This weekend, Danielle Everine of recent Project Runway fame is unveiling her new fall 2011 capsule collection, “Call Me Ishmael." The collection is said to be inspired by life aboard a ship, and features soft, silky dresses juxtaposed with heavy, utilitarian outerwear in wool, leather, oilcloth and rope. The looks also feature custom textile prints by local illustrator Lisa Luck, and for the first time, Everine is debuting a collection of travel handbags with laser-etched motifs. Here are some of Everine's sketches of the line:
I also adore Lisa Luck's hand-illustrated poster for the show, "Call Me Ishmael":
The collections debuts this Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. at Cliché, 2403 Lyndale Avenue S, Minneapolis, 612-870-0420, www.clichempls.com.
