The Next Big Thing: Raveur Clothing

Wednesday, October 25, 2006

I am obsessed with finding the "next big thing" in fashion. Never content to wear what everyone else is wearing (although I do follow my fair share of trends), I am on constant lookout for the undiscovered. My latest obsession is Asian designers and my newest find is South Korea's Raveur label. Talk about hot.

These clothes are gorgeous. The are ladylike, without being stiff, and have this season's trends down pat... even from halfway around the world! One of my faves is this Knitted Vest & Muffler Set. It is a super thin knit that is perfect for layering. Pulled on over a loose turtleneck, as shown here, it has a boho-luxe look that is chic and trendy.

The Belted Pouf Dress is sleek and uncomplicated, but has smart details that are quite designer-y like the tiny pouf hem, slightly gathered waist, and perfectly situated belt. This is a dress that works for work and, sans long-sleeve shirt, would heat up your evening wear wardrobe thanks to a deep-v neckline.

I love the utility of the Turtleneck & Double Buttons Skirt Set. Not sense Grranimals has purchasing a matching set yielded such style. The look is warm and classic and each piece stands on its own as a great wardrobe basic. The Turtleneck is available for purchase alone, but for just $26 more you can pick up both pieces.

This hot Ruffle-front Ribbon Blouse is pure style. The draped silhouette and heavy bow are made a little more rugged by the roll-up button sleeves. It's a great juxtaposition of feminine and utilitarian details.

The nubby knit of the Half Sleeve Long Cardigan and Muffler is so inviting. It's right in line with this season's chunky knit trend, but the looks completely different from the styles I've been seeing in stores. A little trendy plus a little unique edge adds up to a perfect sweater.
