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."
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!
