And then one day you wake up and feel swallowed by darkness. You look at the clock and no, it’s not an ungodly hour, your alarm didn’t get it wrong, the world has simply refused to light up. Fall has come and turned all the colours into constant greyness.
You can feel it in the air – the chilly breeze that wakes you up quicker than any Arabica, the extra layer of clothing that you have to throw on, and of course the rediscovery of the colour black. All of the sudden, black becomes the new black yet again and the joyous hues you wore only a few weeks ago seem like faux passes of last summer’s naivety.
And there I stood in calm shades of beige and ivory resisting to look at my watch and see that it has just gone fall o’clock. I generally dislike feminine watches, but manly time-tellers I like. It’s my quiet form of rebellion.
Ah yes, the final breezy outdoor outfit before coats, knitwear and scarves kick in. Let me linger in the moment.
UPDATE: Daniel Wellington wanted to treat all pret-a-reporter readers and give a 15 per cent discount on all watches (and wristbands) sold on danielwellington.com until Friday, the 12th of October. If you see a watch you fancy, remember to type in “pret-a-reporter” in the promotion field when making your purchase – this will enable the discount. Happy shopping!
