We were happy to have the chance to talk to Cee & Ana, the lovely designers with ANARKH Designs, about their inspiration and style tips for the fall collection. This amazing trunk show is here for five full days at Dovecote beginning Wednesday, October 1st, through Sunday, October 5th.
What has been your inspiration this season?
The Fall-Winter 2014 collections were inspired by the short stories and poetry of Edgar Allan Poe and the surrealistic etchings of Gustav Dore.
What is your favorite piece from your collection and why?
Ana: The POE coat, because it was the first image to pop into my head and sets the tone for the rest of the collection.
Cee: The LERI pants are my favorite piece, because they are possibly the most comfortable leather pants ever, and they make everybody feel good, look good, and get that little glimmer in their eye!
How do you view your personal style?
Ana: I really like men’s clothing, grunge, and rock. I love stealing some of my brother’s clothes and mixing them with our pieces.
Cee: I love drama when it comes to dressing. I want clothes that make me smile when I put them on and are a bit adventurous.
Do you have recommendations on styling items from your collection?
Our pieces are meant to be played with – many styles are versatile and some have multiple ways to be worn. We want women to make our clothes their own – play with them to reflect their own personal style and vision. We also encourage our ladies to mix and match with favorite pieces in their wardrobes.
If you could provide one piece of fashion advice, what would it be?
Pick one part to emphasize – if you go big on top, minimize the bottom, and vice versa – but never both!
Check out the beautiful collection at Dovecote this week! We hope to see you there!
