Does anyone miss the days of Merchant/Ivory film-making?
I wanted to wear anything and everything from Howards End—the generous paisley wraps especially.
If I were to don this fabulous velvet cocoon coat from Alexander McQueen, I could almost hear my gown rustling as I walked through the wet meadow.
But tell me, would Mrs. Wilcox have carried this snappy clutch? (Don't say Jacky would have!)
Here's another view of the clutch. It costs 635 pounds sterling, about $1260 US dollars. Cintra Wilson (the NYT's Critical Shopper) noted that it was available in the McQueen shop in NYC. The coat, however, is available on Net-A-Porter for just below $17,000.
Lovely to look at, I'd say.
