I love Aussie success stories. Especially fashion ones! So when I heard about Bless’d are the Meek’s recent success in the US I thought I should share!
From January 2012, Bless’ed Are The Meek will be sharing coveted hanging space with designer threads by Alexander Wang, Vena Cava, Elizabeth and James and fellow expatriate sass + bide in 30 of the US’s most exclusive boutiques, including American Rag, Planet Blue, Westerly, Wasteland and Big Drop in Seattle, Houston, Chicago and Miami, as well as along the hallowed fashion strips of shopping Meccas Los Angeles and New York.
Bless’ed Are The Meek’s US launch collection is a contemporary and inspired take on summer’s hottest trends. The range is vibrant and exciting, pairing bold pops of colour with a paired back neutral palette, textural and flowing fabrics with tough-luxe hardware embellishments, and featuring graphic and psychedelic prints, Aztec goddess inspired motifs, sheer cut-outs, directional glam rock styling and feminine draping.
Elizabeth Hehir from the label’s American fashion agency The SYDNY says the response to Bless’ed Are The Meek in the US has been overwhelming.
“Every buyer, stylist and editor went nuts for it! They said it was one of the best collections they had ever seen,” she says.
We heart Bless’d Are The Meek especially for their killer festival gear. And with Stereosonic a week away what better time to buy up! Their latest collection entitled ‘Festival’ has some serious fashion street-cred.
Inspired by Woodstock, Patti Smith and the independent spirit of the bohemian movement, the collection is equal parts glam-rock offspring and hippy love- child, with pieces that let you channel your inner 1970’s goddess.
“Festival” by Bless’ed Are The Meek is reminiscent of counter-cultural legends and icons of eras past. Think silk-feel dresses in fluid fabrics, quirky-cool playsuits, trapeze tanks with Navaho and Aztec inspired motifs, graphic prints, patchwork and fringing, intricate crochet detail and tough-luxe hardware embellishment for a inspired take on boho-blend styling. The range is vibrant but wearable, pairing rich, earthy tones with a paired back neutral palette and butter-soft denim.
