Summer Hits

The most vivid memories I have from my childhood are almost all during summer. It’s not difficult to remember why, when you’re a kid with two months of summer holidays and no school it’s quite easy to end up playing the hopscotch* ’til late evening with your neighbors, rolling on the hill of some park with your hair half-covered in dry grass, and waiting for dinner time while you eat an ice-cream without your mom’s permission (what she didn’t understand was that, after all that exercise you did, what harm could a popsicle do before dinner?).

Every summer is different, and over the years I’m even more certain of it. The places you visited, the people you met and, yes, the clothes that accompanied you during those days of full enjoyment and full relaxation. The kind of clothes you’ll see in your photos in 10 years and will think: Did I really went outside looking like this?, as if it were one bad ex-boyfriend memory.

So, as a semi-farewell to summer and my summer holidays, I decided to collect a few of the garments that marked the season like gingham and little black dresses, objects and scents that will define the memories of my summer. If you had to do your own selection, which object would lead your list?

Los recuerdos más vívidos que tengo de mi niñez son casi todos durante el verano. No es difícil de recordar el por qué, cuando eres un niño y tienes dos meses de vacaciones sin escuela es fácil terminar jugando toda la tarde a la bebeleche* con tus vecinos, rodar por las colinas de un parque con el cabello cubierto de césped seco y esperar la hora de cenar mientras te comes un helado a escondidas de tu mamá (lo que ella no entendía era que, después de todo ese ejercicio que hiciste, ¿qué daño podría haber hecho una paleta helada antes de la cena?).

Cada verano es distinto, y con el paso de los años me queda más claro. Los lugares que visitaste, la gente que conociste y, sí, la ropa que te acompañó durante esos días de goce, disfrute y relajación total. Aquella ropa que verás en tus fotos dentro de 10 años y pensarás: ¿De verdad me atreví a salir a la calle vistiendo esto?, como si de un mal ex-novio se tratase.

Así que como semi-despedida al verano y a mis días de vacaciones, he decidido recopilar algunas de las prendas que marcaron la temporada como guingán vestiditos negros, objetos y esencias que definirán los recuerdos de mi verano. Si tuvieras que hacer tu propia selección, ¿qué objeto encabezaría tu lista?

*Also known as scotch-hop, peever, escargot, potsy, himmel, etc.
*También conocida como rayuela, la mariola, el luche, el avión, etc.
