  • Who’s the Designer: The design duo behind Remi Canarie, Lisa Rigney and Liz Patelski met while students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC).  
  • What’s the inspiration:  Continuing with the brands aesthetic of blurring the lines between menswear and womenswear giving way to an androgynous approach to clothing.  In playing with traditional menswear silhouettes and re-purposing the shape by slimming the cut or focusing in on fabrications that give more drape instantly ooze femininity.  Stand out details of this spring/summer 2014 collection is a series of prints that they developed based on photos Patelski took during a road trip last summer.  The prints are used in number of different ways and speak to the wanderlust in all of us. 
  • Why it’s relevant: Rigney & Patelski have been dubbed the next creative genius to come out of Chicago that will be this town’s next Creatures of the Wind.  This notoriety was cemented by being one of only two runners up in the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in 2011.
  • Where to  buy & wear it: This spring/summer 2014 will only be available exclusively at Roam Boutique.  Roam seem familiar?  Well it’s because I featured this shopper’s dream last year.  Mallory Ulaszek, owner of Roam strongly believes that Remi Canarie has a “great range, textiles and craftsmanship”.  This in turn sparked the need to become the exclusive destination for the brand.  Pieces that you should be added to your closet for spring to ensure you usher in spring with laid-back ease are their short ‘power suits, shirt dresses and the bustier.
