Remember that time Canadian fashion director George Antonopoulos designed a Fall capsule collection for Danier and a certain blogger (read: me) went out and bought half the collection and wore it non-stop all season? Well, I’m living that right now and it’s about to happen all over again. Yesterday, I got a sneak peek of Antonopoulos’ second outing for OBJECT for Danier at the leather retailer’s Spring 2012 preview; not surprisingly, half the collection leapt instantly to the top of my Spring wish list.
Antonopoulos and Danier have, smartly, remade some of the most popular styles from the Fall collection in new material and colour combinations. My favourite leather dress, for example, is being produced for Spring sans sleeves and in the loveliest grey and pink suedes. The croc-embossed envelope clutches are back too, and are as to-die-for as ever. I’ve been toting the original black version from Fall all over town, and now I’m lusting after the orange…or perhaps the white?
I’d normally try to make a case for getting both colourways, but there’s no room for that in my Spring OBJECT budget; my wish list is already quite lengthy. In addition to a banker’s envelope in a yet-to-be-determined colour, I’ve also got my eye on the caramel leather shorts, perforated suede henley and royal blue leather pants (seriously!). Throw in a yellow skinny belt for good measure, too, and I’ve got all my coloured leather needs covered next season. Because, in case you were wondering, coloured leather is a legitimate need (not want), especially when done this well.
So which pieces are you needing from round two of OBJECT for Danier so far?
