Dunedin based jewellery label Underground Sundae‘s designer, Anne-Mieke Ytsma draws inspiration for her SS 12/13 collection, from a single still-life drawing of a fruit basket by Carravagio, as well as images of Tokyo street fashion portraits from cult fanzine ‘Fruits’, the fanzine showcases the uniqueness of fashion in Harajuku, throughout the 1990s.
‘IN BLOOM’ SS 12/13
Daisy, Daisy give me your answer do
I’m half crazy all for the love of you…
In my make-believe the dark things creep in.
Petals are plucked in questioned love.
Bruises on fruit deepen and bloom
In beautiful pinks, yellow and nude.
Fruity crowns, clustered daisies and string charm necklaces, make-believe in super awesome reality with ‘In Bloom’ SS12/13
I wanna be a princess, you can be my king.
I’ll do what I’m told and everything.
Alongside the collection ‘SM loves US’ is a collaboration of pastel coloured leather bondage pieces by Steph Miller for Underground Sundae.
SO HERE WE ARE
Covered in bloom, covering the truth
An expanding life
Join hands to fight, for you are
Bloom up-ground, love who you are….
