So we don’t know about you, but we’re starting to get slightly worried about the state our hair and nails will be in once we get out of quarantine. Having gotten my nails done just three days before all salons closed, there is some fast-growing acryl to get rid off. And that hair was long overdue for a trim before early warnings about Corona started overflowing the headlines of every single newspaper. Needless to say, we’re prepared to come out of this a mess…
A little bright light at the end of this self-isolated tunnel? The statement jackets that took over the streets of fashion week. As more and more of us are in some desperate need of seasonless design to combat sustainability issues in the world of fashion, we are seeing a lot of classic styles reinterpreted with unexpected features that create a feeling of newness. These jackets have us dreaming of being able to go outside again. Not just for our #twomilestyle, but for our (multiple) picnics in parks, rooftop bevs, and festivals in the sun. Can I have an amen?
From leather coats with surprising hints of colour to a reimagined trench, and classic blazers with contrasting checks. We love it all, and cannot wait to bring these pieces into our spring closet. Need some more inspiration? We’ve got you covered. Rotaro would not be Rotaro without a beautiful selection of statement pieces available to rent. Take a look and dream of the day you're free to roam the streets again. Which pieces will you break out of your isolation in?
Sure, pretty much everyone probably has invested in a black leather jacket at some point in time (Guilty as charged). But if you’ve only ever worn black, you are missing out. FOMO to a whole new level, let's say. Colourful leather (and pleather) jackets are what every outfit needs for that little uplift. A plus? They channel that sustainable longevity we all want and need. And you can rent them at Rotaro. Of course.
Rent ‘em: Materiel Tbilisi, Pink Faux Leather Buttoned blazer, from £55. Saks Potts, Tan Shearling Trimmed Leather Jacket, from £80. Stand Studio, Pink Snake-Effect Vegan Leather Trench Coat, from £39.
The Reimagined Trench
The classic trench is probably what you envision when you think of classic London rainy streets in late autumn. It’s a timeless piece that comes back season after season, with new twists and twirls. And right now we are praising the classic trench with innovative and modern details. From statement cuffs, pastel colours, and bold edges. We are here for every single bit of it. Feast your eyes, ladies (and gentlemen). This could all be yours in a simple few steps.
Yes, we all know you’re currently still wearing your pyjamas, fluffy socks, and god forbid that you’re actually wearing a bra. And honestly, who can judge you for that? Not us. But to save yourself from a bit of an awkward situation when your boss invites you to that Zoom call earlier than expected, keep a blazer close. Throw it over those pjs and you'll be looking effortlessly super sharp.
