STYLE MUSE: Yves Saint Laurent

By in

This week, we’re groovin’ back to the Seventies. A time when fashion was all about experimentation and freedom of expression. No one other than Yves Saint Laurent portrayed those things, whose tailored style and classic square framed glasses, was a fixture in the fashion world. Being one of the most illustrious designers and fashion pioneers, his personal style of smart pantsuits, tuxedo looks, and tailored outfits echoed into his countless collections that revolutionized the way women dressed.

In The Mood: Knit Into You

By in


You don’t know how lips hurt
Until you’ve kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you’ve flipped you’re heart and you have lost
You don’t know what love is

Do you know how lost hearts fear
The thought of reminiscing
And how lips that taste of tears
Loose the taste for kissing

You don’t know how hearts yearn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you’ve faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
How could you know what love is

Elements that Matter

By in

Flash back to chemistry class but with a sartorial twist. There are various elements that make up who we are right down to what we wear. This weeks collection is inspired by the different elements that are found within our environment. From earth to sky, scroll on as we breakdown what each piece visually represents to us >>

ClearJacket

Matte  Clear Parka

 

Molecules are present all around us. When two or more atoms join together, they form molecules yet are so small that they can’t be seen within the naked eye. This piece is a representation of when molecules are bonded together, it creates something as a whole even if we cannot physically see it.

Mirror

Le Specs ‘Neo Noir’ Milky Tort

Light is an energy that travels in waves. The reflection of light is when light bounces off an object. If the surface is smooth and shiny, light will reflect at the same angle as it hit the surface called specular reflection.

Blue light has a wavelength of 475 nm (nanometers) which is the smallest wavelength in the color spectrum. Because of this it’s light is able to be scattered in all directions as the Sun passes through the atmosphere, which give us the impression that the sky is blue.

All plants need sunlight to grow. Sunlight gives plants an input of energy which gives them their green color called chlorophyll. Chlorophyll absorbs this energy from the sunlight in a process known as photosynthesis. Photosynthesis converts this light energy into a chemical energy of sugar and other organic compounds.

SkyThe 5th Label Denim Top & Skirt

The atmosphere we live in is a mixture of gases that surround the Earth. It’s an important part of what makes Earth liveable. High above the planet, the atmosphere becomes thinner until it gradually reaches outer space.  Yet it is the Troposphere (the lowest layer of the Earth) where all the weather takes place and the clouds are found.

Symbolism : Desert Voyager

By in

The clothing we choose can take on a symbolic meaning, whether we know it or not. The shirt that we always gravitate to and the bracelet that we can’t help but wear everyday. These are the pieces that go beyond style or adornment and start to cross into the realm of meaning and emotions. Here we break down the collection that we’ve brought into the shop this week and visually communicate the feeling each piece evokes in us.

Insp1

Infinite Universe ‘Hieroglyphs’ TeeThe first look was translated from the literal textures found within the desert environment. Sands and hieroglyphics mask this look as they do in most Egyptian deserts.

 

Insp_2

Something Else Tassel CardiganSubtle nods to structural elements found within this garment inspired the statuesque and repetitive background. It was important to recognize the complex constructed qualities that pyramids and the like are composed of.

 

insp3

Deja Vu Tassel ScarfThis look was heavily influenced by the idea of mirages and the almost bi-polar weather that surfaces as day morphs into night. Suddenly covering up for warmth is necessity as the cold creeps over.

 

insp4.4

Gypsy Junkies ‘Wildheart’ Bowler BlouseThis look exemplifies the heat and brightness found within the desert. It was important to connect these two ideas while keeping in mind accessories that lent a practical defense against such climates.

 

 

insp5

 

Aten Pendant NecklaceThis accessory references the cultural history of Egypt’s Past, while providing a new and current perspective dually. Embellishment played a huge role in Egypt’s culture, just as it does presently.
