Baunilha&Chocolate - Vanilla&Chocolate

Português
English (uncheck the other box and check this one)
Aqui estão as fotos possíveis da colecção. Foram tiradas com um pouco de pressa (o fotógrafo é uma pessoa muito ocupada, lol) e finalmente tive um pouco de tempo para escrever esta entrada:

Fato Badgley Mischka (jaqueta e calças), bolsa Dublin:

Calças do fato Badgley Miscka e casaco vintage Christian Dior:

Um look mais casual: calças Badgley Mischka, top Burda Jan2009 mod106B e colar de concha:

Ainda acerca das calças, houve um pormenor que esqueci de mostrar: os colchetes especiais que usei (são óptimos para calças):

Vestido Burda Jan2009 mod 106A (ainda não tinha mostrado) e Capecho da Vogue #2

O detalhe do Jersey estampado do vestido:

Ops, quase me esquecia da jaqueta Brisa de Neve!

Conclusão: é uma colecção clássica e intemporal, ideal para usar no escritório, e creio que resultou bastante bem. Gostaria de ter incluído mais peças: uma saia feita com o tecido castanho que sobrou e o vestido do molde vintage Christian Dior, mas o tempo não dá para tudo e ultimamente tenho tido bastantes dificuldades em organizar o meu pouco tempo disponível; as coisas vão-se acumulando e atrasando e é uma frustração não conseguir fazer tudo o que pretendia. Idealmente esta colecção seria apresentada a meio do Inverno e neste momento estaria a apresentar a colecção Neo-Punk Britânico, um estilo mais jovem e descontraído que tem muito a ver comigo. De qualquer maneira, a julgar pelos desfiles para o próximo Outono-Inverno, pelo menos o meu tecido preto a imitar pele de cobra vais ser tendência e possivelmente irei completar esta colecção com algumas modificações dependendo da inspiração do momento.

Até à próxima!

Here is the Vanilla&Chocolate collection; the pictures were taken in a hurry (my personal photographer is a very busy person, lol), and I’d like to show some more views, but this is all I could manage.

Badgley Mischka pant suit (jacket and pants)and Dublin bag:

Badgley Miscka pants and vintage Christian Dior coat:

A casual look: Badgley Mischka pants, BWOFJan2009mod106B top and seashell necklace:

There’s a little detail that I forgot to mention when I wrote the final post on the pants: the hook and eye closure, reinforced with an extra button:

This is BWOFJan2009mod106A dress and Vogue’s Capecho #2:

A detail shot of the Jersey print of the dress:

And I almost forgot the Snow Drift Cardigan!

Conclusion: I believe this collection is classic and timeless, ideal for wearing to the office and I’m very pleased with it. I’d like to have included a few more pieces: a skirt using the remnant brown fabric and the dress of the vintage Dior ensemble – I plan on sewing both next fall. On an ideal world this collection would be completed in mid-winter and now I’d be finalizing the British Neo-Punk set which is a collection that speaks loudly to me and I feel bad not being able to present it now. Maybe next year… Judging from the fall runway shows that were presented recently, at least my black snake-like skin fabric will be a great hit so I might start off with this collection next fall, with just some minor changes depending on the inspiration at the time.

Hope you’ve enjoyed following along the Vanilla&Chocolate collection! See you next time!

what a great collection!! my favorites are the 106B dress because of the jersey material, the vintage Dior coat because it is just fabulous, and the snow drift cardi. I love how you mixed in both sewing and knitting.

Absolutely stunning work!

Thanks Tany for showing your new garments. They look beautiful and fist like a glove really custom made.
Always a pleasure to see your new outfits, enjoy wearing them.

Tany as always your vision and construction of the garments is immaculate! This is a very pleasing collection and I love how it has both knitted and sewn garments in it. I know you are moving onto spring/summer sewing now but it will be fun to watch you revisit this collection in the fall!

What a chic wardrobe! It's perfection, as always. I llvoe the print of the jersey dress. Lovely!

KayB said...

Gulp... Gulp... (wanna have! some of the pieces....)
It really turned out beautiful, Tany. What I really like is the fact that you incorporated knitted items into this collection.... maybe I should start doing this as well and not just start knitting. It might save some frogging... :-)

Joyce said...

Tany,
You do such wonderful pieces. It is always a joy to see what you're working on. I can hardly wait to see the next pieces.

Que colecção! Ficas-te uma uma série enorme de possiveis modelos. Gostei de todos e de todas as combinações criadas. Tens é de mostrar melhor o vestido que fizes-te, pois na foto tem o casaco vestido e não dá para ver bem o modelo.

Bravo!! These truly are timeless pieces, and I know it's a disappointment, but your NeoPunk Collection will be a smash even with the wait...

Just beautiful!! Love the coat - you did such an amazing job on all the tailored pieces (and everything else!)

Congratulations on conceiving and creating such a beautiful collection.

Jackie said...

Tany, as always, BEAUTIFUL!!! I love your work!

Celina said...

Que bela colecção! Muito versátil e elegante. E digo o mesmo que a Mónica, tens de mostrar melhor o vestido! ;)
Estou ansiosa por ver a colecção neo-punk britânico, com o tempo incerto como tem andado, ainda vais muito a tempo de fazê-la e usá-la!
(as pessoas aqui da zona, habituadas a cultivar a terra e a ler o tempo de modo infalível, dizem que a chuva que não está a cair agora vai cair em Maio e Junho...)

Absolutely stunning and inspiring! I have been following you blog for a while but not left a comment before - had to say something!! I followed the link through to Crochet by Jane for details about your fantastic Dublin bag - is there any way to view the instructions in English? I would love to make one but can't understand it at all Lol!

Summerset said...

Great collection! This will work so well for the transitional season - the brown is a bit softer than the usual black.

Lorêny Portugal said...

Você realmente ´emuito talentosa!
Eu, como você, adoro costurar e tricotar...Quem sabe um dia vou aí pessoalmente ver o que vc cria com tanto gosto!!

Abraços do Brasil,

Christina said...

I just love how you give your collections different themes. These pieces work so well together. As usual, you've included several stunning pieces - your Dior coat is to die for! And you really set the bar with that Vogue suit.

Ana Carina said...

Simplesmente Lindo! Adoro todas as peças da colecção Baunilha & Chocolate. Tenho uma queda para as baunilhas...o capecho branco é lindíssimo e o fato castanho é muito sofisticado e prático para trabalhar.

Em suma, estás de parabéns e já te disse muitas vezes, mas és a nossa motivação! Ver as tuas peças de roupa feitas com tanta perfeição dá-nos vontade de costurar!

Beijinhos

I almost can't decide which one I want to borrow from you!

Jenaveve said...

Looking forward to reading back through your blog posts.
