The 'Felpato Shirt' by Haider Ackermann

This oversized ‘Felpato’ (‘brushed material’ in Italian) shirt by Haider Ackermann has a brushed felt texture. The shirt is in a bold washed International Klein Blue (IKB) shade: IKB is a deep blue hue first mixed by the French artist Yves Klein and comes from its heavy reliance on Ultramarine. IKB was a key colour in both Haider Ackermann and Givenchy’s SS16 shows and is a brilliant statement tone for the warmer months. Both the wash and texture of the Felpato shirt strongly resembles that of a classic French ‘Chore’ jacket (which I have been on the hunt for) whilst the cut reminded me of a baggy painter shirt that you could imagine Picasso throwing on…although you wouldn’t want to get paint on this piece...

Music Streaming / May Playlist

Last summer I shared my first curated playlist on Apple Music, along with my initial thoughts on trialling the streaming service (view post here)… Since then I eventually had to bite the bullet and subscribe to the service, which has ran along side my Spotify subscription. Despite having access to both Spotify and Apple Music’s entire catalogue of music, I found myself less interested in discovering and listening to new tunes than ever. This was entirely due to being in limbo between the two and not having one source for my music. With the release of Kanye West’s new album: ‘The Life of Pablo’ (TLOP), my music streaming service predicament was exacerbated. In typical Kanye style, he released the album exclusively on Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal
