I love the elastic harnesses because it can dress up any plain tee and make it really sexy. The fringe necklaces and earrings are great for people who don't want to put too much into a possible passing trend. The leggings, well, I wish I have one right now (because I don't feel like shaving my hairy legs and I want to wear a mini skirt!)
There are some other stuff such as cage skirt, fringe skirts, and tops as well. These are just highly unique and beautiful! This would cost a crazy amount if the designer was one of those name brands, but I Heart Norwegian Wood is extremely affordable, so go check her stuff out now!
Here's another piece of exciting news, Shrimpton Couture now has I Heart Norwegian Wood designing them an exclusive collection!!~~ YAY~ Another great collaboration. More info about Norwegian Wood's creator after the jump
Description taken from Shrimpton Couture:
Angie Johnson started Norwegian Wood in 2008 after working in the mainstream fashion industry for just over 8 years. Although Johnson has been designing her own mini collections for independent boutiques since 1997, after graduating from university in 2002 she spent her time working for larger companies such as Silver Jeans, Industry Clothing and Manager Jeans. In 2005 Johnson and her partner Tyson Bodnarchuk opened the HQ boutique/gallery in Montreal featuring work of independent designers and artists. After 3 years of being surrounded by indie design at the boutique Johnson decided in 2008 that it was finally time she gathered up all the knowledge, contacts, ideas and skills she'd accumulated over the years, and put them to work by starting Norwegian Wood.
An online favorite, Johnsons designs have graced some of the internet's finest bloggers such as Susie Bubble; Queen Michelle; Tavi and Rumi as well as countless other stylish bloggers the world over. Norwegian Wood designs have also been featured in magazines/sites such as DuJour, Elle, Nightlife, The National Post, Lou Lou, Refinery 29, Modish and Worn Fashion Journal. Norwegian Wood was recently contacted by Topshop to be part of their Fall 2009 EDIT program which features 30 designers from across the globe with a special pop-up concept store in Topshop Oxford Circus from Sept.-Dec. 2009. This is the second edition of this program, and the first time a Canadian designer has been asked to participate.
For this exclusive capsule collection, Angie has taken the best of her designs and incorporated vintage elements to create unique one of a kind pieces available no where else but at Shrimpton Couture
