I've been a friend and follower of Natasha Gindin of LAVUK for awhile now after first meeting at Unique LA. Her clothing is both eco friendly and made right here in Los Angeles. But this isn't your average "eco designer" – the eco factor is purely incidental, incidental to her fashion forward, slick designs.
This collection had much more of a formal feel than previous collections, bolder colours and more structured silhouettes were present but overall it still retained it's perfect balance of smart and sophisticated. Great modern sportswear.
My favourite pieces were, without a shadow of a doubt, the large coats in fantastic bold colours, purple and red, a little vintage inspired but very modern. Also worth noting is Natasha's incredible attention to detail, the cutwork and embroidery is always perfectly executed and make a wonderful subtle addition to almost every garment.
It was so exciting to see her work on the runway and I look forward to so much more.
And Natasha….let's actually get that beer sometime soon ;)
