Newsflash: Devi Kroell is my Design Hero

Tuesday, April 28, 2009


Austrian-born designer Devi Kroell — whose debut ready-to-wear line you may remember I shamelessly gushed over last year — was in D.C. recently as the guest of honor for the grand opening of the very cool high-fashion boutique Hu's Wear. Her insanely gorgeous pieces were even prettier in person (I'm seriously contemplating rolling my Louboutin fund into a Devi Kroell pleated eelskin clutch fund). And Devi herself was just so sweet and incredibly well-spoken about style that she pretty much instantly skyrocketed herself into my top five favorite designers, right up there next to Mr. Elbaz.

I did a small q&a with Devi here, but here's one of my favorite parts:

Q: In a crowded fashion industry, how do you create something new?

Devi: One thing that really inspires me is architecture. I find more inspiration in architectural shapes than vintage fashion. I actually really hate vintage clothes.

Q: Which explains why your designs have a very modern feel.

Devi: The '80s are very trendy now, but I would never say, "Let's redo Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' jacket." No way. I'd rather look to the future.

So, sort of thankfully, there will be no Balmain-esque jackets in her future — just chic, airy, exceptional clothes, like these favorites from her spring collection. Including my oversized eelskin fantasy bag. Droooool.

Pleeeease post about your new distressed skinny jeans! I bought a pair a month ago and LOVE them but can't find the right way to wear them. I've gone with the baggy white t-shirt, scarf and heels look but am not confident i'm pulling it off. Advice would be much appreciated!

Thanks for introducing me to a new designer. The pictures are great and I like that it is a pretty nude palette. However, it doesn't appear to be boring whatsoever. The clothes appear to be airy (like you said) and effortlessly chic. I'm in love with that white and gray patterned coat in the top picture. Simply beautiful!

Interesting!

The latest fashion trend in apparels today is the skinny jeans that give you a lean look. However, if you are unable to get into those, you would also be happy to put on those wide legged pants or trousers that are also hot with the fashionistas. When worn with a short narrow top and a slim fit jacket along with high heel shoes, this combination would look cool and give you that much longed for lean look.

Try it out this season!

Have you heared about a game which you need use rappelz rupees to play, and you can also borrow rappelz gold from other players? But you can buy rupees, or you will lose the choice if you do not have rappelz money. If you get cheap rappelz rupees, you can continue this game.

Im 18 years old and as a struggling student who enjoys racing UGG Boots ultra short Le its becoming extremely expensive and harder to attend and enjoy a days racing. Sure a student with a part time UGGS upside job would have to save for a few weeks to consider attending a raceday as expensive as this. I see that Fairyhouse are racing on the 19th of this month and are charging UGGS whitely boots 5e entry fee. Its up to other tracks to follow suit and use some initiative to offer better value to the normal racegoer….Pretty good air jordan post. I just found your site and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your Bailey Button UGG Boots posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your blog and I hope you nike sb post again soon!
