It is the end of summer in the local neighborhood. Doors are still open, people still taking to the street. Seamus, dressed in a Burberry trench coat and Rag & Bone straw hat, points to the teardrop jewels in Harper's Bazaar, reading pages aloud to the locals who have a permanent residence on the outdoor benches.
The summer never reached its full heat; swimmers meander in and out of the pool, the water nearly past-season for wading. A Sonia Rykiel purple cashmere hat and Pleats Please braided scarf are worn poolside over a Junya Watanabe nautical stripe.
Yet another seasonal pleasure in August - sifting through end-of-season merchandise. Seamus decides between two pairs of sunglasses while astride a bicycle. He trades a Chanel blue-tinted pair of sunglasses for vintage oval lenses. Caught between three summer identities: private detective, diligent shopper, and model, which pair of glasses should it be? And more importantly, a Row box purse, or Marc Jacobs black leather satchel? Or a simple Miu Miu wallet, the receipt still inside?
