As I mentioned last week, I had a great week for post while I was ill, including the latest Manequim magazine! Since Brazil is in the southern hemisphere, we get some wintery clothes, though there are still a fair amount of sleeveless options that would work for British summers, too!
oh. my. god. Plus sized lingerie!!! And they’re fantastic, wearable, and sexy designs, too – a bodysuit, bra, and panties in size 50 (B110cm W94 H116, just fyi). I’m terribly jealous that these aren’t in my size!
The designer pattern section this month is Jil Sander, whom I totally love! We get patterns for slim trousers (in multiple sizes!), the red batwing jersey top, and the blue dress with double-layer draped bodice. On top of the great designs, I actually really love the styling here, too – solids in vibrant colours, minimalist aesthetic, and letting the clean lines speak.
This issue also contains a massive coat feature which has a great variety of basic styles, but it was this biker jacket made in wool coating and leather that really stood out to me.
And finally, from a feature focusing on famous couples of progressively older ages (including Rachel Weisz & Daniel Craig for the “40s couple”!), I actually like the pattern for Michelle Obama’s dress better than the “inspiration” one she’s actually wearing in the photo!
I had to look on Wikipedia because I couldn’t believe Mrs O was in her 50s yet… and she’s not, she’s only just turned 49! How cheeky!
