Redefining Single

No matter how you spin it, bright colors and prints will always reign supreme in my world.  When I discovered the brand Single, I was drawn to the the vibrant selection of hues and patterns for dresses, blouses and more.  I wanted to get a closer look at what Single offers, so I stopped by the warehouse to wander down the aisles and pick out a few items to try on!

Single was co-founded by the married duo Galina and Michael Sobolev in 1994.  It embodies the individuality of style and confidence and was created to reaffirm every woman’s zest for life, romance and luxury. Using delicate silks and one-of-a-kind prints, it was quite obvious that I would be attracted to her clothing line.  Let’s take a look at what I discovered in this downtown space!

Cascade dress

The Cascade dress is a fun flirty dress to wear on date night or a fab event.  I love the cut in the front and the draping in the back.  It comes in several different colors.

Claudette maxi dress

You can never have enough maxi dresses and I would definitely add this to my wardrobe.  This print is beautiful and the fabric is very soft to the skin.  The cut in the front and back give you something to look at both ways! This dress is perfect for that sunny vacation or resort!

Janessa Jumpsuit

I have yet to find a jumpsuit that fits me well, and I think that this might be the one! The Janessa jumpsuit was so easy to put on and felt effortless.

Silky Smooth Wearable Art – Bryony Shearmur

A lot of the brands I write about originate from events I attend and the curiosity to learn more.  I went to the Hollywood Style Awards and loved the photographer who took black and white snapshots of attendees and made sure to get her business card.  As I was leaving, I was handed the same card by another individual and all he said was “you should check this out.” Enter Silk by Bryony Shearmur.

Bryony is an artist who has taken her photography to the next level by making it wearable in the form of silk scarves and pocket squares.  Originally from London, she was inspired by the things she loves about LA , thus creating a collection as a tribute.  Since moving to the city in 2001, she had the vision to have her images presented in some type of printable form and silk was the key to bring them to life.

I had the opportunity to meet with Bryony and see firsthand the high quality and uniqueness of her scarves.  I immediately fell in love with these beautiful works of art from cherry blossoms to mustard seeds!  Made of 100% Habotai silk, each scarf is handfinished and signed by Shearmur.  They are definitely making their mark on the fashion industry, with a recent feature on Extra as a holiday gift idea.

These accessories are a great conversation piece and will enhance any outfit you wear, adding a bit of LA captured in a “real” moment.
