THE ILLUSTRATED ENSEMBLE No. 44 PERFECT STRANGER

 

We’ve never met, though here on the other side of the world I am able to get a good sense of Australian fashion designer, Amy Kaehne. Through little rays of kind e-mail correspondence and the images that accompany her beautiful Spring 2012 collection titled "A Stranger in a Strange Land" (available in September), she becomes less of a stranger. Her collection speaks out with a quiet elegance, punctuated in the right places with brilliant ochre and faded pink. My kind of girl.

One thing for sure is that Amy is an incredibly generous person; she sent me this amazing color blocked two tone jumper in navy and gray. The kind of sweater you’d steal from a boy but wear with bits of feminine jewelry and pale nailpolish. It’s got the quality to be the ultimate perfect slouchy summer sweater, soft and very familiar.
