The Elegant Georgia Alice

Monday, February 18, 2013

It's always exciting to meet new designers and see their first collections, their ideas, originality and approach to what they're presenting is fascinating to me.  Young local designer Georgia Currie of new label Georgia Alice launched her debut collection 'Imperial' last week at Auckland's Black Box boutique and I have to say it was a rather confident debut.  Whilst my own aesthetic generally favours lace and florals, I found myself really drawn to the clean lines and refined silhouettes of this range. Using a pared back monochromatic colour palette the focus was on elegant fabrication and soft wearability (the fabrics really were rather lush to the touch), with the garments ranging from tightly tailored to fluid in shape.

C Is For Chloë

Monday, February 11, 2013

It's no secret that Chloë Sevigny has had a long association with fashion and is known for her quirky-cool style.  So it's with great interest that the fashion world has watched her career as a designer develop and her latest collection for Opening Ceremony sees her delve into her own teenage years again for inspiration.  Being a rebellious nineties teen with a penchant for sixties mod chic, Chloë's turned that carefree attitude into a range that's fun, sweet and a little bit cheeky.

Kate Sylvester Gets Foxy For Winter

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Kate Sylvester released the lookbook for her gorgeous new winter collection 'Shanghai Fox' this week and the best part is some of it's already available instore and online at  Featuring pretty prints, silks, knits, floral embroidery and Kate's signature beautiful tailoring, it's a stunning range that's based mostly on neutrals, with colour pops of scarlet, royal blue and teal adding a brighter touch.  She's also used a cute fox motif on jackets, dresses and tops which brings a fun feel to the collection.
