today i thought i’d share a few of my favorite looks from the gretchen jones fall 2013 collection. inspired by poet diane di prima’s “recollections of my life as a woman: the new york years,” she continues to showcase her southwestern roots, this time with a much more urban influence. i may not describe my style as bohemian, but i love the vintage inspiration behind the easy, draped silhouettes and intricate prints, harkening back to the late sixties and early seventies. and speaking of prints, the custom textiles this season were created in collaboration with fine artists rosalyn bodycomb, creating that perfect balance between downtown sophistication and modern romanticism. beyond pushing the envelope and creating a truly unique collection, i love that gretchen jones is dedicated to ethical and eco-friendly business practices, reducing waste and producing her collections domestically. browsing through the huge collection, i can certainly see myself sporting the black and yellow geometric bodice dress above, or a certain little ascot dress below!
