Baby I'm a star
I recently discovered the clothing line Family Affairs through Rebecca's blog. It's a really cute story behind the label, formed by the mother and daughter team Nina and Kaya Egli. Just listen to this presentation of the pair:
"Kaya Egli opened her first store selling her own designs and vintage clothing at the age of 20. She went on to become the in house designer for The Beatles iconic Apple shop in London. Nina Egli, already with her own line of jewelry Toujours Toi, made a natural progression into ready to wear, and a transatlantic design partnership evolved; with Nina based in New York and Kaya in Switzerland. From New York, Nina gathers and sends packages of visual inspiration: essence, fabrics, colours, and shapes, across the seas to Kaya and the process begins to take shape. Then delving into Kaya’s archives they pull designs, which they adjust and refine to create the bone structure of each piece."
And just as cute as the story are the names of the design pieces. The dress on the first pic above is called 'Baby I'm a star' and the blouse on the second pic is named 'Sweet surrender'. Love it!
I love the clothes! However, the pics above are not actually from their newest collection but from A/W 09 since they are the ones I like the most.
What do you think?
