Happy New Year!

Normally I'm pretty indifferent about the new year, but this year I'm looking forward to changes and newness. 2009 was full of many exciting things and big accomplishments, but also a lot of stagnant energy. Change is such a scary thing, but also very exhilarating, and even though things happen that hurt like hell at the time, I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Here are some of the new things I'm looking forward to in 2010:

The potential for New Love:

New Collection for Fall/Winter '10, which should be ready at the end of the month. My inspiration for this collection is 1940's German military clothing and 90's grunge style. I'll be playing with proportion and layering, and a lot of different types of fabric this time around - vintage lace, end-run wool chalis, and performance sherpa fleece. It's gonna be a goodie.

I spent Christmas day this year with Gretchen from MothLove, her boyfriend Jordan and some other nice folks. We watched the movie Inglorious Basterds, which in addition to being a great movie, had a lot of amazing costumes in it. In particular, I loved the style of the main character, played by Melanie Laurent. I'm kind of obsessed with her, actually. She's so beautiful and French looking.

New Website, hang tags, and garment labels. Just in time for the Spring '10 collection to hit stores! Here's a little preview - image created by Ada Mayer:

Yay for change! I hope everyone else has wonderful things happening for them this year. Prospero año nuevo, amigos. Hasta pronto...

Yay! I love when friends of friends meet and collaborate. Ada did a great job reflecting your style in the new site design :)
