anywho, as we also know, Adam was amazing and started a conversation with Yosef Perez which crescendoed in a really incredible letter wishing me and my line all of the best.  phenom.

now i’ve been chatting with them, and they’ve sent me a bunch of info n images about their latest collection and i absolutely love it all!  it is much darker, somewhat goth-y, but still with a playful sensibility and a ton of opulence.

“Intrigues of the 1920s “Twenty Panky

Yosef Perez Twenty Panky I Love You Nonetheless

“The inspiration for the “Twenty Panky” collection originated from the 1929 silent surrealist short film “Un Chien Andalou” by the Spanish director Luis Bunuel and artist Salvador Dali. The films deal with phobias as it conveys sensations of fear, ugliness and madness alongside those of calm, beauty and esthetics.” Yosef Perez

it’s so funny how fashion works… remember a few years ago when grey was the most refreshing color out there?  and now i’m so excited for all the new silhouettes and bright colors, print mixing and bold color blocking. Street styling is going to be so much fun to watch this spring in Manhattan! a lot of these trends work really well together too, which if done properly, could make some really wild new interpretations of the trends.  Obviously 70’s and print mixing go, and color blocking, minimalism and long skirts fit seamlessly together, but minimal maximal, like Prada’s graphic prints on simplistic silhouettes, Jil Sander’s exaggerated lines or Celine’s voluminous leather skirts is the stuff i can’t wait to see on the street! Layers and detail that should be contradiction but instead create something wholly new…  Ok cold weather and bundling up even when i’m inside, get outta here! We got some spring fashions to see!
