Pin It


wacky for obakki

And no, I'm not making a drug reference with that post title -- but I'm excited to see what new readers stumble upon this post with some faulty googling!

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:

For a wonderful and detailed review of the show, please visit Solo Lisa, and for more information on Obakki and to view the line's current collection, visit Obakki's website here.
