Elin Kling, she of fashion blogosphere fame, has designed a capsule collection for Guess by Marciano. 'The plan was for me to design 18 pieces, but I couldn't stop and the collection ended up with a total of 33 pieces,' the Swedish blogger admits on her site, Style by Kling.
Hitting stores in November, the limited-edition, Spanish-flavoured collection of feminine blouses, dresses, denim and leathers was inspired by the style of matadors. While the pieces mainly follow Kling's signature monochrome look, there are some flashes of autumnal colour, including a striking purple and yellow Aztec print, and a cosy oversized mustard-coloured jumper.
Kling models the collection herself in the lookbook, and Paul Marciano escribes her as 'typically our customer' - a natural choice for the brand when it was sowing the initial seeds of the project. It seems the affinity is mutual, with Kling completing her sketches two days after going through the Guess archives. Record time.
