Organic Beauty

I want to start by saying a HUGE thanks to my beautiful friend Roee who was so sweet on Sunday, I think he's going to be our new male house-model. He came by and we shot some of our organic t-shirts on him - isn't he gorgeous?! I love photoshoots (especially when I don't have to be the model!), and he was super-amazing. There's more photos coming as well, but these were 2 of my favorites. Of course, it helps that Shai is an amazing photographer.


In other news, we've finally finished that puzzle-dress we were working on, wait until you get a look at it, I'm so happy with the way it turned out! Besides that, we're on a roll lately, and we've got another new top in the works. I won't go into to much detail, but you're going to love it.

A day dedicated to lovely

  

We've finally been getting settled here in the new apt/studio, and I have a new obsession - flowers! The guys at the local flower shop either already know me or just like ladies, because every time I go there, I get a free flower - today, I put it in my hair and couldn't resist the camera-urge

For a while now, we've had these pillows we experimented with a while back floating around, and I decided we needed somewhere comfy to chill when we're not slaving over PopLove, so I put together a "Pillow-Carpet" - what do you think? I love the corner we've got there now, with all the awesome coffee-table books, it's tough not to just sit there all day rolling around looking at them!


We're still working on the puzzle-dress, but we're making some changes, so you'll just have to stay tuned to see the surprise!

Some new items and a feature!

So the first new and exiting thing is that we are featured on the www.senseofashion.com shop page!


Besides that we have been very busy and have created a funky geometric scarf from recycled materials of course.  It comes in two colors at the moment, and with more to come soon! Check out the pics:

We've got a blue version of the sleek'n'sexy jacket, and we've also made a new version of the fluted skirt. This one is blue/gray/black


And next week we will have a new dress ready, it's very exciting and colorful.  A bit of a Japanese feel to it.  Pics coming soon!

Patchy peony

I'm seriously in love with our new studio space. It's so much easier to work, we're on a roll! Not only have we finished a new jacket (see the last post) and a new skirt, we've got another set we're shooting today! And a scarf!
 
I promise that soon we'll get some shots of the new space (including our "stairway to awesome"), but in the meantime, check out our newest skirt! What do you think of the flower addition? I love it.

New studio and a new jacket

We've been really busy moving to our new and cozy PopLove studio.  The new space is great and makes the creative process much more creatively fun.  We've been working on a new jacket, a super-futuristic-Renaissance type one.  It's nice and structured and of course it's made from recycled materials.  We've made it in cream color and in a size small, but more colors and sizes are to follow. 

Also in the works are a sexy stripy skirt and a patchwork dress...

For now checkout the pics of the new jacket!

Seasonally Inappropriate

Well, I've just got back from an awesome vacation in Canada to see my family, and I'm coming to realize the HUGE difference (at least regarding the weather) between here and the rest of the world. I had a super-amazing time hanging out with my family and doing a whole lot of nothing :)
One of the things I'd forgotten is how much I love wearing sweaters! I just don't get much of a chance over here, which is probably why we're nearing November and our newest shirts are backless >_<
That said, you've got to admit - these are pretty awesome.

So, on that note, we've been trying out a few more "seasonally appropriate" designs. I'll keep you updated, promise!

Treasury fun

Letely we've been enjoying creating online collections of items that we like from fellow Etsians. Etsy is a great place to find all type of creative handmade items online. So here's a couple of our recent collections, called "treasuries".

Enjoy!

Autumn = chilly fingers

I love autumn. It's always been my favorite time of year. Here in Israel, you don't get much of an autumn since anyways the winters here are just like a good old Canadian fall. BUT this year, I'm in luck! Next Sunday I'll be sitting my toosh on a plane back to Canada to soak in all the changing leaves, ripe apples and chilly breezes I can handle!

Anyway, one of our newest items here are some adorable fingerless gloves! I've always had a thing for them; I hate regular gloves because I have abnormally long fingers and always seem to poke holes in them, and I can't stand mittens because you just can't do anything in them! Fingerless gloves are the perfect solution, plus, they're just a little bit punky-looking and I love that. Here's a few samples, we'd love to hear what you think!

By the way...

We did a fashion show back in July. I never realized it, but we never posted any photos from it! Probably because the day before the show our compy had a nervous breakdown and we didn't have a proper computer for a month, but I digress.

It was a smashing hit, and looked so amazing! We had some great help from a few super-talented people like Talya Friedman (co-coordinator), Whitney Wright (makeup artist), and a few beautiful models as well. If you couldn't make it check out the photos:

Oh my! An update!

Well, I'm a little late with this post, but I suppose the old saying still applies... anyway I've got something fun to post about. We've been working on a new top and it's finally up and ready for you to check out! It's a new & improved version to our previous "rock'n'roll" top... but what do you call something that's more rockin' than rock'n'roll?? Heavy Metal! Alright, so what's so different about it? First of all, besides the awesome chains in the back, we' added a satin ribbon tie at the bottom (it's hard to see in the photos, check it out in the etsy listing). Besides that, it's also DOUBLE-SIDED! Inside plain black, outside, Jackson Pollock-style paint splatter in white. So check it out, it's our new Heavy Metal top. Questions, comments and critiques are, as always, muchly welcomed.

Etsy Treasures

Hi! I know that in my last blog post I said I'd be blogging a lot more, and that until now I haven't followed though with it... sorry! Anyway, I had the idea to share some of the wonderful treasuries we've been featured in on Etsy, so from now on, I'll be posting a treasury each day that we've been featured in. For anyone who's not Etsy-literate, a "treasury" is a list of goods available for sale on Etsy that has been put together by the site's members. With literally millions of things for sale, it's pretty awesome to be featured :)
Check out this one by MerryRoseBerry:



It's called "Recycled Wardrobe Treasures" , and I love the whole concept, especially that everything here is made from recycled materials!

I'll be back a lot more often now with new posts, I promise!

By the way, what do you think of the new layout? We're still playing with it, so we'd love to hear your feedback.

Cheers!

Thirsty for change

We're really excited to be a part of the "Thirsty for change" fashion show next week! If anyone's in the Tel Aviv area next week, be sure to stop by and check it out. The show is promoting awareness of water conservation - a serious concern this side of the Mediterranean. We're really looking forward to it, and we'll be sure to post photos afterwards for everyone who couldn't make it person.
If think you might be able to make it, check out the details on the facebook page:

Works In Progress

I completely didn't realize that it's been so long since we posted anything! Anyone who's been following us on Facebook has seen a bunch of our new pieces that we've been posting on our Sense of Fashion shop. Things are crazy busy (as usual!) but I'll be sure not to forget about posting here. As well, we've got some really cool new geometric designs that we've been working on. Take a look and tell me what you think!

T-Market time!

For those of you who live in Israel, you'll know that the T-Market is an event that every streetwear fashionista waits for. We were in Herzliya this time around, and had a great time! We met some rather tall friends, got a visit from Shai's mum (Noodle was particularly happy about that!), and met some other amazing people... but kept forgetting to take photos of them! Well, next time we'll certainly be sure to be more camera-happy, but all in all we had a great time.
