Leah Reena Goren F/W 2014 Scarf Collection

leah_reena_goren_amber_byrne_mahoney_005_zpsc87d88adIt seems scarf weather isn’t going anywhere any time soon, but with the newly released collection of beautifully hand illustrated scarves by Leah Reena Goren I don’t think I mind at all. Although they are only pre-order until the Fall, they remain perfect pieces for an early Spring when the temperatures aren’t below zero, but not quite warm enough to bare our necks to the wind. I’ve been a long time fan of Leah, her surface pattern designs and quirky illustrations are always wholly unique and unequivocally awesome, and thus many bigger brands have tried to replicate (shame on you!). I’m particularly enamored with the BFF scarf and Picasso Cats scarf, and should probably save my pretty pennies for one (or both!). I also have to mention how absolutely breathtaking the lookbook is. Leah couldn’t have picked a better set of gals to work with. Model Taylor LaShae is so stunning – kind of makes me think about chopping my hair (but I won’t).

If there is one thing I wish I was gifted with, it would be the ability to draw. I cannot draw. I hate saying that. But I can’t. And at times it feels like it doesn’t make sense. My father is good at drawing, my mother can sketch patterns and designs, and my younger brother shares their abilities. So what happened to my older brother and I? Although, maybe even my older brother can draw, I’m not certain. I did not receive that gene from them (curse you!). Whenever I see Leah Goren‘s designs it gets my “omg why can’t I draw!?” feelings going (Olivia Mew does this to me as well). Her illustrations and surface pattern designs are so endearing, you couldn’t help but love the girl wearing them (and love the girl creating them). The Girl Faces Dress is my absolute favourite. I need it. In my closet. Now. I have an affinity to kookie printed dresses. I’ll pretty much love any dress with strange people walking around on it, animals wearing outfits, miniature banjos and record players floating randomly, just anything that kind of doesn’t make sense, but you just want to stare at it till your eyes fall out. Anyways, Leah Goren, always making me envious and so happy at the same time.
