Adhesif Clothing’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection has a relaxed hipster chic vibe that channels Little Red Riding Hood, Jackie O., and Woodstock, all rolled into one!
Wear the sophisticated three-quarter length Oh Jackie Jacket (above), made from reclaimed wool, plaid-tartan, and vintage wool blankets, finished off with an eclectic assortment of vintage buttons.
Or, take a stroll down memory lane in the Little Red Riding Hood inspired
bright plaid Concha Capelet (above) or the Cache Cloak (below) that features
a fitted hood and contrasting wrap-around belt and cuffs. “Hands down,
the Cache Cloak is my favourite piece in the entire collection,” says the
Montreal born Vancouver designer, Melissa Ferreira.
“I used a lot of vintage tweed, wool suitings, and printed cotton twills in a colour palette that reminds me of a sunset on an open field in the prairies,” explains Melissa. “Many pieces have a drapey feel to them but
pieces like the Cache Cloak (above) and the Sticks & Stones dress have a ‘sack or box cut’ look.” (below) which has fun pockets and an exposed back zipper. Leave it loose or belt it for a more fitted look!
Have a foot-stomping good time in the earthy Saddle Skirt (below), a high-waisted layered number. Be artsy chic in the reversible "Suit Wrap Scarf" and the Boom Town Blouse is sure to brighten up those cool autumn mornings (made entirely from reclaimed printed cotton twills)
“This collection was shot by Patryk Widejko http://widejkophotography.com/
at the amazing Native Education Centre,” explains Melissa who loves that the space actually resembles a traditional longhouse. “The cedar gives the feeling of a natural setting and the door
we used in many of the shots actually represents the leaving of all negative energy” – so fitting for this environmentally friendly line!
