Not to be confused with the glossy campus just a few blocks over, EMERSON collection is a Boston-based line by designer Jackier Fraser-Swan, located in the fashion famous neighborhood of Newbury Street. I caught sight of their work in a Boston style magazine and was immediately turned on by their guarantee of loose, athletic tastes that somehow blended with this perfect femininity and care. The sharp lines that layered delicate fabrics, the muted tones of abstract Rorschach-reminiscent prints. My favorite pieces from the collection had this arctic sort of color scheme that I found to be so subdued and calm in contrast to the loud effervescence of many ss12 trends. (I love both, of course, but it's interesting to go to a place of that polarity.
P.S.: Back from my brief intermission in blogging! This break has really given me time to reassess and restructure certain aspects of my blog, cool down from the textbook overload (only one more month!), and just take my guard off in general. More posts soon and thank you for being patient with me. :)
