Checking in with Leifsdottir

Last Thursday Leifsdottir presented its Fall 2010 collection in Gramercy at the Prince George Ballroom. The 95-piece collection was inspired by the surreal, dreamlike works of Salvador Dalí and his flamboyant life in Catalonia, Spain.

Metapost: I Leifsdottir-ed

For the past two weeks I’ve been asking all the people I know in the fashion world: “Can you get me into the Leifsdottir Spring 2010 presentation??!?” I hadn’t had any luck and had pretty much given up hope until last night when out of sheer luck an invitation came my way.

I heart Pink Studio

Anthropologie does a great job of selecting brands to carry in-store. Somehow they take all these different backgrounds and blend them into one cohesive thought. As I’ve become more engrossed by the store I’ve gotten a bit better at guessing which brand submitted which piece. One of my favorite brands is Pink Studio. Their About Us page sums up nicely…
