I found the article about Rachel Antonoff’s collection in NYFW through modaCycle & Habitually Chic and I was instanlty attracted to the designs, the artwork, the hair and the whole mood. She claims her inspiration was Minnie Mouse fused with Wednesday Addams – she’d had me at this line!! These charecters may be tottally irrelevant but Antonoff managed to work the magic! When asked to describe a typical night in the Antonoff Manor, fully illustrated by Alia Penner, she easily exclaimed “well, they’re getting ready to murder off their pets and they’re preparing their pet cemetery. I think they’re being really creepy in there.” Looking shy and innocent? I don’t think so! Besides the whole idea behind the collection I think it is an amazing way to show off a collection instead of catwalk – more affordable for the designers, more creative for us!
