VEDA Spring 2011

Designer Lyndsey Butler cites Tim Burton's socks, Anais Nin, magical thinking, bespoke suits, Roland Mouret, recycling, John Waters, "Dead Man," crystals, romance, Gansett Beach, Betty Draper, and Rashaad Newsome as her inspirations for the VEDA Spring 2011 Collection. To sum this up, the diverse collection was pushed beyond its comfort zone to form, in Butler's own words, "constructed, feminine silhouettes with sharp clean lines that compliment the looser, sweeter shapes, fabrics, and prints that we are usually drawn to in the springtime." In short...VEDA is versatile, unique, and not to mention, oh-so-sexy.

Kings of Cole Photo Shoot: Behind-the-Scenes

The obsession began this past summer (here) when Kings of Cole launched their first collection. The brand has completely blown up among celebrities and fashion-savvy, comfort-seeking men and women alike. It was more than an honor to be asked to model for their new collection, which features the same beyond soft luxury casual wear in a refreshing new line of colors. Check out this video for a sneak peek at the photo shoot and stay tuned for both the lookbook and product shots!
