Weekly Capsule 34.1 & SIA: Air FrancePosted: August 24, 2015
This week’s SIA inspiration, the 1960 Air France poster by illustrator René Gruau, is perfect for a breezy summer vacation look. Sadly for me, the school year has started, which means I’m back to work and have to dress accordingly. So after some thinking, I decided to go for a simple chambray shirt + black jeans look to mimic the blue and black in the poster, my belt and brooch are a nod to the yellow hat, my heels are a match to the woman’s tan, and of course, I had to include a hat, even if it’s not a beach hat like the one in the poster (a beach hat would’ve looked a little ridiculous with this, don’t you think?) I wish I could have put together something to capture that French Riviera feel of the poster, but all in all, I’m happy with this.
