Shabd/Mociun Spring 2011

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.

Oooh, love. Thanks for posting these, I missed this event and really wanted to see what these ladies had in store for spring. I still want one of those Shabd x Baggu backpacks...

Ringo, have a banana! said...

Oh man I know, the Baggu bags!! It also really inspired me to keep experimenting with Shibori and tye-dye on my own. I dyed a few silk shirts and a dress this summer and it was so satisfying!

All these prints look fantastic!

your new header is amazing!

Oh man, I want a tie-dyed back pack too! Although, I also kinda want to just MAKE a tie-dyed back pack. That would be the ultimate (well ok, not sure I want to make the actual backpack, just find a plain one and dye it!)

And Jenny, thank you!! I've been trying to come up with a new banner all week, and I spent pretty much all day Thursday futzing with this one. I'm still not totally satisfied, but I'm a lot closer than I was! Plus it's all photos that I've taken myself, so that feels very good :n )

Aww rats, I was at this too but had to leave early-ish... would have said hi (umm not that we know each other, but we have a mutual friend in Anabela of fieldguided!). And YES, everything was soooooo lovely, whiskey and ice cream included.
