To help kick off Denim Month, our contributing editor Anabela Piersol of Fieldguided gathered her favorite inspiration in an ode to blue jeans.
“Is there any fabric in fashion that is more classic, more enduring, or more versatile? Available in deep indigo hues to the palest of blues, it’s easy to see why jeans have become iconic. From high fashion to work-wear, from Hollywood to the runway to the street, denim will continue to endure forever.”
We asked a few of our favorite designer friends to share their mood boards for Fall. This week, Molly Keogh and Maryanne Mathias of Osei-Duro share their inspiration for the season.
“For Fall we thought about linear and geometric prints, and how they distort on the human form, especially as slouchy clothes. We brought in stripes and plaids, but they are uneven and distorted, imperfect. That idea of a mathematical form that is handmade, so a bit soft around the edges. The colors are moody and raw, a little emotional and even bruised. It’s about juxtaposition, an inside out thing. Heart is on the outside. Is the body wearing the dress or is the dress wearing the body?”
