The Iro Shena jacket and the new basic Helmut tee

photo credit: Yeba
Shena jacket in cream - Iro
Kinetic tee - Helmut Lang (at shopbop)
Burgundy jeans - Topshop (similar here)
Python-effect shoes - Michael Michael Kors

I saw the Shena jacket for the first time just a few hours after buying IM's Monty jacket. Needless to say that I had to wait a few weeks before taking the plunge and adding it to my jackets' collections. The truth is that I had only foreseen one boucle/tweed jacket on my fall shopping list so buying two in the same week didn't seem very reasonable.

The wait was worth it, this jacket is really really really pretty. It is exactly what I expected, soft, warm and very Iro-cool.

If yoy're paying attention you've noticed that I'm not wearing a T by Alexander Wang basic tee which I very often do. I was disappointed by the quality of my last two TbAW tees, they're not by far comparable in quality to my first ones which is annoying. I'm trying out a tee from Helmut Lang's basic line, Helmut, I'll let you know how it goes in the long run but for the moment I think these could be a good replacement.

Last but not least, thanks to the lovely Yeba for the great pictures and don't forget to check out her irresistible blog !

  1. The texture of the jacket is absolutely stunning and that fit is perfect! What a great addition. I'm really loving your burgundy jeans. It's my favourite colour for clothing at the moment so I'm looking to add a pair of jeans or cords myself.

  2. I felt the same about the T by A Wang tees and singlets. The armholes in my singlets drooped so much and they started to pill quite easily. Kind of ridiculous - so let me know how you get on with the Helmut Lang ones.

    Loving the new IRO jacket too - it looks beautiful!

    1. The big complaint that I have regarding tbAW tees is the inconsistent quality. The very first one that I got is perfect, I never paid too much attention on how to wash it and it s like new. The others are very different, ranging from average to low quality. Thanks for sharing ! xx

  5. Coucou Marta !
    Tu es Su-perbe,quelle ligne ! J'aime vraiment énormément cette veste et comme tu l'as associée avec ce slim d'une couleur chaude, le bordeau c'est LA couleur de la saison.
    Dommage pour la qualité de tes Alexander Wang. ça me fait souci, car j'en ai quelques uns aussi.. pour l'instant, je ne les ai pas beaucoup portés ils sont donc en bon état, je verrai sur le long terme avec les lavages. J'espère que tu seras contente avec les Helmut !
    Bonne journée et des bisous

  8. Marta, I love this look! Who would've thought that burgundy pants would be this versatile. I love the color scheme of your outfit. I saw this jacket online but couldn't find it at Harvey Nichols.

  9. Très très belle cette veste Iro.
    J'ai juste acheté la Monty cet hiver. Faut encore que je me trouve un manteau, donc pas d'autre veste à l'horizon.
    PS: ton jeans est superbe aussi

  14. Beautiful jacket. Really love the cream against the burgundy of the jeans. Great match (I think I'm going to copy it! :)
    Those MK shoes are really nice. I thought about getting the black version from my-wardrobe... but thought for too long and when I decided to buy my size was gone. They look very comfortable.
