Sophomore


I recently discovered the brand Sophomore, which I read about in Nylon when they did a little bio on it. The line was described as a sort of laid back 70s vibe with dresses and pieces fit for Venice beach. I can tell you that the 70s is definitely my favorite era above any other and I must say, after hearing that thats what the line is based off of I was already pretty hooked. Sophomore was initially started by the tshirt maker Chrissie Miller but then later grew to include the line of sportswear you see today with extra designing help from Madeline von Froomer who has worked at Proenza Schouler.

I can tell you now Im basically dying over the aqua shoulder cut out dress, the black zipper tank and peach zipper skirt. Sadly with my budget I wont be able to afford any of these pieces, though Id really go crazy if I owned them. Arent they just lovely to look at?

Annie said...

oooh, the peach zipper skirt is so yummy. and the aqua cutout dress is THE PRETTIEST COLOR EVER.

Sunset said...

I agree, that dress is amazing! I just love how fun and casual it all is... I do love to see a (real) smile on models.

E said...

Yummers. I just love how the Sophomore photoshoots look so comfy!

Damsels said...

they are very nice .

but at least you look like a million bucks and you cant buy style ..

The Voguette said...

i love the simplicity of the line - and i have actually stumbled across it on a blog before - although never gotten a chance to buy it - but this certainly makes me want to give it a try!

xox.

Such a fresh vibe!

Amelia said...

I'm not totally into the 70s, but I love these pictures! They make me want the clothes, too. It looks like a nice lifestyle.

Annie said...

The 70s is my fave, too! :)

u know u could always DIY the zipper top.
*just grap a tank that is a bit small on you
*cut straight down the middle
*sew on a thick zipper joining the two halves of the tank together

Talk Pretty To Me said...

I am gaga about that peach zipper skirt. Sadly its way out of budget for me. boo. I do wish designers would produce items that were more accesible to everyone. fashion should not be so exclusive.

This is a beautiful lookbook! Kind of reminds me of Dazed and Confused.

TheGlamorousEccentric said...

The designers are really cool also. Good people so support!!

oh lady e said...

That peach zipper skirt is a dreaaaaam. It looks like it'd be a pretty easy DIY, as long as you have the right materials.

Anonymous said...

well maybe if you just suck up to the designers a tad bit more, they'll send it to you for free, i mean that's what you're asking for here, right?

Faridah said...
