Ok, I have to admit it, Sophie Hulme makes sequins look really cool. Not that I ever had anything against them, it’s just that they aren’t often given a chance to expand beyond their usual application. Ha.
I stumbled across Hulme’s site last night and was swooning over the sequin jackets, and then suddenly realized, when I recognized the boxy sequin dresses, that Pixie Market recently started carrying the line .
The line’s ultimate appeal for me though, is the use of traditional masculine silhouettes. Unsurprisingly, I keep finding myself drawn to clothing that walks the line. Everything is loose and oversized so it looks like you raided your boyfriend/husband/brother/dad’s closet.
Did anyone notice the ‘snowflake’ sequins are actually composed of fighter jet shapes? And how about the Members Only style jacket with a bow on the back or the men’s parka shapes smothered in sequins? Love it.
