|OK so you remember that ah-mazing green from butter London that I spotted backstage at the Vena Cava show during New York Fashion Week? At the time, it seemed like forever until we’d get the chance to wear it. Well, the launch date is getting closer and closer and I have a preview of British Racing Green and the rest of the Fall 2009 butter London collection.
Nonie Creme, butter London Creative Director:
Nails will be a huge part of your F/W wardrobe this year. Interesting nail colours with specific “personalities” will give you an opportunity to reinvent the many black, grey, and neutral outfits on offer.
I designed a broad spectrum of colours for the Fall/Winter 2009 Fashionista’s Favourites.
Dark, “hunter green” that was the backstage darling when used at the F/W 2009 shows.
Minger – British street slang for an ugly person. “Did you see that face? What a minger!”
An edgy burnt orange like the one featured on the Philip Lim and Prada catwalks. This shade “ups” the fashion factor of any outfit.
Scoundrel – An unprincipled, dishonorable person, villain, or scamp. Your ex-boyfriend, your builder, and your boss rolled into one.
A medium tone purplish-mauve that can appear darker or lighter depending on what clothing you are wearing.
Pearly Queen – A Pearly Queen is a woman dressed in a traditional Cockney costume covered in mother-of-pearl buttons.
A winter white with an added pearl sheen for softness and depth, making it beautifully wearable.
Rosie Lee – Cockney Rhyming slang for a cup of tea. “Put the kettle on Love, I fancy a Rosie Lee.”
A parade of pale pink glitter that will lift your spirits AND your outfit.
I won’t have actual samples to show you for a bit but according to Nonie, we should expect new packaging with this collection. Hmm, I wonder what it will look like. The bottle of Thames I have from over two years ago was square with a thin rounded cap, then came the flat wide bottles & caps.
Any predictions on how the shape will change? Which colors tickle your fancy? Share!
