Nothing trivial about the title:) it is what it is. The simple, unassuming beret. but looks can be deceiving. This piece of accessory is not just any hat. It is in its own right a fashion icon. I grew up as a kid wanting to covet a piece because it simply looks stunning on one's head. It frame syour face and gives your look an instant panache.I cant recall why I wanted it so much. So much so when i found it in a thrift store(my first beret purchase) back in high school I was so thrilled to have it because in our country berets are hard to find. Or maybe, I love berets so much because subconsciously wearing one reminded me of two things: one is Paris, those chic French painters wearing it with their trench coats and sailor shirts. And two, A memory I had back in grade school where i was asked by our teacher to draw our future selves. Funny thing I drew myself with long hair and a french beret with large scaled canvasses adorning my room. But that drawing was a foretelling of my life because you see today, I do have long hair, I do like wearing berets, and I do paint but somehow my life brought me closer to my real passion:fashion. That beret brought me closer to where we both belong...in fashion:)

about the look:
pairing this beret with a modern yet nostalgic nod to Flemish painters and French mid century looks. I played around black and whites with a touch of dark brown. Its an ode to the self portrait i did when i was young.
