first rite launched it’s inaugural collection just a couple of years ago (i was particularly smitten with the fall 2012 look book), but i’m not sure why i hadn’t shared her work until now! i learned about designer nikki garcia’s work through mutual acquaintances some years back, and i’ve been quietly following her ever since. i always get excited about new designers, and really enjoy waiting for each new collection. her latest round of indigo dyed linen for spring 2014 has really got me itching to finally add one of her pieces to my wardrobe!
i love that even though it’s a spring collection, everything can easily transition from spring to fall, which probably has to do with the fact that all of the clothes are designed and sewn in san francisco. the city with no seasons and every season all at once.
