Even when the Vanishing Elephant boys were only designing for their own sex, we were exponentially jazzed with every new collection. They took note, much to the relief of girlfriended males whose new paisley shirts kept inexplicably disappearing, launching their debut womenswear collection in Spring 2012.
Fall 2014 is the latest from that line, and the hype is still strong. Enticing us into the chillier season is a curated selection of tomboy-meets-girl pieces that are everything we’ve come to love about the label. Denim plays a starring roll, with purposely unsexy overalls and dark denim dresses mixed in with idyllic prints and clean-cut separates. Suiting can be scary, but a relaxed gray blazer and trousers paired with a colourblocked sweater seems like a relatively non-threatening entry point.
The rest of the looks skew sporty — swelling florals adorn bomber jackets, hot pants like you’ve never seen them and T-shirts looking cooler than ever (yay). Think hot, as in the hottest girl in gym class, which is sort of fitting considering this will probably be your winter uniform.
