I’m late to the party that is the Muji Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, but it is a lovely lookbook full of monochrome-y goodness. That was terrible. I’ll let these pictures speak for itself. I picked out my favorite looks–some of these I will definitely try to recreate with my own wardrobe.
I would wear ANY of these any day, all season. I like the rich blue skirt in the fourth look–it’s silk cotton; not sure how the washing instructions will be for that. Their wool cashmere sweater was supposedly machine-washable but it definitely shrank on me after cold-washing/air-drying. Must be more careful with wool blends, I suppose.
These three I can somewhat attempt to piece together from my own wardrobe. The look on the left is my favorite. I’ve got a gray open cable knit cardigan from the company itself that evokes that same charcoal chunky knit, I’ve got those Target ankle pants that will do for the sock-showing ankle grazing part (oh and there’s the long MUJI cardigan on the first shot of that collage.) Cannot wait! Even the shoes–remember my old Clarks brogues I was supposed to start wearing again, yeah–don’t forget this time Kristina. Time to dust those off and get them back in rotation; my poor Gentle Souls flats have been working hard all spring and summer and need some TLC.
I also really like the chambray under the breton shirt, though I’m not sure that what I currently own will work, as my chambray shirts are oversized. Also note the subtle double-scarf/shawl action in the bottom right picture. I already have that gray Uniqlo sweatshirt; all I need is to play with the scarves I have at home.
The men’s collection is just as delicious:
I don’t know if I’m more excited about the clothes or the guy wearing them. Swoon at all the grays and blues in this year’s lookbook 🙂
I can’t wait to see this collection out in Hollywood! At any rate, I’m excited by the potential ideas the lookbook suggests–lots of cotton, denim, easy-going fabric, much layering/substitution potential meaning these looks can also be spring/summer-appropriate.
What colors and fabrics call to you in the fall season? Let me know what textures, cuts, or looks have inspired you lately; I like to see what others do!
