Think “eco-fashion” and Tori Amos and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs don’t exactly spring to mind. But the music icons are precisely who Mr. Larkin’s Casey Larkin tapped for inspiration when she first conceived of her Fall/Winter 2010 line. (Missed Mr. Larkin on the runways this season? That’s because Ms. Larkin is about to hatch a Little Larkin.)
Another person who’s primed for motherhood is Sasha Duerr, Larkin’s partner in dye (Japanese maple leaves, mint, and acorns are used to color the pieces) and co-founder of their new Adie & George line of 100 percent West Coast-sourced knitwear. “It’s been baby central around here,” Larkin tells Ecouterre.
“Fallen Fairy” is less consciously demure than Mr. Larkin’s previous forays on the runway.
“Fallen Fairy,” as the collection is dubbed, is less consciously demure than her previous forays on the runway but no less alluring, featuring drop-crotch harem-pant jumpsuits, high-waisted jodhpurs (in Mr. Larkin’s first-ever print), and spunky flared miniskirts in organic cotton, hemp silk, and recycled polyester.
