Davidelfin SS '12 + Best Fwends


Hello earthlings! Tomorrow I'm beginning my third week of school back in Portland, and my second week of living in the Northeast part of the city! It's nice to be back but I am definitely still adjusting to being busy again, and I miss France everyday, especially my friends and mes enfants. Luckily I'm taking two French classes and I'm pretty sure one of my teachers is Parisian, so I still have to speak plenty of French. 

Anyway, I wanted to rave about one of my favorite collections for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2012 season. I'm totally in love with this colorful collection from Davidelfin, a Spanish label who recently showed during Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week. It's such a fun and literal take on color blocking, and brings to mind the paint swatches one would see at home improvement stores. I also love the contrast between the loud, fun colors and the traditional toughness associated with usually leather-made motorcycle vests. It's almost as if he's poking fun at this toughness. 

Oh, and THE BAGS!! I am FAR from being a 'bag person,' but these are irresistible. In fact, they were designed in collaboration with Prince Pelayo of Kate Loves Me, and are. so. beautiful. Check it out....

I feel like this collection can logically be paired with some tunes from a band I've been listening to a lot lately, Best Fwends, who call the music they make 'abrasive pop'. I played them a lot last week on my radio show Haircut Meganomics, which you can listen to HERE!




In other news, all week I've been attending Portland Fashion Week as press and it's been a lot of fun! Blog posts to come! :)

I love the white mens shirt with the strip of colour blocking. Awesome music as well. The video looks like something from a 90's American pirate TV channel.
