Zana makes me feel so vain. But I’m not. I promise.
I had met Connie at the Chictopia office and the two of us decided to stop by Harputs to check in on Zana. I had been looking for a statement piece while resisting my ever-present urge to purchase more black and gray. As you can tell from this photo, though, I failed miserably.
I can’t believe what a ridiculously good deal this thing was. Constructed from a lightweight polyester/wool blend crepe, the “Swacket”, as the good folks of Harputs call this wonderful little Franken-garment, basically answers what I ask whenever I wake up: “What do I wear today?” There was a thicker double-faced wool version that was far out of my price range. But I wasn’t really looking for a big heavy coat anyway. The dropped sleeves, over-sized body, and intricate pattern basically means I can turn it upside-down, flip it in crazy ways; I like to think I spend more time playing with this jacket than just “wearing” it.
Also, Zana has pictures of Connie’s monster gloves. Please click and please drool.
