Geronimo Spring 2010

I’ve fallen in love with the Spring 2010 collection of Los Angeles brand Geronimo. The little jackets and shorts are so pretty! No connection with native American Indians, thank god! Geronimo is the middle name of designer Jenny Reyes. For years she traveled the country with bands like Rilo Kiley and Jenny Lewis with The Watson Twins, designing the latter’s now iconic stage outfits they wore on the 2006 world tour for the album Rabbit Fur Coat. The collection is about clothes that are sexy and playful but with a sophisticated nod to the well tailored vintage pieces that inspired her. The Spring 2010 collection is her second. Before Geronimo Jenny was an intern at, surprisingly, Rodarte.

POP! with your red beret

Berets for me are a timeless fall/winter wardrobe must-have.  I have seriously inapropriate amounts of berets and i wear them every winter ever since i can remember.

Now a red beret is something special that’s why it deserves it’s own little post… It really adds a POP of color and 50s class to any outfit no matter how simple. The lovely girls in the following pics demontrate various ways to wear this cute piece of headwear. When worn with cold colortones(such as blue, grey, beige etc.) and perhaps a bit of plaid, it just adds a brilliant contrast and makes you stand out for all the right reasons. This does not mean you have to dress down with the rest of your look.. so put on your heels, paint your lips red and hit the town feeling fabulous!

Autumn de Wilde and Shirley Kurata

I keep stumbling upon the work of this amazing pair. Photographer, Autumn de Wilde and stylist Shirley Kurata. For some reason their collaboration has not been explored in the media as  much i think it should be! So by means of this humble squeeky fresh new blog i will write and sing the praises of these two lovely ladies.

11portraitAutumn de Wilde (born 1970) is an American photographer best known for her portaiture and commercial work photography of musicians.(she has photographed CD covers for Elliott Smith, Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins, The Raconteurs, The White Stripes, Fiona Apple, Beck, Built to Spill, and a number of other musicians. In addition, she has directed music videos for Elliott Smith, Spoon, Ingrid Michaelson, The Raconteurs, Rilo Kiley and Death Cab for Cutie. Her portrait subjects include Willie Nelson, Sean Watkins, Ryan Adams, Sonic Youth, Tegan and Sara, and Wolfmother)

718822_lShirley Kurata– stylist and costume designer working on music videos and editorials.  She has worked with musicians, like Beck, Jenny Lewis, Zooey Deschanel, Death Cab for Cutie, Placebo, the Bird and the Bee. She is also a costumer for various movies and tv shows, she worked on Alpha Dog(2006), sons and daughters(tv), medium(tv). Her work has been published in Lula, Domino, Filter, Bust, Filmmaker and Res.

Her style can be described as very retro(leaning most towrds the late 60s early 70s),feminine and most of all instantly classic. Her work usually invloves mixing a soft color pallet with vibrant contrasting colors resulting in easy on the eye picture perfect styling. She has worked on most of her print work along the side of Miss Autumn de Wilde. Their styles fit perfectly together.. transporting the viewer into a quirky little bohemian world of the L.A. indie scene.
