Chalayan Spring Summer 2014 Ready To Wear

Australians love summer. Especially Melbournians. We pine all year long for the days of sweltering heat to arrive. But when it finally crash lands, we complain about how unbearable it all seems. It really is a case of “be careful what you wish for”. Stay a little while in the sun, and you literally cook. Turn on the cold water tap, hot water almost scald your fingertips. Going to the beach, you’ll be lucky not to suffer heat-stroke on the way there.

I too, used to crave for summer. But now that I have a 8 week old under my care, and finally realise that too much of a good thing is a bad thing, case in point, UV rays, I spent most of this week hermit-ing and visualising Antarctica.

But of course, if you are a devout worshipper of sun and sand, you’ll pay no heed to my ramblings. Just remember to saturate yourself in sunscreen and cover your pretty visage with a hat. Trust me, you’ll be grateful later.
