austrian designer lena hoschek‘s spring summer 2011 collection

after assisting vivienne westwood at her london studio, lena hoschek started her own label in 2006 at the age of 24. her collections do not follow trends or the general conception of ‘cool’, they are simply a reflection of what has fascinated her since her childhood: the female ideal of the 40s and 50s, craftsmanship, high-end tailoring, traditional materials and patterns but also rock n’ roll and punk music, tattoos, bad guys and fast cars.

hello cold

i become a serious moaner around summer time. i hate the heat and all i want is to be able to wear boots and jerseys and all sorts of other warm things. ideally the sun must shine but the air should be cold – is that too much to ask? i suppose it is. on top of it all stockholm street style has been banging out the best shots of ladies in winter garb, making me doubly jealous of the northern hemisphere.

brief encounter

most of the time i skip past editorials in fashion magazines because they simply don’t interest me all that much. it takes a lot to make me pause, and this ed from us vogue certainly did. what an odd pairing in daria werbowy and david straitharn, playing the journalist + artist in a ‘brief encounter’ on what is presumably his southwest ranch getaway slash artistic love nest. if you don’t get it yet, this is why grace coddington is so beloved. i mean, i still think ah fashion it’s really all so silly isn’t it – how many outfits does this chick wear for one interview? regardless, it made me smile.

roxanne robinson

roxanne robinson is a graduate from elizabeth galloway whose blog lucy can’t dance i’ve been following for a while. when she posted pics from her graduate show, my eyeballs immediately honed in on that amazing full floral skirt.

roxanne says,

my range likes the beginning of spring & hydrangeas in glass jars. my range is bourgeois & has a penchant for floral bedspreads. my range lives in a house concealed by decay & disintegrating creepers. my range thrives on conversations with intellectuals. my range prefers to drink milk rather than tea. my range spends her days in the garden with her peonies. my range eats soup from pastel coloured tin bowls. my range is conservative, child-like & has a collection of porcelain dolls. my range detests minimalism, preferring to wear every colour at once. my range is the box at the back of your cupboard that holds all your memories & trinkets you cannot let go of.
