spring in our new
lykke jacket and nikita culottes
Spring is a time for transitioning. The days are longer to take in the changes happening in
the time allotted. We squeeze in so much: more time with our loved ones, with ourselves;
all while the world warms up again. Spring takes on double duty as the season that’s
strong enough to nestle right between the extremes of the weather. That’s what inspired
the Danai. Two beautiful elements making a strong case for mixing, matching and being
playful. And the elements of the dress lends itself to that.
With an asymmetrical cut, the Danai is perfectly imperfect in its proportions. With a belt
that can accentuate or exaggerate the waist of the wearer, this shirt dress is primed to
make you feel luxurious and still functional. In the Francesca skirt, feel free to feel free.
In the floral print draped over a blossoming petticoat produces a beautiful and flexible a
line skirt that’s meant to be comfortable and fluid in the way Spring inspires.
A lot of this work was inspired by prairie life. Such beautiful and delicate pieces
surrounded a hard-won life. And with that reflection comes an appreciation for what they
did, but what they wore.
The word Rumspringa is the Pennsylvania German noun for “running around” and in its
meaning is a time to develop and venture out to new things. Spring gives us such a time
to venture within ourselves, doesn’t it? There’s a new sense of intrigue and freedom in
rumspringa and just a hint of romance. For what’s to come, for what’s been here and for
what’s already in bloom.
So, in the presence of such strength and femininity we ask you, what warms you?
