So we did mention in our recent posts that we hadn't blogged in so long because of some projects that we had been working on for some time, well..(drum roll please) voila!!! We are thrilled to unveil to you, the exclusive photos from our very first look-book which we titled 'Orange Soul' after the brand.
Since our inception in January 2014, we had yet to formally introduce the brand creatively, as a treasure trove, the perfect destination for all true vintage lovers, and others with an eye for timeless, eccentric, one-of-a-kind stylish pieces. Thus, we created the Orange Soul Look-book, and what better way to begin 2015? Happy New year darling.
Set against our beloved brand theme of burnt orange and a vintage monochrome layout, the Look-book features a timeless collection of sophisticated vintage blouses and jackets, exclusive cocktail vintage dresses, stylish retro dresses, colorful; eccentric vintage blazers and bold retro prints.
We are so excited to finally be able to unveil this Look-book to you, we put in everything to create a Look-book that said all the things we couldn't quite say with words.
We worked with an excellent team of highly talented creatives to birth this work of Art, and we hope you enjoy every bit of it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
All items are available for order, subject of course to availability, but hey, vintage pieces are one-of (one piece only) so hurry, items selling out fast : )
We've named every piece in the look-book to help you identify them, look out for the size/description guide for each item below. You'll also find our contact details below.
What's your favorite look? We'd really love to hear what you think in the comments.
