She needs no introduction. Her funky cool style gets her noticed right away, whether it’s her hair color at the moment or her impressive shoe choice for the day, Olivia Anthony is a force that cannot be reckoned with. It was a Summer afternoon when I got the opportunity to meet her by chance one day as she dropped off her resume at my “then” job, I got to chat with her for a bit and immediately became intrigued especially because of her Southern accent, and her stylish flare. A couple days later, I ran into her again at Aunty June (Ambrose’s) closet cleaning sale where she was shopping & interviewing, it was there that we exchanged information and kept in touch via social media.
Just a short time ago, she released her Spring Summer ’15 capsule collection for the world to see, and vibrant, breathtaking, and creative are just a few of the words that came to mind when I first saw it. It is sheer brilliance. From the beautiful dark skinned woman in her ads to the beautiful hues of neon to the bleached brows to the whipped chocolatey skin to the abstract backgrounds, it’s perfection that was executed well. Her one of a kind pieces are sure to break necks and leave heads tilted. As quoted by Ms. Anthony “This collection is not for the faint of heart but the daring trend setters whose approval of others is neither desired nor required”. She just wants to make art and it’s obvious, and I am here for it.
Me personally, what I love about each piece in the collection is that they speak for themselves, and that’s exactly what style is,.. the power of your clothes to speak for you. Obsessed is an understatement, I WANT EVERYTHING!!! Olivia Anthony equates FEARLESSNESS.
Stay tuned for a candid interview coming soon! But in the mean time, check out the pics below and go see what else she has up her sleeves at oliviaanthony.com
