Colenimo S/S 2011

I was sent these images for Colenimo’s spring 2011 lookbook back in October, when fall was still making its way to Atlanta and warm weather outfits were the kinds I wanted to forget. I like them a lot more now that spring (though not summer!) is inching closer and is actually something I can get excited about again. I may not be ready for it yet but when spring comes along I wouldn’t mind wandering around in little floral and check dresses like these . . .

Colenimo always has the best collection inspirations, too. This particular one was inspired by a 1928 photo by Edward Steichen, showing four women on a yacht, looking out on the water, graceful and casual at the same time. ┬áBut what I really love is how designer Aya Nakagawa took ’20s-inspired clothes and updated them with such a good, dreamy soft-focus photoshoot.

    Can you believe spring is around the corner? I’m struggling, I must say although the days are getting slowly lighter already.

    These pictures are so atmospheric, and I love the clean patterns on the fabric. I always think with shoots like these that, while I appreciate the dreamy, I wish I could see the cut better, but it’s not so much effort to find it elsewhere! Lovely post.

    These photos are so beautiful. They are the perfect inspiration for Spring (especially the 1930’s bonnets). xoxo

    It’s awesome when fashion photographers shoot the clothes this way. It’s like “mehhh, you get the idea right?”. And, based on the comments above – we do :)
