twentysevennames

My latest obsession: Twenty-seven names, the 4 year old line designed by Anjali Stewart and Rachel Easting. The New Zealand designers draw from contemporary female artists, and supposedly based their latest collection on the girls they went to high school with in the 90's(as evidenced by the chunky footwear and babydoll/mini dresses). I think my favorite aspect is how there is playfulness in the contrasts, light vs. dark, and heavy vs. floaty without going over the top. To me the mark of an excellent and attainable collection of clothes is being able to envision myself wearing these things to go out and have adventures in. Its the stuff of dreams to this grown up tomboy who discovered an interest in fashion. While their stuff is way out of my price range, it will definitely serve as my inspiration in the upcoming months.

  8. Oooo - yes indeed. I can't wait to wear my new boots with dresses. Somehow I think this image has seeped into my subconcious, and it certainly doesn't help when I have their postcard/flyer on my wall :P
