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. But what I really love is how designer Aya Nakagawa took ’20s-inspired clothes and updated them with such a good, dreamy soft-focus photoshoot.
