This post is about … clothes and character: This is Sally from Sydney, Australia on Kenmare Street. She and her husband are visiting from Australia. I bumped into them right after passing by Ruby’s which is an Australian eatery actually.
I liked how she wasn’t afraid to wear a bit of color with her pants and how she subtly mixed in her polka-dot socks! I like her boots of course and how she drapes her top. What really made it for me was her hat - a beautiful, timeless accessory. I’m not sure how to describe it - but I like that embroidered/pendant type thing. She doesn’t work in fashion but still cares about it a healthy amount. This is my perfect subject - someone who looks great, is subtle, and isn’t showy with their fashion.
Hat - Sonia Rykiel
Something else I didn’t note correctly - her pants I think - Sass and Bide
Everything was bought in Sydney.
Sass and Bide is. so. cool. Look at their Spring 2012 RTW collection here. I know, I’m quite new to this, I had heard of Sass and Bide before but meeting Sally made me have a reason to really research them. They aren’t afraid to use colors and have fun. They are creative. Each of their collection has its own little personality. I’m not sure how to describe it but I got a similar feeling when I first discovered J.W. Anderson (UK). I think Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton, Sass and Bide designers, have worked in London and show in London. Their clothes allow the wearer to visit a different world, be imaginative, unabashed, yet everything is fairly wearable - it’s not insane and gaudy. It’s healthy, a mixture of solid colors and patterns. Here’s their Fall 2011 collection. I’ll let Meenal Mistry explain.
I have always wanted to visit Australia or England - I’ve been meeting a lot of Australians lately and they all seem quite cool - it’d be nice to work in either place.
Refinery 29 did a piece of Australian Designers to follow a few days ago (Sass and Bide included!)
Hello! Happy Friday! This post is about fun photos, food, and headgear!
Pictured above is my friend Jennifer eating a delicious sandwich she made! The sandwich was made of spinach, kale, and homemade lentil pate. The pate was made up of ground walnuts, lentil, onion, garlic, miso, and soy sauce. Wow I am inspired!
I initially wanted to photograph her Jester/joker character hair clip (which Erika Devries, one of our professors, mentors, and an amazing artist gave to us) but then I was reminded of the amazing wallpaper and flowers my friend Logan Howard installed for her senior show (it just opened last night! more information here.) Anyway, Jen is so cute! And I liked the color palettes. I think her hair clip is a toy or ornament that Erika just added a clip too! So fun, simple, and consumer conscious).
Erika gave me a hat band from Yellow Bird Hats that time. I also suggest Barbara Feinman Millinery in the East Village (66 East 7th Street between 1st and 2nd avenue). It’s the details and special treats of customization or gifting that really makes something, special, unique, and worth wearing!
