Wallis Brightly Striped Linen Blazer

This light linen blazer from Unicorn is one that I've worn a lot this summer, when I've needed to take the chill off mornings and evenings. I like its cheerful colours.

Wallis still exist, but they don't make such colourful clothes any more. I know this, and I know the blazer is 24 years old, because yesterday, someone told me how nostalgic it made her feel. She'd bought such a jacket, exactly the same style and size, when her now 25-year-old daughter was one year old. She'd loved it — but somewhere along the line between multiple house moves, it got lost. And Wallis discontinued the line.

Which is a shame, because I'm sure people would buy it. A few weeks ago, the owner of a stall in the local market told me that a lady saw me shopping there the previous week. A few minutes after I'd left, she asked him, should he see me again, to ask me whether I'd sell her the blazer.
