Lookbook ::: SUNO NY – S/S 11

Posted in Lookbook by strytllng on September 15, 2010

We needed to prove that we were capable of growing up, says Erin Beatty of SUNO NY to vogue.com explaining the new and more sophisticated look of the Spring Summer 2011 collection which has just been introduced at New York Fashion Week. Three quarter length skirts and dresses, combined with their signature Kenyan patterns are spot on the Elegant Femme look we saw at Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs but captures the freshness of SUNO’s unconventional coloring and prints. Even in the all white dresses with layers of frill structuring the design, SUNO’s handwriting came through strongly while advancing the repertoire. I like to see them developing and playing with styles but staying true to their own character as long as GROWING UP will never mean GETTING OLD. BRAVO!

Lookbook ::: OneTeaspoon A/W 1011

Posted in Lookbook by strytllng on September 8, 2010

Some people cannot wait until the day they turn 18: they run free, careless and might even pack their few belongings to take a road trip. But what they don’t have in mind is a concrete and ambitious vision of their future. The young Amy Walsham took that road trip from Queensland all the way down to Sydney but instead of camping, partying or visiting friends, she had 2 scissors, a suitcase full of clothes and her head filled with visions. It doesn’t come as a surprise that her first designs were sold alongside Australia’s motorways until a streetwear retailer ordered the first selected items in 2000. By now, OneTeaspoon’s unconventional designs and selective designs are available world-wide and celebrities like Mischa Barton and Nicole Richie are among the famous fans.

Irregular hemlines and cuts, impure prints, slouchy and oversized cuts meet high quality fabrics in soft rosé, black, white and jeansblue while  decoratively placed utensils like colossal zippers, perfect beading and studded designs create a contrasting interplay leaving the wearer effortlessly fashionable day- and nighttime. My personal favorite are the bodysuits with ueberlarge frills. Definitely a new label to keep in mind.
