard glam) as I considered my new autumn "coat sew." Burda slyly underplayed this one in their recent September issue, making it simply part of an animal print feature:And then I caught this in a recent edition of InStyle (I was just buying it for my daughter, honest, officer!)
and I start to see the idea. When you look at the YSL, Carven and Vuitton "gorilla sleeves," they certainly carry the King Kong conviction that Burda has shied away from, but I'm tempted.
