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 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.
