I have a shopping problem. Have I admitted this to you in the past? One of my favorite things to do is go to the movie, not for the movie itself, but to scan that screen for the latest fashion trend. I call it a passion, my husband calls it a sickness.
Recently I received a press release about American designer, Sue Wong. She has been had selected by Sony Pictures to design a collection inspired by the highly anticipated film Eat Pray Love. (Eat Pray Love, will be in theaters nationwide on August 13, 2010.)
I was so excited to see this line, before the movie hit the screens. I’m also excited to give you a sneak peak!
This luxurious ready-to-wear collection will launch nationally in August 2010 as a special limited edition collection for fall 2010, available in fine department stores such as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom’s, Lord and Taylor and Dillard’s, as well as on www.saks.com, www.bloomingdales.com and www.SueWong.com.
The collection influenced and inspired by the story’s focus on the beauty and exotic essence of India and Indonesia, specifically, rich colors and textures, exotic flair, and intricate embellishments. This mixed with the exquisite details and superior handcraftsmanship that Sue Wong gowns are known for have created such beautiful collection that’s nothing less than wearable art!
“When I read Eat Pray Love, I immediately identified with the story, as many aspects of Elizabeth Gilbert’s journey were synchronous with my own personal odyssey,” said designer Sue Wong. “Because of the immediate connection I felt to the story, as well as its emphasis on the culture, philosophy, and, in particular, alluring mystique of the East, I was able to create a collection that was striking, exotic, and timeless, and organic to the journey in the book and forthcoming film.”
I love the detail off all the pieces. Please be sure to visit www.suewong.com/eatpraylove to see more of the collection.
