I have fallen in love. With a skirt – a stunning one of a kind skirt – actually two of them!
A few months ago when Dawn O’Porter announced she was launching a fashion line my ears pricked by. I love her style and I think she’s done great work making vintage cool to a whole new market and showing how good it can look. In the last few years since writing afor some vintage businesses I’ve embraced vintage fashion myself and now wear quite a lot of vintage pieces.
The BOB range is a collection of dresses and skirts based on vintage shapes but for a modern customer. And it looks great. The ‘Jane’ skirt is an A-line skirt in 4 Karen Mabon prints. They are cool, clever and funny. My favourites are ‘Quotes’ which has images of book pages and post-it notes with quotes by Virginia Woolf, Jeanette Winterson and Emily Brönte and ‘Paper Planes’ – a design based on 90’s school including Fab ice lollies, highlighter pens, Wotsits and pencils. This 90’s school one with its brilliant random items all over it is my overall favourite – its such a talking piece!
Heres the close ups of the prints – they are amazing!
At £180 each they are not cheap but this isn’t disposable fashion – you would wear these skirt for ever.
There are 2 other designs available – ‘Geese in Flight’ and ‘Dog Walkers’ and I can imagine depending on your personal loves they’ll be really popular too.
Buy it at http://www.bobbydop.com – the website also has a great vintage section.
Let me know if you love these skirts as much as I do. Now I just need to save up!!!
