OPINION | 20 Euro Leather Jacket


On the wall: The two Violettas by Helmut Newton, Look from Land Lookbook, YSL lipstick packaging folded open

Just above the hip, boxy shape, no additional zippers or frills, thick leather. And only 20 Euros. I found it at a seconhand market last weekend. Besides the fantastic bargains here's another reason(this is me being moralistic) to get vintage or secondhand clothes; I came accross an astonishing bit of data the other day; in the UK an average person disposes 55 kilo's of clothing and textiles each year. 1 kilo of cotton textile requires 11000 litres of water. Can you do the math? (source: imf)
