under.ligne collection preview


Some time ago (I think March 25th? Man, time flies when you're busy! It's crazy.) I was invited to the doo.ri showroom to preview the new under.ligne collection and to mee Doori herself. I love showrooms you guys; getting upclose and personal with the clothes is what I live for. Fancy fashion shows are awesome and I love them but it can get aggravating waiting in line, seat mix ups -- which happen more often than not, but it's understandable and I tip my hat to the ones who run the shows -- and this sentence is completely mangled but the gist is that I really love showrooms and couldn't wait to get my grubby mitts on the clothes. And, you know, meet Doori. Who is adorable. And well spoken. And hosted mother-daughter hair braiding at birthday parties several times in her life (random fact!).


I really liked the clothes; there was something in it for everybody. I particularly liked the printed trenchcoat and purple skirt, and kept on coming back to stare/fondle them. But really, it's a very well done collection; basics have a twist (perhaps a regular t-shirt isn't precisely assymetrical, maybe a trenchcoat has a strange print... you get the idea), and there is enough color and print to satisfy my own strange (read: obnoxious) taste but also if I'm feelin sinister or just New York there are plenty of subversive monochromatic pieces as well.


I think Camille would look dope in any of the black or white tankshirts..... they are callin your name girl.




These three were my favorite pieces from the line and I think the trenchcoat was a blogger favorite; everyone was grabbing a picture of it. It's perfect, isn't it? And surprisingly it's very light.




And oh heyyyy, who's this? ELIZABETH! BLOG BFF 4EVA.Strikin' a pose, what do you know. I wish I had a full length picture of her but we both had to jet within half an hour of meeting. Bummer. I still need her to teach me the ways of the D.I.Y comme jacketblanket. And the hair bow. And well, everything.

 p.s Thank you for inviting me to the showroom doo.ri! It was lovely meeting everyone.

i have had an unusual curiosity of trenchcoats lately. ever since i saw elizabeth's comme des garcons trench DIY, the clothes horse's eye design trench, and then now your post with this amazing printed trench, i've been nagging at my mom to take me to go buy one at a thrift store so i can experiment with it. she says no though, it's too warm outside for a trenchcoat. meh. if only it was winter again...
doori sounds like a really nice lady.
also, thanks for posting about your life's adventures. I really enjoy reading your style and your blog! :-)
