I have a thing with train stations. Especially old train stations, or abandoned ones. They evoke my wanderlust, make me think of past times, wonder what encounters had already taken place at the platforms. Train stations are hectic places, loud and crowded and rushed. They are places of joy for the people that start their long awaited journey or are greeted by their loved ones when they arrive. They also are places of sadness, people have to say goodbye to one another, had to say goodbye in the past, to their husbands that went off to war, their children they had to send away. Train stations can also be places of filth and dirt, located in dubious areas. They provide shelter for stranded people, are a place where they can gather and hang out, drinking, waiting for time to pass.
We shot these outfit pics at a train station in Graz, it was very windy and the skies were grey, dull with heavy clouds, but I loved the atmosphere. It was rather cold so I was wearing a feather vest on top of my leather jacket, and I could have needed a scarf as well tbh 😉 My hat threatened to fly away, my hair was blown right at my face, but it was quite fun and I really like how the pics turned out because there’s movement in them. It’s finally time to layer clothes again, and as much as I dislike the cold, I’m very much into fall styles: lots of wool and cashmere, leather pants and jackets, boots and lace-ups with sturdy soles, long scarves, hats and beanies, and my favourites: oversized woolen coats. I’m sure you’ll see a lot of those here on the blog the next months. In this outfit though, I’m wearing my leather jacket by Urban Code. It’s really „worn“ already (especially at the cuffs), but I still love it, it’s so soft and slouchy!
