Australia has no shortage of great independent designers. One of my favourite amongst them is Limedrop, a playful men's and women's wear label headed by Clea Garrick and Nathan Price. The current collection (AW'09 - the label is based in Australia) is titled Huntsman and features classics like tartans and cable knits presented in new edgy silhouettes.

I love the versatility of the collection and the mix of masculine and feminine elements.
And a sneak peak of the Spring Summer 09/10 "Places I've Never Been" collection!
Pour La Victoire confuses me. While certain styles scream office footwear circa the mid 90s, the majority of the collection leaves me with a severe case of the wants. Take the Ella Zip Ruffle Sandals for example...
Since first seeing the I Clothing Spring Summer '09 lookbook many months ago, I have been dreaming about the Agnes dress - a pink silk number with angled overlay detailing on the shoulder. So amazing! And now - finally - their SS'09 pieces are available in their online boutique!

I love the whimsical work of French artist Julie Thevenot for her label Rabbit on the Run: simple relaxed cuts adorned in luxurious silks and lightweight cottons adorned with bold graphic prints.
Shining a spotlight on independent Canadian fashion.
