Sale – for me it means buying something I’ve wanted for a long time / or a good wardrobe basic at a cheaper price. I try to be a smart shopper :-)
Last week I bought a bag that I’ve been looking at for months. I almost bought it at full price but didn’t allow myself to spend any money at that time. Now that it was one sale I couldn’t resist, besides I’ve been looking for a black everyday shoulder bag for a loong time. I’ll show it to you when it has arrived!
I mentioned five favourites from Esmod’s graduation show in this post, but I must say that Elin Tveitan is on the top of my list!
The name of the collection, skin, is represented by the use of natural and artifical materials to recreate just this – skintextures.
I am fascinated by her use of studs, which I thought I was tired of, but she proved me wrong.
By colouring them bright white and attaching them to a garment in the same colour, you forget the typical punk association most people will be reminded of.
Yes, it’s exaggerated and like the skin of a reptile, but then again, with it’s monochrome look it appears somewhat minimal and clean.
I hope (and know) I will see more from her in the future!
