Nobody whips up effortless summer style like New Zealand designers Rachel Easting and Anjali Stewart of Twenty-Seven Names. Oft-described as having a "public school aesthetic," the down under label consists of casual streetwear pieces designed for the young and young-at-heart.
Their flirty new summer collection falls somewhere between Laura Engels Wilder and Alicia Silverstone circa 1993, with gauzy prairie dresses, lacey crop tops and floral-print pleated shorts (styled, all, with bobby socks and hiking boots). Rounding out the collection are lilac crochet swimsuits, sheer chiffon cocktail dresses, and a series of tees printed with art credits (e.g. "Jenny Holzer, American, born 1950. Gift of the artist, 1988" -- you get the idea). Should you be seeking light summer outerwear, we're digging the light linen blazers and colored denim jackets.
