Zara April 2011 lookbook

Here's our take on Zara: they have a lot of great pieces at decent prices, and they change their stock constantly to keep things fresh. Their success rate at slightly modernizing the traditional is surprisingly high. You just have to overlook the fact that their grungy hipster models are wearing this stuff completely wrong. A couple of highlights from the latest collection: Left: A really beautiful pale blue linen blazer with patch pockets [$160]. THIS is how you do lapels—broad and with a high notch up on the collarbone. F**k you, "Mad Men". Middle: Wonderfully textured knit blazer in a subtle taupe [$90]. Right: Double-handled leather travel bag [$190]. Loving the general suitcase shape rendered in a completely unstructured style.
