We're Loving: Sportsgirl's Collaboration with Konstantina Mittas

    Australian fast-fashion retailer Sportsgirl has teamed up with one of our favorite down-under design talents, Konstantina Mittas, on a capsule collection of seven pieces just in time for Australia's spring season (and our warm September).

    Inspired by a fanciful daydream involving stone statues coming to life and deciding to start their own rock band, Mittas' "Flight of the Stone Angel" collab incorporates her over-the-top tailoring techniques with a goth-punk twist. Executed in a palette of pale pink, white, metallic silver and black, the collection packs a tweeny-bopper punch but can still be assimilated into adult wardrobes. A shouldery cocktail dress in shimmering pink, for example, is equal parts fairytale princess and Balmain.

    We're coverting a simple black sheath dress in pebbled silk, and the Snow White-esque "Lady Miranda" frock in ivory lace -- we could even pair both with black tights to keep the pieces relevant straight through 'til holiday. Budding girl bands would be well advised to outfit their first music video entirely in Mittas' stage-worthy garb.
