Sunny days are here in New York, though layering is still needed. I’ve been working on a few jumpsuit designs in the studio, starting with this first version that features a simple drawstring waist. This style is cut from Japanese cotton which I sourced in Tokyo last spring. The embroidered windowpane checks are cut on the diagonal at the top, followed by meticulously aligned checks from the waist down.
A great development from doing this Fashion Travelogue series is that I’ve been inspired to dig into my wardrobe archives from the past 10+ years for some styling options, including this speckled A.P.C. cotton blend tee (reminiscent of sprinkled Momofuku rainbow cake crumble B’day Truffles and candy gumballs).
I styled the rest of the outfit with my go-to Rachey Comey braided leather wooden platform clogs and a bright red Cynthia Rowley handbag with (what I think are) a duo of bluebirds on the front.
Jumpsuits will definitely be making it to the Jamie Lau Designs web shop later this year. Stay tuned for the next installment of Fashion Travelogue!
