Natalie sent me these incredible images yesterday from her new Autumn collection, and I was so blown away and so excited to share them with you. She is an artist with material, pattern and print. I've never seen anything like it before. I love the attention to detail on all the garments. I especially love the first look, and the pom pom stockings!
I'm going to hand over to Natalie Creed to tell you a bit more about the inspiration for the collection.
"Kaiki, the Japanese translation of 'Sea Princess' epitomizes this collection. The ocean and the East are constant sources of inspiration for my designs, and I brought them together to create a playful and slightly fantastical collection. The colours of the ocean come through in the watery greens and blues contrasting with bright corals and yellows of marine life and soft pinks of beached shells. Silhouettes are young and doll like, with petal shaped accents on hems and sleeves. Uniquely designed prints of otherworldly flowers and undiscovered sea beings adorn soft cottons, while illustrated sea sisters are embroidered for textured detail. The feel of the Kaiki collection is quite dreamy and invokes a sense of playfulness and magic within the wearer."
As we in the Southern hemisphere are being bombarded with neons and pastels in the North they're getting a more muted colour palette. I love spring and summer and it couldn't have come any sooner but I love the layering and colours of Autumn/Winter too.
This S & C Fall/Winter range is available from today with a lovely wanderlust travel theme. I can imagine myself walking around a new city in this hat, bundled in a scarf, tote over my shoulder, camera in hand. Ah! I have serious wanderlust and this collection isn't helping.
Don't you just want to hop on a plane to somewhere new? Or have you got some trips coming up? Tell me, so I can live vicariously through you ; )
Bambi Northwood Blyth is the face of the new Woolworths A/W range and totally personifies the range. She is pretty meets tough, and has the most incredible eyebrows i've ever seen. Here is a short interview with her.
I got spoilt with an outfit from the Winter range last week and have been browsing the other items i'd love to get my hands on for Winter. I'm really impressed that local shops are stepping it up!
I was in Woolworths yesterday looking for shoes for a wedding and I was blown away at the amount and variety of boots they have, and I heard they're running a promotion where WRewards cardholders get 10% off all boots from 25 March until 7 April 2013 (including Country Road and Trenery). Yes!
These are some really beautiful garments by another local designer Natalie Creed. I love the hints of mints and mustard (and the fact that i'm describing her clothes like food). They do look and sound delicious though don't they?
Besides the delicious clothes I especially love the art direction of the shoot. The beautiful old doors set against the rolling waves is so gorgeous and the stripe of pink on the front of the crate adds a little something extra don't you think?
Teaming up again with photographer Amy Scheepers who is making quite a huge entrance into the world of fashion photography Natalie's A/W '12 collection is sure to be a success!
