If you haven’t watched the documentary Grey Gardens by brothers Albert and David Maysles, you should. It’s a little sordid but fascinating.
It features Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter “Little Edie” (as she was known). Little Edie has become a fashion icon because of her irreverent Bostonian 40’s chic and slightly alcoholic take on how to style. She was known for her multi use of sweater/head wrap/pin combos. She has stuck in my mind forever.
I decided to take the best of Little Edie and threw in a little punk rock for some updated edge. There you have it, our Spring 2012 Collection – Dark Gardens.
