Dreaming of Spring

16 04 2012

Can’t wait for the spring 12 collection to get made soon.

This beauty should be available in May.

Caitlin got me an amazing book which I’m completely in love with.  It is a beautiful book of illustrations from life under the ocean.  I’m finding more inspiration for A/W 12.  Usually I should be done with the collection by now.  Unfortunate series of life events really took so much of my creative juice away from me.  I’m trying to find my voice again.  This book really inspired me to create.  Thank you Caitlin!

As I always have said the over sized cotton hand loomed tunics are my first love.  They are flattering on so many people.  Plus the pieces allow you to play around with proportion and various ways of styling them.  Be free and have fun with your clothes.  Such a joy to experiment variety of combination.

Hand-loomed tunic inspired by architectural shape paired with IDOM jeans with backpack from Miss Lonely Hearts via NYC.

Backpack from Miss Lonely Hearts designed by my dear friend Jenny Yuen.  All the leather handbags are made in New York.

Another lovely block printed over sized hand loomed cotton tunic.

You could style the piece with a belt to give it a more tailored look.

Tunics Please

12 12 2011

I love designing over sized one of a kind tunics made from hand loomed cotton from northern Thailand.  The reason behind one of a kind is due to the fact that the fabric in each print is limited.  The textile artisans would only weave small quantity of each print.  It makes these beauties a complete treasure.  The tunics also allow me to be more creative since they are one offs.  They also satisfied my obsession for anything asymmetrical and architectural inspired.   It is my homage of remembering the way that I first failed in love with fashion.  I have always adored my mother’s over-sized caftans and dresses and of course my childhood trips to Japan made a big impression on me.  It is my way of bringing my memories to the present time, to try to keep my Thai root alive and to enjoy the pieces in everyday living.

White hand-loomed over sized tunic with IDOM jeans.

Printed blouse with IDOM jeans and sea urchin ring.

Ikat printed blouse with necklace from Kenya.

Purple ikat hand loomed blouse with IDOM jeans rolled up.  Beautiful backpack from Miss Lonely hearts via NYC.

Again most everything in the shop is 30% off this week.  If you see anything that you like from our blog.  You could always email us, modi@idomdesigns.com or ring the shop +1 503 477 6818.  Wishing you a lovely Monday.
