It was the spiky asparagus, frilly kale, crunchy radishes, roly-poly eggplants and farm fresh eggs at Park Slope’s co-op that inspired Brooklyn-based Oeuf‘s winter collection of food themed knitwear. I’ve been a fan of Oeuf’s luxuriously soft and quality knits since my son was born and now that the weather is finally cool enough, I can’t wait to get him in the radish hoodie, pickle scarf and apple mittens. I’m just wondering if the egg beret comes in my size?! It’s all just too scrumptious!
It’s the candid beauty in nature’s asymmetric shapes that moves South African jeweler Gisele Human. Pebbles, seaweed, leaves and roots were the inspiration behind all the soft rounded corners and distorted matte forms of her small collection of hair pins, clips and earrings. It’s simplicity at it’s best.
Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson have dedicated themselves to the slow and deliberate process of textile making, which makes Wolfgang Laib, a conceptual artist known for methodically working with natural elements, the ideal muse for their spring collection. I mean, how can you not fall in love with their beautifully thoughtful clashing of geometric patterns, inspired by old Welsh blankets and woven in gauze cotton inspired by traditional Ghanaian and Japanese fabrics? The globetrotter, and vintage textile hoarder, in me wants it all . . .
Danse de Lune, also know as Art and Ghosts, is a UK based digital illustrator who draws inspiration from fairytales, dreams, nature, imaginary creatures and the supernatural. Her series Imaginary Flowers might be my favorite as she’s created up some of the most imaginative botanical leaves and buds. Isn’t her watercolor pallet just the dreamiest?!
Along with the holidays comes yet another stunning collection of festive, boho dresses from For Love & Lemons. Yellow mustard and deep burgundy dresses are adorned with velvet burnouts, appliqués and hand sewn crochet panels. Soft lavender and periwinkle blue silk chiffon dresses are printed with hand drawn flowers and finished with ropes and tassels. A subtle nod to the 70s. We dig it.
