capes & capers: new fashions from grazed youth

Wednesday, May 26, 2010 | by Carolyn Price

Red Capelet by Grazed Youth

Red Capelet by Grazed Youth AUD $99 from the indie art & design store

Super cute new Grazed Youth fashions from the Make, Believe collection are in store now at indie art & design! Designer Amelia Thompson has such a flare for quirky, clever designs and each piece is made beautifully. Amelia describes her collection very appropriately, "Like a small child sticking bubblegum in their sister's hair; Grazed Youth garments are compelling in that they play between a sense of fun and a darkness lurking below the surface."

I absolutely love Grazed Youth's capes and capelets! Not only will they keep your neck lovely & warm during wintery weather, but you can imagine yourself as a storybook character - perhaps Little Red, or even a devilish reinterpretation of Snow White... Pop the hood over your head for extra cheekiness!

Tartan Ruffle Cape by Grazed Youth

Tartan Ruffle Cape by Grazed Youth AUD $179.50 from the indie art & design store

Fans of tartan will adore the Ruffle Cape pictured above, and the Crochet Cape in black (below) offers a lighter, delicate version which you could wear with almost anything. We also have in store Grazed Youth's lavish Edwardian Collar Ruffles with their contrasting black trim & white lace, accentuated by a cameo brooch at the front & small strings of imitation pearls!

In addition to the capes & collars, we have a selection of Grazed Youth garments & jewellery. The Slouch Tees are made from 100% merino wool and are so soft. The fabric drapes beautifully, & is perfectly suited to Amelia's sweet, loose-fitting style. Love the screen printed playing card suit details - the Ace of Spades for the red Slouch Tee & the Ace of Hearts for the cream. This theme continues with the gorgeous Spades Pocket Print Skirt...
