A is for Apfel....

On the subject of vintage, the legendary Iris Apfel had these opening remarks to make last week at an Accessories Magazine led panel discussion:

“...Would somebody please define vintage? I just purchased a jacket from Comme des Garcons at the show and was told it was from 2016. Does that mean anything that was made even a week ago is vintage? Vintage used to be an elegant way of saying ‘old clothes’ but for me, it seems that the term can be used to define something that is unusual, not run of the mill, and one of a kind, regardless of the age. Age doesn’t mean anything in and of itself. Just look at me!"  Iris Apfel, Accessories Magazine

from anchovy, with love

what's in a name?  

at Anchovy a Lithuania based kids' fashion collection presented at Playtime Show this week, the answer is color!

Giedre, the artist and founder behind the line, works with an interactive, customized app that essentially translates the theme words of her choice into each garment's wash of gradient color. 

sound complicated?  Giedre demonstrated for me with the word of my choice: beauty
we simply typed into her phone app and watched as a field of color filled the screen. 

the collection, hiding from the sun, and Anchovy's innovative silhouettes, colors and patterns in European sourced cotton, linen and silk, also caught the eye of Pirouette blog, who bestowed upon the team their coveted One to Watch Award!
