In Plain Fashion
The other day a little tidbit came zipping into my inbox about a set of Seattle women making leaps and bounds in local, eco-chic designs. The women of Prairie Underground have quite the list of achievements under their belts and a hip line of northwest couture to back it up. Their past seasons are killer and their current season is no different. Their line is a great mix of easy to match separates that would be the perfect addition to any girl’s summer closet. The pieces lend themselves to quick layering options that will carry you through early fall – it’s not often you see a line as wearable as this in any season.
From their summer 2010 lookbook:
Your orbit string art poncho & savoy pant - Wear it to northwest art openings at Jam Fest galleries (Like Cullom Gallery) while waxing poetic on Hiroshige’s influence on impressionist art
Flaming heart tank & denim legging - Wear it to work with a boyfriend blazer to battle the difference between the AC in your office and the blazing summer heat.
Pointelle leggings & bullet cami - Wear it on date night, while you’re sipping mojitos and watching the sun set on Alki.
Asymmetrical wrap, flame skirt & pointelle leggings - Wear it to your friend’s Friday shindig at Golden Gardens – because the beach is the best place to picnic and people watch.
The Day Dress - Wear it to that afternoon wedding because it’s both sleek and daytime-casual.
Can you tell I’m enamored? Also, how do I fill my closet with all these things? Their website offers a bundle of stores who carry the line including Clementine in West Seattle and a quick list of online retailers.
And check out what others are saying about the line. What do you think, ladies? Love it?
