In early 2012 I was contacted by a communications representative for Carleton University, looking to do a piece on myself and HDYP. This collection was inspired by University life, both past and present, and the fashion which is created on a campus. This Spring collection draws inspiration from the late 50′s, and early 60′s academic look of young people with bright futures. For women- longer skirts, pleated shirts, blouses, and hats- contradict the notion that less clothing is more sexy. These looks are sophisticated, worthy of respect and intrigue. For the men- oxfords, bow ties, varsity jackets, blazers, brogue and wingtip shoes, chinos, and proper socks- complete a well-rounded outfit, pairing sophistication and style. Brands in this collection include: Yves St. Laurent, Polo Ralph Lauren, Christian Dior, Tommy Hilfiger, Bally, Bostonian, and many more. Items from this collection will be available at Reap & Sew Shop and Fall Down Gallery. Full Look Book at www.handdownyourpants.com.
