just wasted quickly-diminishing blogette time (scheduled outage fast approaching!) cruising this designer’s website.

art-brute09 is maria francesca pepe’s first experiment at merging her jewelry, accessories and womenswear lines into one cohesive collection.

though i find it somewhat puzzling that this doesn’t happen more often (especially in the street-style genre of fashion) it’s certainly refreshing to see. i have to admit, when someone chooses to defy convention and present a new perspective, i’m instantly intruiged.
by the way – bras and ranties is adoring this neck piece. with slight concern that after a few skinny-bitches i’d become armed and dangerous, i love what it brings to the dress.
