We were so excited to do a collaboration with the lovely and talented Idee Geniale. She has such a unique personal style, so we were really interested to see how she would style the pieces she picked out. We follow her blog, Idee Geniale, as well as her posts on Chictopia, so we were curious to see what she'd choose when she came to our studio. Some of the pieces were not what I would have expected, and I was amazed at how she added her own uniquely modern vision to the looks.
This is a 1960s Pendleton jacket that were were digging for it's country rustic feel, but she threw that image on it's head and glammed it up by cinching the waist with a belt and pairing it with some shmancy Armani shorts. We were tres impressed!
This is a 1950s school girl cropped sweater. I was thinking deep indigo jeans, thick cuffs and saddle shoes. I'm a vintage lass at heart and tend to take things very literally at times. So I was so stoked to see her take. I feel like her styling makes this look totally 50s French Bohemian. She looks like she was a card carrying member of the Beat Generation. Awesome!
And not only does Idee Geniale's have impeccable fashion sense, she also makes adorable hair accessories on Etsy!
Stay tuned for more photos and an interview!
