NYFW Coach 1941: Stranger Things and T-Rex Sweaters

14 Sep

A quick New York Fashion Week check-in because this Stranger Things front row pairing deserves a post of their own especially as the sweater I have long been coveting makes an appearance.

Winona Ryder was joined by co-star Millie Bobby Brown at the Coach 1941 Women’s Spring 2017 show and this is making me want more of them together when Stranger Things returns for season 2.winona-ryder-and-millie-bobby-brownThere’s a lot of affection here and as with Kiernan Shipka before her I am already aware that Millie Bobby is way cooler than I ever was at such a young age (and am now). Winona is always the coolest.

Now to the T-Rex sweater and this is a variation of one we featured in a Fantasy Costuming post this time last year after the Coach show (for Gina on Brooklyn Nine-Nine). Another version of this item has also graced these pages courtesy of Michael B. Jordan and the design Ryder is wearing is from the menswear collection.

And now for a selection of the different Coach T-Rex items I would love in my wardrobe:

The actual new Spring 2017 had far too much sheer for my liking and you can see the whole collection here.

Music Monday: A Hazy Shade of Winter on Stranger Things

18 Jul

Stranger Things is here for all your coming of age movie nostalgia needs and the new 8-part Netflix series delivers on the early 80s front on a variety of levels. The music is one thing that instantly stands out blending a tension building synth score with a variety of standout songs including The Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go” threading throughout. Stranger ThingsOne standout moment comes at the end of the second episode when we smash to the credits just as the guitar kicks in on The Bangle’s version of the classic Simon & Garfunkel track “A Hazy Shade of Winter.” Simon & Garfunkel have a special place in my heart and I have been listening to them for as long as I can remember – they were a staple cassette choice in car journeys – and I am always thrilled to hear one of their tracks getting used; cover version or original.

Even though you will want to click straight on the next episode (because whoa that ending) and Netflix might even autoplay (as it rudely tried to do with me) take a moment to enjoy this song choice. Or click on the video below.
