Safari. Day 9.
Mr. Bernard’s still miffed about the Jamesons getting the big tent. Milly Montgomery’s husband is back at the Norfolk (migraine), and she “Simply won’t be happy until he joins us, and aren’t these mosquitos dreadful?”
In camp, the guides aren’t impatient (yet), but you can see the edges of professional disposition starting to fray.
You, though. Calm, cool, crisp. Bolstered, perhaps, by having just the right thing to wear.
This jacket. Seen first as a shirt on 19th-century hunters, a case of style emerging from function. Expanding pockets for a map or a compass. Epaulettes. Some had slots for cartridges. All offered clues to a certain narrative, a certain understanding between the wearer and the world.
In time, women began to wear the safari jacket, too, and it said the same things.
Imagine a scenario where a woman is both hunter and gazelle.
This is like that.
