family affairs spring 2013

it may be a bit gloomy and rainy on my return from spring vacation, but the family affairs spring 2013 collection is brightening my mood in anticipation of may flowers. the collection is titled “night train to cassis” and features a host of hand-drawn prints fashioned after original drawings by nina herself. and as always, the inspiration is as dreamy as the looks. of the collection, nina says,

“the feeling of night train to cassis is innocence, pure fun, the color white in the sunlight, white houses in greece, sun bleached towels, putting lemon in your friends’ hair to “bleach” it, never remembering to drink enough water. taking overnight train rides to port towns in france, riding your bike too fast and laughing. fresh bread and home made jam, grass stains from all day picnics, salty hair.”

    I love the delicate prints but I don’t think I could ever wear them as the model is — way too short for me! The last picture definitely flashes a little more than just leg.

      yes, i think most of her pieces are best on petite girls. i wear her dresses and they aren’t nearly as short on me, but i’m 5’5″ and i can only imagine the model is much much taller!
