Urban jungle

It's hard to deny that this Kenzo sweatshirt appears to still be high demand, with retailers not being able to keep up to the demand and even going as far as to re-order more stock.  But even I have to admit that the mass amount of viral photo's and people wearing this sweatshirt in all it's varied designs and colour ways (which yes I've just added to), makes it feel a little mainstream.  If anything the popularity of the sweatshirt initially deterred me. I questioned whether I should buy it due to feeling that any form of originality it once had has already been and gone.  However, this did push me to think further prior to purchasing it in respect to how I could style it differently to what's already been done. Make it at least a little my own.  A pair of baggy shorts didn't seem to be on the top of most people's list and worked well for a wearable and more lifestyle appropriate option considering we were on our way to see a movie then on to dinner. 

Obviously you can tell by now that I took a purchasing punt, it arrived and all thoughts of doubt were lost.  The embroidered design is amazing!  Even if some say that it's no longer unique, let's just rack it up to me being happy and another blog with another post with that Kenzo sweatshirt, albeit the new season version.

  6. I really like this top and can understand why you're drawn. I love your outfit pairing and I have to say I haven't seen anyone else wear the top with the shorts like you - I like it. I like it a lot actually :o)

  7. I love the way you've styled it Mandi. I don't really wear sweatshirts because I feel like they make me look 'shapeless' even if I'm wearing something fitted below. Perhaps it's also because some sweatshirts are 'tooo' baggy, even the cuts for the xs look too shapeless on me :/ But you - you wear them so well. I love how you've teamed it with stripes. If you put all those pieces in front of me I would have thought it would make too 'busy' an outfit but on you it comes together perfectly!
