This season instead of posting about all the predictable designers and how I love their designs (read Rodarte, Jason Wu, Honor), which I do, I wanted to post about two designers that I had never heard of whose beautiful work stood out to me. I’m sure I’m way behind and these peeps have probably been around for awhile but, what can I say, I’m just not in the loop. First is Bora Aksu, which aside from the fact that they appear to be wearing panties on their heads, are lovely modern, yet still feminine designs. Love the yellow as well, though I would look ghastly in it:
Second is Clements Ribeiro, which has more of the vintage lady-like feel that I’m such a sucker for:
This shoot from Vogue Australia , byNicole Bentley , captures looks from the fall campaigns. Too many favorites. I want them all. Hello anonymous benefactor, are you listening? I need all of these…and probably a few more too.
I think the title of this editorial is completely ridiculous but I think the images are beautiful and the clothes, by Natalia Grzybowski Hybrid Collection, are stunning so I’m willing to overlook that one tiny flaw. Via Fashion Gone Rogue
I’ve seen a few of these images before, but I’m not sure I ever knew the photographers name. I think this series makes such a statement about America, and it does it beautifully. According to Getty Museum website : “Jim Dow’s interest in those places where people enact their everyday rituals, from the barbershop to the baseball park, has guided the path of his photographic career. Dow is concerned with capturing “human ingenuity and spirit” in endangered regional traditions–a barbershop with a heavy patina of town life covering the walls, the opulent time capsule of an old private New York club, the densely packed display of smoking pipes in an English tobacconist shop–all artifacts of a vanishing era. “
