Yesterday I checked out the Spring/Summer wares of Blomfield PR's fashion clients including my New Zealand fashion crush MisteR. Based in Christchurch, designers Mickey Lin and Ra Thomson made waves at New Zealand Fashion Week in September last year with their Winter 2012 collection Not So Grim.
MisteR have already established their ability to mix prints, textures and colors in a way that is both uncomfortable and wildly exciting. The SS 2012 range draws references from the eighties movie Footloose and combines this energy with their commitment to creating garments that free the wearer to express themselves.
"The collection embraces the eighties love of colour with pop brights of Rubix Cube Yellow, Cassette Tape Green, Lose Your Blues and Lamborghini Pink/Red all of which have been splashed over a classic traditional colour base.Fabric prints are acid wash like, but rather than being limited to jeans, they now form full suits. Silhouettes are classic mister with an eighties twist"
This collection makes me smile! A feeling of joy bubbled up inside me when I saw these looks hit the catwalk yesterday. In particular I have my eye on the Lindy Hop Dress (above centre) and the range of super fun neck accessories that span this shoot. The painful part about getting a sneak peak like this is that we have to wait till next season till we can purchase!
