Color and Collar

Eleven Objects collar and vintage embroidered dress on Linh Thi

At an event at Union Pool in Brooklyn, I snapped a few photos of Eleven Objects' Linh Thi, who I thought, wore color beautifully and displayed an ease and elegance quite rare in a sea of contrived darkness and manufactured grit. I must confess I had to talk her into letting me photograph her in the Sambas, which she was somewhat ashamed of, but I though this particular sneaker-dress combination was quite charming.

Eleven Objects' collars, originally made for women, have been featured in The New York Times and Style.com. In the first men's collection, designers Linh Thi Do and Christine Rhee were inspired by vacation photos of their fathers in the 70s, Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, and more recently, fashion blogger Steve of Hard Liquor, Soft Holes, of the grandly gauche style and signature gift bow concealing his identity. Here are photos from their lookbook:

The one in white perforated leather would beautifully top off a minimal outfit.

I love that she paired her dress with bruised up sneakers -- shows this girl has style but doesn't take herself too seriously. Muah!!
