Snapshots No.13 : Neoprene + Scuba

9 Apr 2013



01 // 02 // 03 // 04 // 05 // 06 // 07 // 08

Life moves on in its neoprene road, albeit I'm rewinding back to the moment when my sister and I, owned matching neoprene black biker jackets with silver striped arms during high school. There was nothing back then anything remotely like these jackets, I haven't a clue what an earth possessed us to buy them, I think I should ACCUSE my mum who paid for them, but yeah! we wore them from time to time..but note not on the same day! 

It never occurred to me that these jackets were made out of neoprene material. Never did I fathom the sort of fabrics I wore, the terminology alone would be like a dull science lesson, I'm still apathetic today with textile fashion terminology.  But I was partially aware....I THINK! the jacket had a scuba diving look & feel to it.

Alas, never was it worn once again after entering College at 16. Hmmm I'm sorta nostalgic & disappointed that we got rid of them, though I don't recall when and how, but in hindsight it was probably a blessing. ~ I'm pinky promising, I will don the neoprene once again !

  7. I am loving the scuba knit everywhere! Neoprene's my favorite fabric, so it's wonderful to see a more wearable & lighter option.

  17. I am so here for neoprene! I really want a skirt or jacket made of the stuff, but I haven't found a piece yet that's made me say, "Yes, this is the one" so I'm still holding out... someday my "neoPrence" will come.

    P.S. Still thinking about the music thing and I will get back to you with some ideas (something fast and easy, I know you're busy) :D
