We once borrowed a jacket from our British friend for an extended period of time and it completely changed our life--it was a buttery soft black leather jacket by Unconditional and our entire wardrobe and style was utterly transformed by it. This was the first time we learned the importance of investing in nice things and why you should bother to save up and wait. Nevertheless, the British label Unconditional will always have a soft spot in our hearts. This Spring 09 we can't help but see the same qualities in the clothing as we found in our temporary leather jacket. Whether it was the mint green and cool grey color palette, the delicate pleating and hidden zippers, or the classic but edgy silhouettes, we couldn't help but think that many of the Unconditional garments possessed that same magic--Spring 09 or otherwise.
