Sofi Wolf SS14

i love this lookbook for Sofi Wolf because it’s quite cleverly set in the Met, officially my favourite art museum since our recent visit to NYC. especially that beautiful room in the fourth picture – i wandered in there and found myself alone, surrounded by Klimt, Mucha and Odilon Redon (my favourite!) …in a city, and a museum, that is usually filled with people it was nice to savour a moment of quiet with such beautiful works. the lookbook was put together by Lydia Fine and Tony Blahd.

Our Spring/Summer 2014 collection heralds a new panoply of optical and visceral sensations. Inspired by a view overlooking the breathtaking New York City Highline, we chose to celebrate our surroundings in our prints: plants, people, buildings, crisp turquoise sky blues tamed by dusty roses, vibrant Emerald City greens and even the impossibly haunting lavenders of the sun setting over the Hudson River.

Orla Kiely Spring 2014

i have never been the biggest Orla Kiely fan, i find her designs often just a little bit too twee. which is exactly what her latest Spring 2014 collection is… but somehow, i like it. the models are certainly channeling Suzy Bishop - the collection was, after all, inspired by the Girl Guides – but with a more African safari slant, something i can totally get behind. plus those shoes are just THE BEST.

Delpozo Spring 2014

when i saw the Delpozo Spring 2014 collection i had two thoughts: (1) WOW and (2) this is crying out for a comparison series. before i delved into my little project, though, i looked through every piece on Style.com. what a collection. and upon reading more about it, saw that designer Josep Font was inspired by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot’s portrait La Zingara. so, i suppose this is kind of serendipitous.

Madrid-based label Delpozo made a splash with its New York fashion week debut last season and delivered again for Spring with a positively enchanting collection inspired by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot’s portrait of a Gypsy woman with a tambourine. Creative director Josep Font, who relaunched the storied Spanish brand just over a year ago, has become known for his unique “prêt-à-couture” that combines unexpected volumes with intricate embellishments in a modern, unstuffy way.

Lyn Devon Spring 2014

i have been looking through all the Spring 2014 shows at NYFW, which is still ongoing, and i was really taken by this collection from NY based designer Lyn Devon. i had actually never heard of her before (even though she has been releasing collections since 2011) but her pieces appealed to me straight away because they are so wearable. i actually thought that the summer dresses in particular would be amazing to wear on holiday somewhere warm – and then i read the review of her show on Style.com, and now everything makes perfect sense.

A pre-wedding honeymoon in the Sahara Desert and Marrakech was the starting point for newlywed Lyn Devon‘s Spring collection. “I don’t travel a lot, so usually I’m imagining what a girl might want to wear in a faraway place,” the designer said today in her Upper East Side studio. “This time I actually knew.”
