Spring has sprung and as it does every year, the weather is confused.
For cold-but-it-could-get-warm-later days, I like to layer inter-seasonal basics and right now I can’t get enough of this Jane Sews duster. This 100% linen duster is from the last sale at janesews.co.za. With winter separates in contrasting textures like this leather look skirt from Akedo, it becomes a transitional uniform for kinda cold, kinda warm weather.
A little more on Jane Sews- the brand has principles of slow design at its core. Designs with carefully considered details made in high quality fabrics and small batches using local resources as far as possible. They truly care about where the clothing comes from and where it’s going, with brand transparency for their shoppers. I’d been eyeing a few things from the last collection but when I saw their sale was on, I knew I had to get shopping before it had all gone. Even though founder and designer Amy Venter has a slow fashion focus, her timeless-with-a-twist clothing sells fast. Utilitarian in its versatility, functionality and clean lines, Jane Sews still brings an element of feminity to modern minimalism. And in my previous experiences with the brand, the clothing has lasted years with frequent wears and nothing but good service online and in person.
Here’s to getting through the last of cold till summer hits!
