Leaving You in the Dust

Leaving You in the Dust

>> A few of you may have read about Kingdom of Style's dress collaboration with Dusturbance as well as their collaborative illustration/website work but the 'Dust' has settled now and there are some pretty lofty ambitions for her website/blog/e-shop/custom-order hub Dusturbance.  She's not presenting collections as such.  She is keeping up a blog where she may or may not drop a piece or two out of the blue and you may or may not wish to drop her an email to place an order.  Building on her collaboration with Queen Michelle, she will also be introducing a custom-order system wehre basic dress shapes can be customised with different 'attachments' that will change with time, not in matter of months but possibly days/weeks.

Ostensibly Dusturbance may not bend to your wishes in terms of having all the customer service knick knacks that us spoilt e-shop veterans are used to but it does make for more of a communicative process in fashion that has a similar spirit to Etsy Alchemy where conversations are had and it's not just a matter of clicking the 'Add to Cart' button.  Dusturbance's first stance against the pace of fashion is this mini collection Resort 2012, or 2013 perhaps?  (In complete agreement with her title seeing as for me, pieces that are relegated to one season only is a sad state of affairs indeed…)

"Pre-fall collections are rolling out. For which season, we can not follow any more.

We present you with the Resort2012 collection. Or was it 2013?

The print is inspired by dead pigeons and that is universal, everybody has seen one at least once in their life."

'Nuff said… nothing more to analyse really.  Except if you have a real problem with dead pigeons, other dead birds are also available upon request… a quail perhaps?  (thinking of the lovely roast quail I had last night…)

    What a fabulous idea! It’s so nice to hear someone else recognize the absurdity of the resort/pre-fall/six-months-ahead system we’ve got going on… I always get horribly and embarrassingly confused 🙂

    Ahh, dead pigeons. Living in NY, I see pigeons as flying rats.

    i really like the more collaborative e-shop structure. and i agree, keeping track of dates/seasons is becoming an archaic system in this culture of “gimme gimmie now now now” haha

  8. The picture is a bit, well, disturbing, but it sounds cool!

    hi Suzie
    I am a big fan of your blog.. you inspired the creation of mine.
    it would really mean a lot to me even though you are busy I guess if you took one minute to check it out.
    I will pubish every week small ‘editorials’ featuring one girl in one hot look from my punk rock point of view.
    please let me know your opinion of my first post, it would mean a lot to me.
    feel free to link me if you like it. i am still trying to figure out how this link thingy works on typepad…

    The idea of seasons and how the indie designer fits into the mix is something that I spend a lot of time pondering, so it’s nice to know that other designers are thinking along the same lines! Go Dust go!

    I agree with Angie, Go Dust!! I love what they’re trying to do over at disturbance. It’s so unique, explorative, and shopper friendly. I also love the transparency, so refreshing 🙂
