pale white : late winter 2012























Pale White is the name of a song I heard for the first time about a year ago. It is a collaboration between Yann Tiersen and Shannon Wright. Usually songs come and go in my head, but this one set up camp and was bent on being noticed. At first it seemed like a song I might have liked in high school (a little sad but deep and hopeful, a little above it all), but then it became more complex and as I took it apart I kept finding new things. If I liked wine, this song would be like a good wine with many layers you can analyze.

I know by collection standards it's late to be putting out anything for winter, but I don't think these pieces are particularly winter driven, in fact, I find them quite multi-seasonal! Many of them are things I wear pretty much everyday, a uniform so to speak. I hope you find them wearable and comfy. I'm having a bit of a time with the HTML for the shop at the moment, but it will be up and running either tonight or tomorrow morning. Along with some bags that have been marked down quite a bit. So stay tuned! Shop's open! Click here!

i didn't even recognize you at first without your glasses! you look amazing, julia.

that shirt looks awesome, but of course not right for maternity wear. soon, though, heheh...

is the black dress also part of the new offerings? i'm loving how everything works well together but also could easily be incorporated into anyone's existing closet.

In Seattle, these pieces say 12 months a year. Congrats.

the striped dress is making my eyes go crazy! in a good way.
well done Julia, everything is so simple yet complex... i like it :)

All of it is so beautiful! Really awesome. Who cares about seasons anyway? I don't. Seasonless clothes are the best.

Oh my goodness Julia, I love that sweater! It has a perfect shape and color and texture! I love the sleeve too! And those flats are insanely amazing! I am so happy for you!

Belinda said...

I have to say it here too - it's all so good. I see these pieces working well for years to come.

I like how you've mitred the stripes on the top and bottom of the dress. It really does work well. And it's very cute the way you have made the button up bit at the back circular. Nice attention to detail. That's one of the things I love about your work.

la casita said...

perfect name for your beautiful shop!
I love the sweater just so perfect.

m i l e n a said...

beautiful pieces, and I love the styling too! (headscarf, yes!)
seasons are really not that important when you're selling directly to your customer, and these pieces defy seasons.
good luck with your sales!

jennifer said...

Nice work, Julia! All of these pieces are gorgeous and seasonless! You also look amazing in these pics!

metrode said...

joyce said...

everything looks wonderful, julia! nicely done!

julia said...

Thanks so much everyone, you are all so sweet! I really appreciate your encouragement, I think I'm having a pretty good feeling so far about clothing.

I'll just try to answer a few questions you guys asked:

The black dress underneath the sweater is something I made for myself a little while ago - kind of dress/smock/ apron thing. Not a shop item I'm afraid, though I do love it!

The shoes are tabi flats from Martin Margiela. I got these ones from totokaelo last summer.
