We're going through those weird spring weather swings: sunny and seventy one day, rainy and forty the next. You can't really wear a heavy jacket but you can't go without one, and you can't quite break out the sandals, but the boots are getting too warm. The daily conundrum now of what to wear (all the more ridiculous since I work from home and could frankly wear my pyjamas if I wanted to but refuse to in order to maintain some sense of diplomatic dignity and productivity) reminded me of the spring fashion spread I saw in March's Monocle magazine. I promised to hunt down the full set of pics and here they are, shot in Japan's Ohori Park in Fukuoka. Fitting since Tyler Brule seems to be fully enamored with anything Japanese, much as I am enamored with anything Tyler Brule (ego or no ego). In any case, note that there are multiple looks that look diplomatically cute in rain or shine.
