Friday Fives: Outhouse S/s 13

31st May 2013

Yep the Outhouse girls have done it again! their A/w 12 collection was awesome and so is their latest offering. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. I love the concept of the shoot- using a vintage Americana car as a backdrop works so well and echos the industrial feel of their pieces. I want it all!

Friday Fives: Anupamaa Dayal S/s13

26th April 2013

I love a good look book and this one’s a stunner. All the elements- the beauty that is Indira Das Gupta, the Frida Kahlo styling, the colourful sets and Anupamaa’s designs are harmoniously brought together by an awesome photogropher- Tarun Vishwa. Enjoy.

Friday Fives: Outhouse

28th Dec 2012

This week’s Friday Fives is five lush pics from Outhouse’s A/w 12 look book. I do remember thinking after the Lakme Fashion Week shows that there were some really strong accessories designers and that I should do a special Spotlight post- but looks like I forgot! DOH!

Outhouse was founded by sister’s Sasha and Kabbia Grewal last year. Their combined experience in the industry (Kabbia interned at Eddie Borgo and Sasha designed an export house that’s clients included Topshop) plus their clear and distinct design vision has resulted in a fab start for the young label -lots of press, celeb fans and importantly stockists!

Unfortunately their website links to not alot. I understand it takes time to build a website but a note to all new designers- at least put up a holding page with some basic company, contact and stockist info! Don’t make it soooo hard for your customer to find you!!! Well I did find their facebook page – Outhouse Facebook which has some info!

Label Lust: NorBlack NorWhite

23rd March 2012

The last few years have been an incredibly exciting time for Asian Fashion. The fashion scene is constantly evolving and Bollywood-esque designers are joined by a new wave of designers that are redefining and breaking boundaries on what Indian Fashion is. I’m talking about designers like Little Shilpa, Manish Arora & Jatin Varma.

NorBlack NorWhite is one such brand and integral to the brands ethos is to look back at India’s rich history in textiles and art. Their collections celebrate techniques that have been used for hundreds and hundreds of years and use these skills in an exciting fresh way. They travel to and explore a different area of India each season working with local artisans in creating their ohhh so fab collections. By doing this they are not only creating yumilious collections but are supporting local artisans and keeping these unique skills alive.

There S/s 12 collection was all about exploring Ikat and they travelled to Hyderabad to work with local weavers. How STUNNING is their look book too! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

and how amazing is the vt they shot showing all the skill, love and history that goes into their collections!

Check out their website for stockist info and their latest news!
