Spring is finally officially here and I wanted to make sure that No. 6 collection was on your radar. It is currently available now at the No. 6 Store and no6store.com and it is a must to check out their new blog.
Their Spring/Summer 2011 collection is the personification of effortless cool. Drawing inspiration from the ease and simplicity of the 1990’s, using seaming and ease with muted, but light colors, focuses on basic, yet feminine silhouettes. With a neutral color palette offering pops of crème and grounding of black and rust, fabrics are washed and sand-washed, giving the collection added texture. Characterized by light flowing pieces, over-dyed silk, printed crepe de chine, habotai and silk burlap are key fabrications. In addition, No. 6 creates their own prints and solid colors that have been hand dyed for the collection. More after the flip….
The collection focuses on their masculine, yet feminine pieces that typically characterize the No. 6 aesthetic. From baggy blazers, cropped polo shirts , long bustier dresses to jumpers, pants, and printed dresses all offering a wide range of comfort and effortless options for summer.
