As with all Bless collections of which I wholeheartedly am a cheerleader for, Bless's autumn range shows how form and function can work together to suggest new solutions for living your life amongst the adjusting climate and world. The Bless team notes that this collection, entitled Whatwasitagain, reflects "the nonchalance of the clothing within so many other exciting things that go on." The pieces are distilled to a core utilitarian purpose, and in this case, to keep you super cozy! Puffy vests come with built-in scarves, as do pants that tie at the ankle vs. the neck, sleeves that form their own outerwear, and a trenchcoat that can be stored in two halves inside boxing gloves. The classic Eram sock boots also make a reappearance in two salt & pepper shades!
During the Nº40 presentation, models punched the "workoutcomputer", which was Bless's idea of balancing mental and physical fatigue in the everyday office setting. One punch for a dot, a kick for a question mark...writing emails would suddenly be more of a workout then running on the treadmill!
