Designer Carin Rodebjer of Swedish label Rodebjer knows that women need variety in their closets. In one collection, Rodebjer offers clothes for the laziest of (stylish) days to the fanciest night on the town. I love that within one collection there are cropped tees, loose pullovers and relaxed fit pants to immaculately tailored blazers and vibrant sequins mini dresses.

I am so in love with Margarita Saplala's SS'09 collection. The cuts, draping and prints are all amazing. I want it all...
We've been with House of Spy since day one. Ten years ago, we stocked their first collection in our boutique. After all these years, we've never tired of them. I love each season more than the previous, and am always left with an unmanageable wish list.
Lately I have been drawn to exaggerated sculptured pieces. Unfortunately, often these pieces are structured to the point of being unwearable in day to day life. Stella Lee of Linus has struck a perfect balance of design and wearability in her Maria Skirt.

The skirt is made from a silk / linen blend and is available in black, white and grey.

Not too long ago, the blogesphere was a buzz with chatter about the Lego inspired collection by Singapore based label Elohim by Sabrina Goh.

Get ready for that buzz to get a lot louder. Goh has just released images from the Fall Winter 09/10 collection and its so much better than we could have expected. Clean, androgynous and structural...

I think my heart skipped a beat when I saw the structured cocoon dress. AMAZING!

If you pre-order any pieces from the FW'09/10 collection before June 30th, you'll receive a 10% discount!
Thanks to my discovery of Dujour Magazine, I have almost kicked my glossy magazine habit. Goodbye to the days of pouring over fashion that is out of my price range or by designers I have little interest in. Goodbye to the days of guilt for amassing large stacks of glossy mags that will eventually end up in the recycling bin when moving day arrives.

Dujour is a independent magazine showcasing emerging talents in fashion and art, highlighting design that is relevant and attainable to the regular girl. Content is anything but compromised; Dujour features articles and editorials that rival even the best glossies. And the icing on the cake? Dujour is environmentally friendly! You can purchase a 1 year digital subscription for ten dollars.

For those of you who prefer something tangible to hold in your hands, Dujour offers a limited run of 1000 print copies per issue, packaged as little pieces of art with an accompanying gift.

Samantha Pleet is a favourite around here. The Spring Summer '09 collection still has that quirky girlish element to it that we've come to know and expect from Samantha, but it also embodies a lovely old fashioned elegance.

No one does rompers quite like Samantha Pleet. (They've been featured prominently in each of her collections since launching in 2006).
If you're lucky enough to be in New York this weekend, pop by the Samantha Pleet trunk show at Eva (@ 355 Bowery)!
