“Übergangsjacke” – now there’s a word that will almost instantly kill my desire to shop. The expression sounds better in English, yet the image I have of transitional jackets is of something practical, possibly rainproof, likely dull. I should say: had that image. Because Saviana and her college jacket from French brand Gat Rimon changed my perception of transitional dressing. The jacket’s casual, yet still dressy, thanks to the silver sleeves, it’ll keep you warm on cool evenings and be light enough to wear in the sun.
Saviana got hers at Wald, one of my favourite shops in Berlin, which is run by the lovely Dana and Joyce. They recently opened an online store. Unfortunately, this jacket is already sold out. But! They stock another one by Gat Rimon in silver. And the last word that will pop into your head when you see it will be “Übergangsjacke”. Promise.
