I love lookbooks; it’s like getting prettily wrapped surprise your inbox. I was reminded of this today while scrolling through WyattOrr’s new books (more on those later, but exciting news: Seamless in Seattle winners Liise Wyatt and Karly Orr have released spring and fall collections under their collective label.) While I can’t share that one until they finish revamping their website (soon! I promise!), it did remind me of the other looks I’ve been stashing away. Here are three favorites:
I’m infatuated by new Seattle-and-Los Angeles brand Funboy. Launched by two locally-raised brothers, the company’s colorful mix-and-match silicon watch faces and bands are interchangeable so you can craft one in your own style. The purple and orange is screaming my name; at $29 bucks too, you could collect a few to swap around.
I feel (slightly) better about wretched spring weather when I imagine sporting one of Elizabeth Roberts’ new spring Wraphabillement rain jackets. As we mentioned in our March issue, her designs are incredibly smart and savvy. Want one? The designer is hosting a trunk show tonight at her Madison Park studio.
Innovative jewelry designer Sarah Loertscher is hot off a run at Los Angeles Fashion Week, Project Runway alum Mila Hermanovski asking the local jeweler to craft jewelry to go with her runway collection. People, there’s a reason we named her our 2011 Designer to Watch in our September issue, these sculptural pieces are crazy cool. Click! Design That Fits in West Seattle will be holding an exhibit featuring the collection starting April 12, and then a one-day trunk show on Saturday, April 14.
