>> 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…)
