United Bamboo top,
See You Soon trousers (last seen here),
Jessica Simpson patent pumps,
United Bamboo has long been one of my favorite fashion labels and it's also one of the shows I most look forward to during NY Fashion Week. Based in NYC and Tokyo, the designers behind the brand, Aoki Miho and Thuy Pham, both studied design in NYC. While Aoki was a graduate of FIT, Pham studied architecture at Cooper Union, and it's not hard to see these influences infused in each collection. Combining architectural, urban forms with Japanese artistry (think pleats and intricate fabric treatments that evoke origami), each season is full of one-of-a-kind pieces that are impossible not to lust after.
This shirt is one of my favorite items of clothing, not only for its bold color, but because of the subtle draping in front. I love it so much, I actually have the dress version of it too, which is especially fun to wear during Fall with some printed tights and cute boots. So while I may not be looking forward to colder weather, I'm definitely looking forward to getting that bad boy out of storage...
