Last week I found myself at St. Andrew's-Wesley church in Vancouver (yes Parents, I went to church -- commence high-fives) and I wasn't there to worship Karl or pray to the blessed mother Miuccia. I was happily attending one of the city's most highly anticipated fashion shows of... well, ever: the debut of Obakki's Fall/Winter 2011 collection.
As expected, Obakki did not disappoint: from the beautiful silk maxi dresses to the thick, boyfriend-cut wool coats, the perfect balance was found between vintage-inspired and fashion-forward. As the dweller of a seemingly seasonless city, I also appreciate the ease at which these pieces would transition from day-to-night and between seasons, with a simple change of shoes, accessories and outerwear.
Some of my favourite pieces from the collection:
