Wolcott : Takemoto

i was contacted by Natasha & Joy introducing their new line Wolcott : Takemoto – and what a wonderfully simple and wearable collection it is.

Wolcott : Takemoto was founded by Joy Wolcott and Natasha Takemoto – Seattleites turned Brooklyn dwellers. Natasha studied at FIDM in San Francisco and Joy studied at Seattle Central School of Apparel Design and has interned with Mociun and most recently as a design intern for Rachel Comey for a full season. WT was founded with the notion of creative independence and design integrity with clothing that puts thought towards fit and quality.

of a kind

of a kind is a pretty unique shopping experience in that they feature an emerging designer each week who releases a limited edition item in a small batch for the public to snap up (and they do – everything that i have browsed through is sold out.) it’s a lovely way to find out about new designers, as well as learn about them & their process.

this week they are showcasing the work of sara dudzinsky & her jewellery label better late than never. i was just thinking yesterday how i haven’t bought or worn a pair of earrings in so long, probably because most of the stuff i see in shops are still terrible hangovers from the gypsy/bohemian trend.  that’s one of the reasons why i like her double crystal studs – they are clean & simple with just a bit of quirk.

jumper fabriken

i really like the lookbooks from jumperfabriken. they have a subtle vintage feel that’s all about the styling and details – without relying on fakey photo filters & heavy photoshop tricks. i also like jumperfabriken because they make nice jerseys (sorry, jumpers) – items i am dying to wear again. currently dealing with 38°C heat in my town today.

brrrrrr

as i type this it’s 6.4°C outside (and i’m cursing myself for leaving my fingerless gloves at home). i visited one of my best friends the other day and her gran had left her a genuine fur coat in her will (i think it was… leopard? it was some kind of hectic big cat fur). i tried it on and even though it was lovely and warm i felt really, really wrong wearing it and had to take it off after not even a minute. perhaps if i lived as an inuit wearing fur would be okay, but for now i will just admire how nice it looks and maybe look for a coat of the fake variety.
