Frances Baker, Autumn Winter 2012
Frances Baker is a small independent label from Australia, kept under the wing and creative mind of founder Josephine Frances. The pieces are handmade, eco-friendly and very practical, too. Although the look book I’m posting today is for the autumn-winter season, it’s the one in the Southern hemisphere, so we can just as well enjoy it now.
The look book is intimate, cozy, with glimpses of a bedroom, a library and a garden. The prints are very discreet, the colors are pale, the fabrics are mostly natural and there’s little accessorizing and layering. It’s basically a collection of pieces that you can wear everyday, or rather a wardrobe. My favorite is the Falling-Leaves dress, which just happens to be hand printed. I also love the collars and the knee socks, good friends of mine in spring and autumn.
