I did promise myself I wouldn’t write too much about AW11-12 before the Summer started, but some collections are just too nice. By this I mean they make it straight onto my utopian wish list. This girl’s hair also does, by the way.
Day Birger et Mikkelsen and its soon to be born little sister 2nd Day (launch in the Fall) push all the right buttons. Deliciously grown-up and seventies shapes, luxurious fabrics and a touch of fun. Perfect.
Is this Miu Miu? Nope, it is Day Birger et Mikkelsen. Not bad, uh? I’ll have one in each colour. As for the little paisley number below, I can assure you it will be mine before you have the time to say “floppy hat”. I just wish they were already available. I can see myself galavanting in pretty dresses right now.
2nd Day will launch in the Fall and is the rock&roll sister. Aimed at a slightly younger, less classic audience I predict great things for this line. The dip dye dress looks particularly attractive in its chiffon-y glory and the sequin trousers are pretty awesome (if not a little tough to wear).
… and this is Bob the heartthrob.
