DEYROLLE x OPENING CEREMONY

A few years ago now, I arrived in NYC from Washington via California determined to stay true to my West Coast sensibilities, in all their bright, mish-mashed, paisley, crazy quilt and sixties-polyester glory. The longer I've lived here, I'll admit, the further my tastes have skewed towards a more refined, simplistic, hell even minimalistic approach to getting dressed--though I have little hope of (or interest in) ever getting over my aversion to black.

Nevertheless, the thrill of a really great print will never, ever lose its appeal. Case in point: these Deyrolle x Opening Ceremony pieces. You may have seen Miranda July prancing about Sundance in the yellow cat print top, which I was awfully excited to find out wasn't vintage after all. Foxes also happen to be a favorite animal of mine (probably because they remind me of cats), so this stuff is kind of blowing me away at the moment. Oh dang, can you imagine it as wallpaper???

These are great! In a sense, they're some kind of a meeting between West and East Coasts (maybe?): not too flashy, but still groovy, and on silk instead of polyester! Please keep a bit of your West Coast sensibilities, even if it's just in the lining of your coats, a bit of crazy prints and textures is what keeps clothing exciting!

Oh my, these are something wonderful. I feel you on the wallpaper comment, too. Someone's gotta make that happen (maybe me!).

I'm pretty sure my roommate shot those. And I'm pretty sure she flipped over the cats. She keeps a "cat camera" in her bag at all times for awesome cat snaps.

YES! I saved that Facehunter photo on my desktop. I assumed it was vintage as well, but nice to know there is more than one out there, even if I can't afford OC. And yes, wallpaper definitely!

Um, so, I saw these on your blog and pretty much ran to Opening Ceremony to buy that navy fox-print tunic--you should get a referral discount! ;]
