    It is such a relief that beret wearing weather has returned. Our atypically ultra hot summer in UK this year was not conducive! Here I am enjoying the cooler Autumn last month in my Denim BA from Daan.

    Spent the day with my daughter at Montsalvat located in Eltham Victoria which is Australia’s oldest continuously active artists community.
    Wearing my go-to beret the B.A in Bordeaux.

    Nice! But why is she not wearing a beret pray? She’s an artist!

    At work trying to find a solution to a problem. No worries, my thinking beret Elósegui Super Lujo saved the day. ;)

    Celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary last week, we spent 5 days walking, climbing and cycling in Central Otago - an incredible luxury, first time being away from the kids for longer than 2 nights in almost 20 years!
    upload_2018-10-19_10-44-37.png
    A stunningly beautiful land; NZ's coldest winters/hottest summers; empty, rugged terrain; high mountains; clear fast flowing rivers; old goldfields and hidden ghost towns.
    upload_2018-10-19_10-46-43.png upload_2018-10-19_10-46-52.png
    Berets taken along were my old time favourite Elósegui Super Lujo (khaki); a Tarte Alpin and, the local saying "4 seasons in a day" in mind, a cotton Tolosa Guarda Pampa.
    upload_2018-10-19_10-42-47.png
    Cycling the
    Otago Rail Trail, reluctantly wearing a fluorescent bright green cycle helmet, I had a rather unpleasant (and painful) encounter with a magpie - had I worn my beret, I'm sure nothing would have happened.

    And in the most unlikely place to meet a colleague bonetaire, I had the enormous pleasure to meet Bod Ldeberry; a self proclaimed old hippie who has been living in his small mud-brick cottage for more than 3 decades, planting trees, daffodils and making felt berets! We actually share a few more similarities than berets...

    By coincidence, we came across the birthplace and childhood family home of one of my heroes (and fellow beret wearer):
    Doug Jolly. A great man who got very little recognition for what he has done during his lifetime (and only recently rectified).

    To share my love of the 'tarte' and the (Southern) Alps, for the first time ever, the Boneteria Aotearoa Grand Foulards Alpins are on SPECIAL!
    The best of the best, Chasseurs Alpins berets in the most comfortable, highest quality version available.
    For the remainder of this week only, as long as stock lasts, from $95.00 @ $72.50!

    OTAGO Journey,
    Dann, an amazing trip with amazing people and photos.
    Bod, the simple living hippie, is someone I want to emulate.

    Just got my Chyldish 31.5cm berets today.
    Airmail from NZ to Oregon is 10 days.
    I got a russet (deep maroon) and an indigo.
    The berets are a nice mid weight for the fall.
    The russet is a very dark wine color and
    the indigo is the color of newly washed jeans.
    How did Childish become Chyldish?

    Last night I watched the 3rd film in the cycle of Belle & Sebastian films (or better said, the remake of the original 1960's version in black&white that I watched during my childhood).
    upload_2018-10-30_17-0-20.png upload_2018-10-30_17-0-28.png
    The 3rd sequence is, as so typical for sequences, a bit dragged out and predictable, but the stunning scenery of the French Alps Maritime (and a great number of berets!) easily make up for that.
    upload_2018-10-30_17-5-5.png
    César, Sebastian's foster grandfather, is a great role-model for "tartes Chasseurs Alpins", donning what I believe to be an Auloronesa in brown (as per the screenshots above and below).
    upload_2018-10-30_17-9-25.png
    The Belle & Sebastian adventure began in 2013 when six-year-old Sebastian and his dog Belle (a Great Pyrenean Shepherd) sought to foil a Nazi attempt to capture French resistance fighters. As the name suggests, such an incredible friendship between boy and beast continues in this third installment of the film series, Belle & Sebastian, Friends for Life.


    Picking up where its predecessor left off, Sebastian (Félix Bossuet) is now aged 12, and has decided not to follow his father and Angelina to Canada, choosing instead to remain in the French Alps with César (Tchéky Karyo) to watch over Belle who’s now become mother to three beautiful pups.
    upload_2018-10-30_17-15-48.png upload_2018-10-30_17-15-55.png

    When a stranger arrives claiming to be Belle’s rightful owner, Sebastian finds himself in a position where he must protect his best friend and her little ones.

    upload_2018-10-30_17-17-20.png
    One detail in the film I really enjoyed seeing, was the shot of the village school's corridor. Not just the typical hooks for coats against the wall, but double hooks, so that the beret can hang on top over the coat!

    upload_2018-10-30_16-49-17.png
    And to "celebrate" children's berets (one can't start young enough, especially in these times), this week on Special the Le Petit QuiOui berets; 11 colours and only $27.50 (as long as stock lasts).
    Mind, these berets suit and fit any adult with a liking of small diameter berets too!
