S/S 2017: InTranslation
Continuing the theme of our Late Winter 2017 Collection; Hygge, the Spring line, InTranslation will launch in April and will also focus on technique and fabrication. This new collection is a much more "slow" fashion line and hopefully something I can enjoy making and you all can enjoy buying and owning for a long time. I'll be undertaking some labor intensive technique this time around, including hand painting fabrics, lots of new patterns and silhouettes for the clothing line (pants! maxi! etc!), new styles of kilim and mud cloth bags including bucket totes, more pouches and clutch styles, another backpack style and more. More smalls! Surprises! But seriously, this time it's more about about taking a moment to discover what makes a piece special. No two pieces will be alike-- it's all headed to a one of a kind place. Each item takes a little longer to make, but the yield will be... WORTH. IT.
Still, I'm so inspired by texture and pattern and the way they make me feel. I'll be working with textiles that have a history; kilims from the Middle East, hand-dyed mud cloth from Africa, and making my own marks too. So excited to play! These will hopefully be the pieces that others chase you down the street to ask about and the things you'll want to carry and use and wear every day and forever.
Beginning in April, the collection will launch online. The kilim and leather pieces will be available first, followed soon by the new clothing pieces. I'm headed out to lots of shows and events this Spring through Fall from St. Louis to Chicago and beyond. Stay tuned for an updated list of locations and dates. New pieces will be added as they become available, so check Social Media (FB and IG) often for the best selection. If you see something you need to have or want to customize before I list it in the store, just let me know! Claim it before someone else does!
