The bomber jacket was ‘the trend’ last year! It was just like the kimono this year, everyone had it. A light pink double-sided bomber was all over the fashion channels. Due to its vintage look which reminded me of my childhood, I became smitten with the bomber. And speaking about childhood, yesterday a child bit my kimono. While drinking a coffee and debating serious subjects with my friend, I felt a sudden pain in my arm. Cute curly blond boy was proudly showing me his teethes. My friend assumed he liked the kimono. I concluded is time to give the kimono a break and fish out my bomber from the wardrobe. Otherwise hazards like this one may unexpectedly occur.
Hanging in one of Den Bosch’s boutiques, this jacket seemed perfect for my growing collection of printed items. Created by the Danish label Numph, I liked it even more when I read the story behind the brand. They want to create clothes for nymphs: fairy-tales creatures, fearless but vulnerable, beautiful and independent. Should I say more? As if this bomber was particularly created to be worn with a t-shirt that says ‘wild inside’. The designers from Numph like to experiment with patterns, shapes and details. I would however add that they remain in the comfort zone of the Danish design. The print is bold but the colors are used demurely.
The bomber is so versatile because it is double-sided tailoring. The girl in the boutique told me she really likes the black side. I however like it because of the palm-trees; they make me think of vacation even when it rains in the Netherlands. Were you surprised that it took me so long to mention weather? Have a great week!
