StyleOnTheCouch Loves: Amber Sakai

The lovely people at Amber Sakai recently got in touch with me about their designs. I was already aware of Amber’s core staple, her bodysuits, because they perfectly satisfy my love of lingerie as outerwear and are easily worn from a slouchy morning in my apartment to a late afternoon brunch with friends.  Have a look at this, one of my favourite pieces from her forthcoming Spring/Summer 12 Collection:

Amber’s designs are modern and playful.  I was thrilled to receive the drop waist lace jacket from their SS 11 collection from them and I wore it a great deal in the Big Sur. It was the perfect cover-up and I adored the satin tie around my waist that pulled into a big luxurious bow.  Many of Amber Sakai‘s designs are created from fabrics that drape for a great fit, making them comfortable and easy to wear. Below is one of my favourite looks from Amber’s AW 11 range

Not unsurprisingly, Amber has a background in lingerie design.  I think this is most clear in her gorgeous Weekend line – nine versatile and essential pieces: leggings, skirt, button down top, a light lace overcoat, lace bra, lace top, and a zip-back faux leather skirt

I love this whole outfit.  LOVE.

I covet a great deal of Amber Sakai, Blog Reader, because she so wonderfully matches my style aesthetic.  I do hope you check out her website sometime.  I’m planning to feature more of her designs on StyleOnTheCouch in the near future, including an in-depth look at her SS 2012 collection.  If you want a sneak peek in the meantime however, you can check it out here.

      There is definitely something about the style aesthetic that attracts me. I love that these pieces work for going out or staying in, if you see what I mean. I’m really looking forward to the SS Collection launching soon, too. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    I can’t imagine a jacket that would better suit your love of lingerie as outerwear. It’s absolutely beautiful and delicate, and that bow tie has a lovely bedroom feel, and yet it’s completely perfect for every day- and frankly, it would be a shame not to be able to wear it out of the bedroom! I shall have to investigate Amber Sakai’s designs further :)

    I’m excited to finally see this jacket! I remember you raving about Amber Sakai, and you were spot on as usual. The black lace is a nice change of pace for you- your comfort zone color wise but a nice texture to boot.

      Next season has a lot of red and neutral colours, including a gorgeous trapeze style red dress I’m very tempted to get for next summer. I remember telling you about Amber Sakai, too!
