One of my guiltiest late-night pleasures is trolling flickr’s Wardrobe Remix group and other similar DIY street-fashion photo communities. Love the artistry, the inventiveness, the individuality, and the pure inspiration.
Current favorite stop on the tour: the stream of Chinese-born fashion designer Unocosa. She manages to be minimalist, monochromatic, and wonderfully multilayered all at once. Especially like her knack for incorporating hand-crocheted and vintage knit pieces into her look. Here, she pairs one of her own designs, a double-layer empire-waist dress, with a hand-me-down crochet tunic from her mother—all over pants.
Another crocheted tunic here, over a tulle top and wide-leg pants and belted with a scarf. Not sure anyone other than Unocosa could pull this off, but I love it!
Here’s my new goal for carefree weekend wear—a baggy hand-knit sweater over a charmeuse dress (also one of her designs). What have I been thinking with my t-shirts and jeans?
Okay, okay – a break from the black and gray. Look how she belts and wraps this chunky knit cardigan over a man’s black dress shirt and vintage felt pants.
Go visit Unocosa at flickr for more. Would love to hear what you think!
