Marie-Louise "Wild Card" Collection 2010

This past friday, I found myself back at Firehouse 13 fitting models and pulling details together before showing my latest collection, Wild Card. This round focused on lower hemlines, higher waists and a number of tops reminiscent of vintage bathing suits. The color scheme was kept neutral with earth tones which was a stark contrast to the last collection which focused on heavy black leather. Despite the clear separation from the prior collection, some things haven’t changed. Leather detailing and bold zippers were not left in the dust. As the looks came out the audience was exposed to the transitions from summer to winter, starting with a look very reminiscent of a bouquet of flowers and ending with a Christmas dress.

Thanks everyone for the great turn out, lovely response and all the support.
Special thanks to my dad and Sarah for photographing the show.
Video clip to come!

Charlie Chaplin

The first movies we started collecting at my house were black and white films. Laural and Hardy, The Three Studges and of course, Charles Chaplin were all favorites. Charlie killed the heel touch jump  and moved about his day with such energy that every time I toss this little bowler on my head, I cant help but skip through my day. It carries the same effects that wingtips have. It transforms any feminine outfit by giving the look a slight masculine touch, letting everyone know your not afraid to be you.  

-h&m hat, dress, belt, AA neon bike shorts, aldo wingtips and vintage metallic purse

1X3: Do the Polka

This Kimchi Blue skirt has become a go-to item since the spring. It keeps evolving with the seasons and transgressing all occasions. From my leather loving self to an office environment it keeps coming up in my outfits. My favorite way to play with these soft polka dots are to pair them with stripped tops. Thin stripes, thick stripes..mixing the patterns keeps things fresh. 

outfit 1: h&m leather vest, julies closet tank, chelsea boots
outfit 2: aldo wingtips, gina tricot sweater
outfit 3: h&m red shoes and jean jacket, vintage bag, london sunnies
