love at first sight..

rittenhouse have collaborated with artist duo michael husmann & pasquale mira tschani, to create a visually mesmerising collection.
elaborate embellishments and whimsical prints create a fairy tale-like story, inspired by magical tea parties and dream-like underwater scenes.

"they transport the viewer to a faraway, whimsical world".

what do you think about this collaboration? is it love at first sight?

"At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it. It's like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it's not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you, and once in a while people may even take your breath away."

The new season's silhouettes are sharper than Angelina Jolie's cheekbones and just as enticing. With palette's dipping into soft nudes and beiges it's up to strong shoulders and tailoring tricks to toughen up pieces for urban tomboys. It's a new toughness, without studs or spikes, where a crisp clean line says more about your attitude than an Alexander McQueen skull scarf. (

nostalgic but modern?

has the tie dying technique been given new life by applying it to sleek and of the moment ready to wear garments or is this aesthetic purely nostalgic?
