one of my favorite things about the internet is the ease with which we’re able to connect with others, even if we are miles away. such was my experience when i received a lovely message from Gökçe Çıbık, the designer behind istanbul-based brand, uttu. the moment i laid eyes on the beautiful lookbook photos, i knew i was in for a treat! the premiere collection is filled with all of the beautiful, vintage-inspired details that i love. i love the high-rise shorts, peter pan collars, and eyelet details, all lovingly handmade in istanbul.
