Pippa Middleton And The Cricket Craze Sweeping Fashion

Seeing how many aspects of American culture we Brits love to mock or deliberately misunderstand – their crazy foodstuffs (cronuts and ice cream burritos) and their eccentric celebrities (hello Justin Beiber), it seems like now it’s time for the US of A to get their revenge – via the medium of Pippa Middleton’s column in Vanity Fair

With Pippa posing in fetching fancy dress in sunlit grassy locations on the pages of the revered celebrity mag, readers are now invited to marvel and guffaw at the strangeness of ‘British culture’ as Pippa explains it. This week it’s the turn of cricket to get the P-Mid treatment.

‘As a former member of the cricket W??s (wives and girlfriends of players), I have many happy memories of afternoons spent lying on the grass and hearing the satisfying clunk of leather ball on willow bat,’  Pippa Middleton writes from London in her second dispatch for Vanity Fair, in which she describes our national game as: ‘the beloved and befuddling British game of cricket.’

On the subject of cricket uniforms, Middleton enthuses, ‘From Imran Khan to England’s current captain, Alastair Cook, there is a tradition of the sultry cricketer powering in from the boundary or effortlessly gliding a ball to the boundary, tousled hair blowing in the breeze, his whites signifying a purity of action—oops, I almost forgot myself. Better have a cup of tea.’

We have to say though, although you won’t catch us wasting precious sunny days watching the slow-mo action at Lords, or lusting after the England team (sorry Alastair) although we certainly wouldn’t say no to adding a sexy oversized cricket jumper to our summer wardrobe. After all, if Karl Lagerfeld included them in Chanel Resort collection 2014 then it can’t be wrong.
