Because you took my…TVC 15
It’s been over three years since posting about this label, but Cunnington & Sanderson are one of those labels that are always on my radar. That said, a brief glance at the above look from the C&S A/W 16/17 collection immediately made me think of that shot of the Irene Adler-look alike in a Kristofer Kongshaug coat, confusing me as to just what label I was looking at. I’ll blame it on the very recent viewing of the Sherlock: The Abominable Bride special (in which Ms. Adler was briefly mentioned and pictured), the Sherlock-esque palette of the C&S collection…and the Sherlock colouring book I may or may not have gotten for Christmas. And, come to think of it, my 3-week long Bowie marathon, which has resulted in my brain making more connections between previously-thought-to-be-unconnected things. Though, I must say, the coat below does have a similar-ish 3-gill detail as in Ms. Adler’s coat…
The last two looks below though are definitely C&S through and through, even to my addle[re]d brain, harkening back to their 2009 collection. Although I’m not entirely sure the release of a wool onesie, even one as spectacularly stylish and textured as this, would’ve flown in 2009, i.e. during the reign (?) of the Snuggie.
We’ve come so far.
