CHARLES ANASTASE

Charles Anastase is a designer and illustrator based in London, whose collections seem to be tailored for a remake of a modern day Alice in Wonderland. His latest show was labeled after a 1970 quote from Yoko Ono, “John’s something more abstract.” Although his latest collection is ground breaking avant-garde, the Spring 09 RTW is still what I believe to be the zeitgeist of the brand. In collaboration with Linda Farrow the brand created the “Tennessee” glasses after the drummer of the band The Like, Tennessee Thomas. Tennessee’s style reflects the brand concept of a Muse that is “Naïve, spontaneous, abstract, gothic” so well, that it might just be that her closet is an actual Charles Anastase store. How do you know I’m mad?

WREN

Born and raised in the picturesque Illinois but now based in Los Angeles, Wren designer and founder Melissa Coker makes fashion for library-card-carrying hipsters. In a literary vein, the name Wren was borrowed from a Dickens character that made dresses for dolls named Jenny Wren. Quirky Brit cool meets Cali-girl on Wren’s Holiday 09 look-book featuring darling  it-girls Alexa Chung and Tennessee Thomas. Slinky velvet skirts, light silk tops, shimmery frocks and dotted tights that are just so fitting in an underground dance party as in a lavish Jay Gatsby one. Can’t you just connect the dots on my legs?
