I was pretty excited to find Ale of Rosaspina Vintage had released her new A/W’13 collection and look book yesterday. I’m a big fan. a BIG fan. Ale designs such pretty vintage inspired pieces, and her mother brings the designs to life with vintage fabrics from her grandmother’s archives. Her collections are not only lovely, but feel like a beautiful tale of legacy.
This collection is full of lady-like frocks, capes(!!!), pleated skirts, and some of the best high-waisted shorts I have laid eyes on in awhile. They also collaborated with Atelier Carlotta Sadino to create matching hats & headpieces so you can be decked head to toe in gloriousness. I would also like to mention, the first image of the look book is breathtaking. Am I right?! Tiny Ale next to this enormous tree is absolutely stunning. It could be the cover of a fairy-tale book. Or a Thumbelina re-make…a dark-haired, 1960’s Thumbelina.
