ALIX of BOHEMIA

THE GYPSY TAILOR

ALIX of BOHEMIA X M'ODA OPERANDI.

Alix Verley PietrafesaComment

SO, THIS IS HAPPENING.

AND TO PUT IT MILDLY, WE'RE FEELING A LITTLE OVERWHELMED.

ITS A PRETTY BIG DAY WHEN MODA INVITES BOHEMIA TO MAKE A 30 PIECE COLLECTION. WHICH LAUNCHES TOMORROW, APRIL 8. WHICH CAN MAYBE EXPLAIN WHY WE'VE BEEN OFF THE GRID FOR A WHILE. THE LAST MONTH SAW US DREAMING IN NEW DIRECTIONS, VISIONS OF FRIDA KAHLO IN OUR HEAD. SHADES OF SAFFRON AND CORAL AND ANIMAL CUT OUTS. OUR BRAIN EXPLODED, AND OUR HANDS BROKE.

THIS ONE WAS INSPIRED BY OUR MAMA, DAPHNE. 

HAND CUT STARS , POLKA DOTS AND MELLOW YELLOW:

INDIGO CHAOS:

PRINCE CHARMING VIBES AND POM-POMS:

THEN THINGS STARTED TO GET REALLY BATSHIT. 4 HOURS WERE SPENT JUST PLACING THESE HAND CUT FLOWERS AND SKULLS. WE KNOW, WE KNOW. WE HAVE ZERO LIFE:

AT ONE POINT WE WERE ALMOST BURIED ALIVE:

HEY SAILOR!

THIS IS ONE HAPPY LITTLE CHILD, THE RUBY, LINED WITH PAINTED COTTON COURTESY OF OUR FAVOURITE PAINTER, ANTOINETTE WYSOCKI:

AND BECAUSE AT THIS STAGE, WE REALLY ARE SEEING SPOTS. AND IT SO HAPPENS THIS SPOTTED CREATURE IS FULLY REVERSIBLE:

THIS ONE TOTALLY REMINDS US OF A MINNIE MOUSE COCO CHANEL LOVE CHILD. (IN THE MOST HUMBLE OF WAYS, OF COURSE)

WE DREAM IN MEXICO:

AND BECAUSE NO COLLECTION IS COMPLETE WITHOUT A LITTLE LEOPARD:

AND THEN THERE WERE 30. WE'RE CALLING THEM THE DIRTY THIRTY FOR MODA OPERANDI. 

CHECK OUT THIS LABOUR OF LOVE, TIMELY COMPLETED A MONTH BEFORE WE HIT THE BIG 3-0.

DAMN, WE ARE OLD. BUT JUST LOOK AT HOW MANY CHILDREN WE HAVE!

SEE YOU TOMORROW, WHEN OUR TRUNK GOES LIVE

HERE.
