Discover ISA ARFEN

March 13, 2013
A few days ago, I came across London-based womenswear label ISA ARFEN. It was founded in late 2011 by Serafina Sama, who worked for Marni, Lanvin and Marc Jacobs; as an assistant for Chloé and  as a freelance consultor for Louis Vuitton, Acne and Charlotte Olympia; pretty impressive, huh?

After all of this she created a small collection of summer dresses inspired by the retro glamour of Slim Aarons’ (who I idolize) society photographs. The pieces were sold exclusively through private sales, and the enthusiastic response led them to develop these initial themes into a broader collection.

Take a look at my favourites selection bellow.
And more spectacular looks...

I'm absolutely head over heels for the S/S collection for this year; the quirky cuts the dreamy embellishment... how can you not love it? I especially like the shades of pink and those green shorts, pure perfection. I think it looks like a mix of  the Italian design aesthetic with a peculiar London kick (anyone else agree?) - so unique. 

I'm sure we'll keep hearing about this exciting new designer and her directional silhouettes, bold colours and intricate trimmings. 

What's your opinion on ISA ARFEN?

Kisses,
Amy.
