hartmann nordenholz and the slouch factor

I've loved the Austrian label Hartmann Nordenholz ever since i first saw this dress in my book 'Young European Fashion Designers' (Which you all MUST get- some of the pictures are really lovely), and on a random search on google (believe me, i do alot of these random searches!) i found their website. It turns out that one half of the design duo behind the label studied under Helmut Lang which i think is an accolade in itself non?

Anyways, it turns out their spring/summer collection is even nicer than the dress that i had originally fallen in love with. It now has what the dress had not, not only does it have hartmann modern tailoring touches but now it has the bagginess that i find appealing...

Ok, I must admit, i love slouchy clothes (my friends call it my garments that just don't fit right...)and as you will most probably get to realise that i am always complaining that something needs to be looser/baggier, and i will often buy something bigger and sew it up so it's tighter in the places i want, but still has the all important 'slouch factor'. But what HN has to offer is really more than satisfactory to all of my baggy needs...


My favourite peice from the collection has to be the top below, the detailing is almost skeletal.

Ohh I like these outfits although I can't seem to keep myself out of everthing tight at the moment!

I may have to take your advice on returning the underwear, although it looks kinda pretty upon my wall..

Thanks for stopping by XX

I adore the slouchy look, but I always find it difficult to draw the line between cool slouchy and pure flabby looking. I always end up looking the latter :(
this blog looks set to be cool!
much love
