If Etsy had an in-house publication in the style of OK! or Hello, surely this would get the front page complete with cheesy grin shoots of the partners in crime.  Angie Johnson of I Heart Norwegian Wood's cage shape has come together with Marc Simard of Broundoor (artisan of quirky leather wallets) and his skills and knowledge of leather working to make this stupendous taupe and dusky pink creation.  The powder pink may have left this blog's background but lives on in this skirt and though I'm away this weekend by the coast again, this ensemble is coming with me even if the 'skirt with holes' could potentially freak out the resident OAP's.  The future is a cage.  The future is leather.  Take that Orange.

    WOW! that is proper awesome, lovely soft pink and I bet it feels like butter too!

  3. Stunning. I LOVE Angie and I LOVE her incredible creations. She nails it every time! x

  4. WOAH! Shock alert when I clicked on your site this morning. I’ve been away for the past week so hadn’t seen the new design until today. I do like it, but I have to admit it will take a little getting used to 🙂 Where’s the girly frippery gone? xx

  5. natty says:

  6. It’s beautiful!

    Dare I say it – hers is actually better than the Acne skirt the design was originally a copy of. She has added more interesting features: better materials, more straps, a better zip, varying studs. The Acne skirt pales by comparison…and now leather? Brilliant!

    ^^When Angie gets back from holiday, I believe she will be taking orders on this skirt….!
    DJM: The fact is Acne missed the boat by not putting that skirt into production and it was actually a catwalk prop not meant for daily wear. I agree with you that Angie has developed the shape to the next level…. and yup, has definitely surpassed the original…

  17. wow, i’ve never seen leather that pink colour. it’s such a beautiful piece!

  18. Ali says:

    Ahem…ok, I have a cage skirt…except It’s kind of an old red topshop skirt that I cut in to a cage skirt…quite badly! I was wearing it in Camden on Saturday. Had some really funny looks on the tube..
    But yeah, this one is MUCH better than mine! But then I don’t wear leather…why are all the best things made of cow 🙁

  19. missmilki says:

    Wow, that is gorgeous. Was that a special order, or are they for sale?

  27. Perla says:

    that is truly wonderful. speaking of etsy. have you had a gander at this etsy vintage shop? she has lots of wonderful finds and i would buy out her whole stock if I had a little more money on hand. I particularly love this sequined jacket. It’s very reminiscent of Balmain.

  28. floraposte says:

    That is fantastic, everything Angie makes is of such great quality!
    By the way knowing your love of grey jersey did you know that American Apparel are now selling grey jersey sheets?
