This is Neurotica
Checking my favorite blogs regularly has become like taking my daily vitamins. I can’t say enough good things about Fashion156’s blog in particular, a wondrous blog that has brought such designers/labels as Alexandra Groover and complexgeometries into my life. And now I’ve been introduced to yet another lovely label that encapsulates my main fashion interests, namely local production of unique handmade pieces, affordable prices, and, of course, jersey! The label in question is London-based Neurotica, which is “is a unique, concept driven fashion label specialising in original illustration, print and textiles that explores the contrast between the sweet, the sinister and the beauty in the everyday.” For now, they only have their S/S 09 collection posted on their NJAL page and in their online shop (example above). They do, however, have a wonderfully sinister video posted on their site for a sneak peak at their upcoming A/W 09/10 collection. A couple of photos are floating around of these new pieces (examples below), but you truly need to see the video to see the lovely cuts, open backs, and cape/wing-like details of the seemingly simple jersey tops. There’s also a lovely oversized cardigan with a tree print which I would snatch up in a heartbeat. Just lovely!
