Yara Flinn channels a tomboyish vision with her tiny Nomia collection. Flinn’s sculptor background factors heavily into her design process. As with most of what I feature on the blog, it all seems incredibly simple until you look a little more closely.
I haven’t posted anything from personal favourite, Maria Cornejo, lately, as I’ve been somewhat uninspired by her more recent collections. Fortunately, her S/S 08 collection is chock full of beautiful, muted prints, and the expert draping that has come to define her modern aesthetic (F/W 08 is wonderful, too). She’s also expanded her accessories, and those pieces are just as nice.
Two more after the jump
Time for another Magda Berliner post. Thankfully she’s returned to modeling her clothing, something I’ve always found charming. Berliner’s most recent pieces feel a bit more streamlined, but she still retains her characteristic silhouette and affinity for white crochet lace. Summer 08 saw her dabbling in metallics, brocade, leopard print, tie dye, as well as fleece. I like her playful reference to cut-offs with pockets that extend beyond the hems of several of the tops, dresses, and shorts.
The first four pieces are from her S/S 08 collection, photos five and six are from F/W 08, and the last four are from her smaller Holiday 08 collection.
