Crowned Bird Launches New Collection: Be A Kid Again

image

Last month, I had the pleasure of collaborating with a few other like-minded creatives to shoot the look book for Crowned Bird's newest collection, BAKA or “Be A Kid Again.” It’s no secret that I adore Crowned Bird clothing. The completely cute ’60s-inspired silhouettes that designer Priscilla Barroso creates always capture my heart.

BAKA, which is coincidentally also the Japanese term for “foolish” was heavily influenced by Barroso’s recent trip to Tokyo and harkens back to the whimsy we felt as imaginative children, while remaining a fashion-forward line that can span seasons. As always, unique prints and fabrics were a major part of the look and feel of Crowned Bird’s newest collection, with use of printed fleece, flocked chenille, brushed suede, colored lace, and waffled fabrics.

A big thanks to everyone who collaborated on this look book, including designer Priscilla Barroso, hair stylist Jasmine Sarah, make-up artist Erin Freeman, and artist Jenny Gacy.

Check out the rest of the look book after the jump, and shop the new BAKA collection here!

Dressing the Sound: Jenny Gacy of The White White Lights

Note: This story was written in July for Backbeat Austin, two months before the devastating wildfires occured in Bastrop, TX.  Jenny Gacy and her boyfriend, Jonas Wilson (also of The White White Lights) lost their home, recording studio, and most everything they owned in the fires.  For information on how you can help Jenny and Jonas, as well as other victims of this terrible tragedy, please see the links listed at the end of this story.

The first time I saw The White White Lights, I was immediately drawn to their potently energetic short-haired front woman, Jenny Gacy.  The group is an experimental indie glam rock band from right here in Austin, TX.  That night, Gacy was peering over the mic with her strategically drawn cat eyes.  She simultaneously shrieked and crooned hauntingly while pounding on her keyboard to the sweaty packed crowd, turning the dusty ground of the Emo’s outdoor stage into a dance floor - all while wearing a little black dress and kitten heels.
