It wasn’t until seeing one of these images on Pinterest last week that I had even heard of design label Co. And after looking through previous seasons, trying to figure out why I had never heard of this label, I quickly learned this collection is kind of very different from their 2015 collections, which is to say, not at all my style. So what sets this season apart for me? Well, it’s decidedly vintage, taking inspiration from the glamorous and yet often androgynous Marlene Dietrich. It goes without saying it’s a collection that speaks to me far more than their previous collections of – for lack of a better word(s) – fashion-y silhouettes and luxury designs. I can appreciate collections like such for their artistic vision and value, but my more sensible side feels they are not wearable pieces, at least to me anyway. I can appreciate it, but I don’t fall for it the way I would something that seems real, real in the sense that it’s accessible and approachable. But this collection! This collection felt like epiphany – this is the kind of comfort I have been searching for! This style of put-togetherness and ease is exactly what calls to me on days when pants win over skirts, and undeniably proves simplicity doesn’t have to look so simple. I am excited to see what else is to come from this label, whether it will continue to speak to and inspire me, or become something of an afterthought.
