Wolcott: Takemoto’s SS12 collection

  Tuesday 8th November 2011

Wolcott: Takemoto is a US label founded by Joy Wolcott and Natasha Takemoto. It is a very recent brand; their first line having been launched on October 10, 2011 at the Manhattan Inn, in New York.

Their inspiration comes from gardening magazines, with  the colours of the garments even named after flowers. The pieces of the collection are named after influential women in the two designers’ lives : their friends, their mums, etc.

The silhouettes are simple and feminine; see through blouses, short dresses, maxi skirts and shorts. The fabrics are fluid and the colours pastel. The detail on each garment is also very interesting, especially the buttons that run along the spine on the blouses and on the white mini dresses.

We do not want to wait until summer to wear that beige full-length skirt: with a knitted cardigan and flat ankle boots, this look could easily become an essential of our winter wardrobe.

The recurrent theme of the collection is the Peter Pan collar. With dresses or tops, the Peter Pan collar is seen on every single one of them.

Another key piece of the collection is the bright blue pair of high waisted trousers; these are great for day-time or evening wear.

All the clothes of this collection are made in New York, and will be available in stores for Spring 2012, so we will have to wait a little bit longer before we can get our hands on these pieces — they are definitely worth being patient for.
