Public School

The mood at the start of each New Year is that of excitement, fresh starts and strangely enough, nostalgia.

For us, the good ol’ days are filled with scenes of running home from one public school – or another – through puddles, flowers (and occasionally a neighbour’s yard) in our A-line skirts, PE class shorts, striped socks and leather school shoes.

This lookbook was an attempt to capture that feeling of freedom, youth & friendship.

Thanks, as always, to Bata for making our play a little easier.
