It's great to start a new blog section, it's even grater when you're able to keep up with it. It's been half a year since the last (and first) "Brand new love" entry, dedicated to brands I love and lust for. Not Alexander Wang and friends, but brands for fashionistas in the know, that I can (almost) afford. As winter keeps knocking on our doors and windows (I pulled out the crochet blanket!), I'm desiring some structure and subdued sex-appeal, executed so well by RYIKA.
Riyka A/W 2013 Collection
Rebecca Johnson, the mastermind behind Ryika (together with her husband) is well known for her pointy corners and triangular patches. I attended her design school graduation show, and must say that allthough she toned it down since, the language is still the same - sharp, edgy, so London cool. back in the day in Tel Aviv, and now she's a Londoner. I love flowers and lace, but now I crave straight lines and color blocks. I guess people change.
