And that's exactly what I told my client Katie, the day after we attended a private showing of Unspoken's Spring/ Summer 2012 collection. And who could blame us? By now you've probably already scrolled down to take a look at my 3 favourite looks - and I know you're all loving those shorts!
Last Friday, I had the pleasure of meeting one half of the designer duo that form Australia's hottest new label, Unspoken - the very lovely Marijana Golic. Between Marijana, and her designing partner, Tanya Emon, they have worked with designers such as Michael Bracewell, the legendary Carla Zampatti and international fashion house, Prada. Four years ago they teamed up to create a luxurious, ready to wear label, Tato & Memi, now known as Unspoken.
Marijana and Tanya have kindly shared with me their inspiration behind this collection:
"We were inspired by the great imperial cities of Marrakesh and Fez, that faded libertine on the coast, winds that blow you quickly along the Atlantic to the cosmopolitan Casablanca. Fresh ocean Aqua’s set the mood for Luxe Océané SS12/13. From nude to neon, modern reworking of lace dominates this season. Raffia and beading bring a rich Bohemian mood to summer, contrasted with clean crisp white, which comes in many guises for this Spring collection – the ultimate palate cleanser. More subdued but still alluring are the metallic’s in pale gold and black sequins, offering plenty of modern options for night."
I have to say, I was blown away by the aesthetic of this collection. It's everyday glamour on a whole other level. Attention fashionistas everywhere - Unspoken is one to watch!
P.S. My shorts are on pre order.
