Spartan

i first posted about Austin based shop Spartan waaaaaay back in 2010! that’s like a 100 years in internet time. so i’ve been excited to share their new lookbook, which i was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of before it launched. they stock items by designers that i love like Crescioni, Erin Considine, Dealtry and a whole host of others that are new-to-me.

We were feeling very inspired by women artists of the 20th century and studied portraits of these women for inspiration. Although our focus in the past has been home goods and jewelry, we are branching it a way that feels very natural to us to few apparel pieces that are easy to wear and great for travel – hats, bags, scarves, wool tunics, oversized sweaters, etc, with the same attention to graceful design and beautiful, high quality materials.

Mono Wardrobe. Monodrobe.

this past winter i realised that almost every single thing i bought was black and i would wear it with white or denim or whatever – but overwhelmingly black, nonetheless. and i was more than okay with that. i am currently mourning the impending loss of my rad MONODROBE with the oncoming heat we’ll be experiencing soon (shudder… or should i say, sweat?)

so it pleases me to see that ASOS is embracing my personal dressing taste, with so much good monodrobe stuff happening over there. MONODROBE. you heard it here first.

just click on the fancy little icons to be taken to the item!

SS 15

my game plan before delving into the vast pool of the SS15 collections was just to click on things that made me think, “show me more!” and that’s what i’m sharing with you. saving you time, saving me time. looks are arranged according to theme, just like my Resort 2015 post.

as far as i know the shows are still going on – but i was too impatient to wait for them all to end, and in all honesty i just could not face looking at any more. i looked at them ALL! there are 108 looks here, folks. i think that’s enough for any sane person.

absolute stand outs for me were The Row (wow wow wow), Rosetta Getty and Marni.

all images thanks to Style.com – which recently had a makeover & is so nice to browse through!

Maison Kitsuné SS15

while browsing through the exhaustive list of SS15 shows (more on that later) i was pleasantly surprised to see that Parisian / Japanese label Maison Kitsuné made their debut at NY fashion week. and even though the reviewer at Style.com gave them a rather catty write-up, i found that the collection made me smile – which is really all i ask from fashion.

creative duo and founders Gildas Loaec & Masaya Kuroki, have conceived a collection immersed in a new concept based on the French women’s ability to choose and balance well-made clothes resulting in a thoughtful and personalised ensemble.

see the entire collection here. ps you should listen to their playlists if you don’t already.
