The IT Factor: For their Spring Summer 2015, the fashion house went for over the top and 3-D effects. I like the use of the Dutch wax prints to create illusions of floating flowers; however, the designs are so over the top, I wonder who can wear them in everyday life…I loved the simpler cuts of the Fall 2015 line instead. Sharp, colorful and elegant.
The Designer Behind the Brand: Viktor & Rolf.
This week, I found out this boutique, Sapelle, London-based but they seem to be shipping in US as well. If you are interested, take a look at their website. My favorites below.
Loving the new offerings at Anthropologie for Spring 2015. Lots of tribal, “safari” vibe. My favorites are the prints which are similar to Java and Wax patterns…My favorites below.

I found this fashion house while perusing instagram for inspiration on wax-made clutches. The good news: the store is located in Cotonou, Benin but ships worldwide. The sad news: there are only eight items listed now on her etsy store. There may be more coming…:) Also, her website needs to upgrade, but she definitely has some interesting accessories to offer 🙂 Will keep you posted if I get more info on this store.
