After a few years of running her curated thrift shop Makenew (2468 Agricola Street), local designer Anna Gilkerson knows what the people want. And not just when it comes to design and the fabric, but the price too. Her second line, Älskling (which means Swedish for "darling"), combines all three of those considerations in a collection of women’s clothing that boasts strong neutral colours, clean lines and summery lightweight fabrics in the form of cotton eyelet shirt-dresses, embroidered trousers, jersey t-shirts, as well as some of Gilkerson’s altered denim designs.
Älskling, her first foray into clothing design in three years, launches online and in store this Saturday, May 30. Peep the prettiness here.
