Desert Weaving

Unbeknownst to most tropic-dwellers, a phenomenon called the Indian summer occurs in temperate countries, in autumn, wherein the temperature rises to nearly summer-like heat, usually after there had been a cold spell. Indian summer this year happened to fall right on fashion week, and though many a layer-lover was dismayed (or found himself rendering fat in tweeds and cashmeres), I did what any sensible island boy would do: shed layers. Inspired by the desert-like weather, I wore what I thought a fashion-kooky desert nomad would wear: sumptuous sand-colored suede shoes, white linen, and a waistcoat in a somewhat Arabic print–sans shirt.

Clarks had sent over these Desert Weavers—what look to be a cross between the iconic Wallabees and Desert Boots, but with that distinctive hand-stitching all around the sides. They have been my absolute favorite shoes for the past few weeks. You know I love a beige suede shoe, and the chunky, almost creeper-like crepe sole makes these quite current.

When it’s hot outside, the wrist party stays home. Sometimes it’s nice to make a statement with one special piece.
