Hand Printed Fashions

Happy Friday! Let's start the weekend with lovely fashions from the Spring 09 "Big Sur Meets Helsinki" collection by Lina Rennell. This collection is inspired by puma concolors, ocean weathered objects and washed-up discoveries from the sea, driftwood & barnacles & visionary notions. The hand silk screened organic textiles form an elegant, intelligent and simple look. Rennell's work is stunning and I love her focus on hand printed textiles and utopian thought. Check out her site for more wonderful fashions.

Ooh! Love them all, but mainly the blue top. I've been looking for somewhat swingy, ends-at-the-waist kind of tops, and that one's adorable.

Thank you for stopping by my cupboard and leaving a comment!

I can't think of anything better than washed up discoveries from the sea. My husband has actually found me two fantastic bottles this past week. Happy weekend!

Wow! I'm still getting over the title: "Big Sur meets Helsinki" - that alone is enough for me - let alone the gorgeous fabric prints!
