Those Twenty-Seven Names girls are like the quiet kids in class who show up, get good grades, but don’t feel the need to brag to everybody about it. (Must be a Wellington thing.) Last night they unveiled their new Summer range, Twelve, in my opinion, their best to date. Inspired by 60s female artists, protesting, sexual politics, and the statement, ‘Words tend to be inadequate’, the clothing is a mash up of pretty vs androgyny; sailor vs hippie; dainty vs sturdy. Juxtaposition is the new singular vision, didn’t you know? Accompanying the clothes is a stop-motion film directed by Michael Humphrey, the second the brand has released. And I’ve gotta say – if this whole fashion bizzo doesn’t work out for them, I have no doubt they’ll be able to make a name (or 27, ZING!) for themselves in the moving picture industry.
I LIKE YOU!
