the feel good factor
To contemplate what our clothes mean to us, and how they make us feel, we talk to eight fashionistas about their first foray into designer fashion.
Clothes mean nothing until someone
lives in them - Marc Jacobs
I needed a jacket
that would stand the
test of time.
I can rely on this jacket in every scenario because it's so adaptable. I can just wear it with a plain white T-shirt, a pair of Carhartt jeans, black and white Vans and my trusty black hat.
I’ve always loved adidas Originals because
the funky prints remind me of festivals and
summer, and these limited edition
tracksuit bottoms are no exception.
With their cosy warmth
and fierce style, they’ve
seen me right on many
winter night out.
They have a sentimental value and I feel really attached to them. Especially because they were in Alexander McQueen’s last collection before he tragically died.
Moschino reminds me of club culture and
bling, both of which I gladly endorse!
I thought a belt won’t go out of style.
Wearing something I
love gives me a special
kind of confidence and
this design is just the
perfect party dress.
I think more than with any other kind
of clothing or accessory, with shoes you really
do get what you pay for.
I’ve always been a big fan of Vivienne Westwood. I’d be overjoyed if I were as bold and wonderful at 76 as she is! Her style is synonymous with flamboyance and wearing this bag makes me feel a little bit more eccentric myself; it gives me a sassy confidence.
There’s a special feeling of achievement to
be able to finally own an item of clothing
that you’ve spent many years lusting
over in magazines.
