Style behind Glass

The gardens in this suburb on the edge of Paris, or all that one sees of them, are small, but the trees that grow there are independent of any relevant measure. They live, by all appearances, as nature ordains, unconfined and unrestrained, ignoring boundaries, brushing against windows and balconies. Cherry trees whose height often exceeds a garden's length, are suddenly heavy with blossom. The weather man has predicted temperatures that will barely nudge into double figures all week. April in Paris is a notion that hasn't spread to the boulevards, the vibrancy that it normally delivers nowhere to be seen. This city and its people have resilience ingrained in their DNA, but what can be done about the weather? One can't dress for sunshine when the rain won't stop, and there's little room for style under a flapping waterproof.

The shop windows are already moving into summer stock, bright in burnt oranges, sky blues, but they represent life behind glass.

How do the fashionistas cope in times like this? Do they stand perplexed before an open wardrobe, taking out, putting back, taking out again in a different colour?

Hang everything, one lady suggested, and colour code for weather.

Her intense looking friend demurred: actually I colour code for mood, said she.

What were the chances, I wondered, of both appearing in the same outfit. Quelle horreur!
