So off I trotted to the Tim Soar Buyers Event last night. With the intention of browsing rather than delving into my depleting coffers, there was just too much on offer to leave without a purchase in hand, and I strolled out the proud owner of a pair of double layered shorts and a leather t-shirt from Tim's Spring/Summer collection, not to be delivered until February.
Tim's wasn't the only collection on offer and it was a struggle not to indulge in a few more bargains. Australian labels Stolen Girlfriends Club - all ripped velvet jeans and studded shirts - and Alpha60 - oversized t-shirts emblazoned with Woody Allen and Gene Hackman - were all calling out for a space in my wardrobe, but it was Zambesi, a label I've never encountered before whose shout was the loudest.
A New Zealand label dealing in both mens and womeswear, Zambesi with their desire to "epitomize individual spirit, redefining convention with an ironic practicality" offered a plethora of twisted classics; sheer bombers, elastic harnesses and undershorts, boxy blazers with sheer sleeves, and a vivid red suit - the perfect separates my wardrobe is crying out for. Having succumbed to the charms of Tim Soar's collection, I couldn't stretch to Zambesi, but today - lets call it a clothes hangover - that dreaded feeling of buyer's regret is creeping in.
