Sou Brette‘s Muqliza Imroni has wowed us again with her upcoming collection called Uknown Waters. While watching the 1953 Alexandr Ptushko film “Sadko“, she was thoroughly inspired and awed by the golden touch of its incredibly imaginative coloring, splendid characters, and breathtaking portraiture of the underwater kingdom. She wanted to create a collection drawn solely from the imagery of an underwater fairy tale. Crystal clear resin filled with faux pearl inlays, ropes dressed in textured marble print cotton in colors representing an underwater realm; have all been carefully chosen to create an honest and personal dream-like collection.
Shibori tie dying is one of our favorite DIYs of all time so you can image our excitement after discovering Upstate‘s gorgeous line of shibori tie dye scarves, handkerchiefs and sarongs. We have so much respect for this ancient Japanese art and the designers behind Upstate have truly done it justice!

Making sure most of your hair is covered, grasp the length of each side and bring them to the top of your head, twisting twice to create a “knot”. (click images to enlarge)
