nadinoo – the good life

british designer nadia izruna has just released her latest collection for nadinoo! titled the good life, her latest selection was inspired by the english countryside with silhouettes crafted for everyday wear and ease of movement, and a healthy dose of prints designed in collaboration with children’s illustrator genevieve godbout, all printed on 100% cotton cloth by a small english print house. what i love about the collection is that it still retains the whimsical spirit that we’ve come to expect from nadinoo, but without sacrificing practicality. so it was no surprise when nadia revealed that part of her focus on this collection was about creating the perfect wardrobe for a working mother (like herself) who wants to look her best while running around after her little ones.

if you’re not familiar with the brand, nadinoo is a small slow clothing brand based in england that was founded in 2009 with all of the garments being designed and handmade in limited runs with a focus on quality and craftsmanship. i own a few of her pieces from previous collections, and they have become prized possessions in my wardrobe.

nadinoo play by numbers

today we’re celebrating labor day here in the united states, but meanwhile in south africa, the talented nadia of nadinoo has just released her much-anticipated new collection, play by numbers! she’s back with a stunning collection of dresses and separates all hand sewn using seasonal liberty prints in 100% cotton. her clothes are just so pretty and easy to wear, exactly what i need more of in my life now that i’m living in such a hot clime. i am seriously swooning over the oopsy daisy dress, set to release with the rest of the collection this october!

calivintage: into the woods

do you ever get a new piece of clothing only to hoard it away waiting for that very special moment to wear it for the first time? i got this pretty outfit from the nadinoo fall 2011 collection months ago, and while the shirt made an appearance back in november, i just kept waiting for a frolic in the woods to wear them together as a pair! i’ve been a bit obsessed with the idea of sets. a shirt with a matching pinafore, much in the same vein as the uniforms i wore in school, or a printed top and skirt constructed of the same fabric that you can wear together or mix and match. these pretty pairings remind me of vintage patterns that my mom or grandma might have sewn when they were young. it seems so perfectly practical, but i regret that it’s something of a lost art these days.
