Stumbled upon these ultra cute leggings today and fell in love with the stars!!
Shabd who also does art installations (latest was shown at Mountain fold in NY) hand dyes all her pieces and so each one is slightly different
I need at least one of these great pieces as a wicked alternative to the sickly sweet hippie inspired tie dye I am seeing everywhere.
I will defiantly be investing in a crop top and a pair of leggings.
Lucky for us Londoners she also ships to the UK for $12.99
Bio below (have a read it is very interesting xoxo)
Designer Shabd Simon-Alexander creates limited edition collections based on simple feminine shapes with attention to fabric combinations and compositions. Her method working with fabrics draws from minimalist art, quiltmaking, and the folk costume tradition of beginning one dress with the remnants from the last. She began doing her own hand dying to create fabrics that could interact playfully with the rigidity of manufactured prints. She now offers a limited edition line of hand dyed accent pieces, inspired by Hubble telescope photos of worlds being born and stars dying. They bring design, chance and chaos into a perfect balance. "I am inspired by people who live in a self-sustaining manner, growing plants and raising animals for food and clothing fibers, building their homes, and trading locally for what they can’t make themselves. I love the idea of investing your time and energy into one outfit that you make from start to finish, shearing the wool from the sheep on your farm, spending months weaving it into an intricate pattern that tells the story of where you live, your family history, and your own personal tastes, and then creating a garment that you wear every day, working, cooking, to the market, to prayer, until the threads become bare. I don't have sheep and I don't weave my own fabric (yet), but I do make outfits that I wear every day!" The collection, previously sold exclusively in Japan, is now available online for the first time at shop.shabdismyname.com.
