today i received a lovely surprise in my inbox – the S/S 2012 collection from italian designer Licia Florio.
Through choices of colour and material the Licia Florio S/S 2012 Collection shows a woman who is not seduced by style dictates, but takes her own road. A season inspired by seawolves, by independent personalities, travel and sailing. Light but concrete fabrics design the silhouette of a woman who really lives the city, free to express her personality. Colours of the earth, beige or bordeaux, build a harmony in combination with materials such as parachute cotton or organza. Round collars, small cuts that just show the skin, light transparencies and forms that envelop, these are the materialisation of clean and essential garments without edges. Each piece takes the name of a knot, which ties in with the fabrics and becomes the symbolic detail of this collection, Seawolf.
what a wonderful lookbook from an always wonderful shop
just when you think that you couldn’t possibly look at another vintage inspired lookbook, along comes one that could actually fool you into thinking the photos are legit – until you take a closer look. i was almost fooled at first glance by this set of photos while browsing Lincoln Taft’s blog. this is the new lookbook for Ralph Lauren’s RRL label.
