Towards the end of last month, I was invited to a preview party for the Spring 2011 collections of Shabd and Mociun. I've been kinda obsessed with Shabd ever since crushing on her totes and tees this summer, so the prospect of getting a closer look at her beautiful tie-dyed silk pieces was very exciting (plus a little bird told me there'd be whiskey and Van Leeuwen ice cream...)
Ostensibly, I meant to cover the event for FADER's Style blog, but it so happened that the next day I came down with that cold and sorta fell into a feverish black hole for a solid five days and got no work done and then, well...Oops. Anyways, now we can all reap the benefits of the photos I made Cassie take for me.
The Mociun stuff was very soft and sheer and there were some really great prints (and the jewelry!! So delicate and perfect.) But I have to say that the Shabd stuff just blew me away. The cuts were simple enough (in the best way, that is) BUT the FABRIC, oh glory. Heavy, gorgeous silks in perfect, organic swirls of dusty pinks, mauves, grey-blues, lemon yellows. I wanted every single last piece--or maybe just that t-shirt dress, to wear every single day, for the rest of my natural life.
