Every now and then it pays to do some “boots on the ground” retail reconnaissance.
A lightweight, non-black jacket is one of those items that’s perpetually on my radar as it seems to occupy that space in my mental Venn diagram where Eminently Useful and Almost Impossible To Find overlap. I never would have given this linen blazer even a first look based on this photo. But up close it’s a lovely light chambray color, not nearly as washed out as it appears here, and has nice shaping via princess seams in the back, which keeps it from being too boxy. Very Ines de la Fressange.
UPDATE: This jacket is also available at Bloomingdales, which not only has a slightly better image but also has 25% off today with code SHOP25.
