I have had a love affair with Hong Kong since forever and part of this love affair includes embroidery. Embroidered anything to be precise.
My first trip to Hong Kong at the age of ten was an eye-opener. Hong Kong was a very different place in those days and the quest for embroidery far easier than it is today. Hong Kong is a fabulous fast-paced city with an eye for the modern rather than the traditional.
I understand desire for change and progress, but my love for the old-style continues.
I have had a crush on the side stripe for a while now.
There was a great pair of velvet track style pants in my wardrobe with satin stripes for some time. They worked in so many ways, until they didn’t. That was more about a fabric split than a style malfunction.
A new pair is definitely in order.
Let’s think of these trousers as an addition to our ‘black and white’ dressing rather than as humble athletic pants.
That ship sailed a while ago.
The side stripe pant may have its origins in sportswear but it is a pant to be worn everywhere and in a variety of ways.
