Ottawa Fashion Week A/W '12- !Nu.I

I fell in love with !Nu.I fashion every since I interviewed designer Vickie Joseph a year ago where she expressed the idea that the brand was meant to empower the "superwomen of the world".  I still got a strong sense of that idea with this season's collection that tossed up a bit of vintage cuteness and a bit of modern edge.  Notable styling included crimped hair and oversized glasses that matched both feminine A-line skirts and hot straightcut leather dresses.  While leather and earthy patterns were a great match, it was nice to see the inclusion of light knit sweaters for a more practical everyday piece.  The collection also reminded me of what a lovely and versatile colour teal is.  Standalone, it was pretty and vibrant, but I enjoyed it most when paired with black as an excellent contrast.  There was also a great variety of cuts and designs.  From shirts and skirts to structured outerwear with belts, most of the collection was practical enough to wear on any day- if you're into a bit of an edge.  My favourites from this collection included the A-line skirts and fitted jackets.  The collection was presented as ready-to-wear; though, not ready-to wear enough to wear on a typical school day.  With that said, I can see most of these pieces being combined with jeans or a casual sweater to make it work for an occasion.

  1. Ahh...the blue satin dress with knee highs is killer. Also loving the leather trend. I was afraid it was going to fade out, but it looks like it's just beginning!

  4. Nice to see Ottawa's talent on display. I'm quite intrigued by the knit dress layered over leather sleeves with a bright peter pan collar
