(Panoramic print, digital photography)
The heady mix of flowers, geometric lines, and a curved perimeter in my piece that I made last month can also, coincidentally, be found in the latest collection by the designers at Stolen Girlfriends Club (I love when things work out like this.) The New Zealand label is known for their merging of prints and styles and this collection entitled Hello Country/Goodbye Nightclub serves to showcase that. I’m not the biggest fan of this peplum style that’s emerged this summer (undoubtedly because it’s not a trend I can see myself wearing), but I can appreciate the label’s commitment to mixing that aesthetic with different textures, such as crocodile-embossed leather and crochet knits, and a bold floral print.
As for my panoramic print, I’m not quite sure if I’m more pleased with how it turned out or that I’ve actually finished it. Final products are a bit harder to reach during the summer, I suppose, when I don’t have the push of a deadline to force my hand. In turn I’m getting more sleep and for now that may be more important that a jump in work productivity.
