Desperately Coveted, More than Anything Else Right Now
Wednesday, May 23, 2007
I am in awe of people with seemingly endless creative talent, which is exactly how I feel about May C., the designer formerly known as tiny red bird (and now known as hellosparrow) who – if you remember -- was behind my fantastic Christmas cards last year. Now, May has teamed up with Kelly at Déjà Vu Vintage to create one-of-a-kind silkscreened vintage pieces. The second I saw them, I gave an excited little squeal and started counting my pennies so I can purchase one asap.
This first collection – with new creations arriving at Déjà Vu about every three weeks – features darling dresses, tops and purses emblazoned with guitars, skulls and guns. I love how May uses the silkscreened images to completely reinvent the pieces – a plain neckline becomes both unexpectedly pretty and very punk when artistically decorated with skulls. I can't wait to get my hands on one (or three) of her designs – stop on in to Déjà Vu or contact Kelly about how to order your own.
