I love my Juicy and was exceptionally pleased to hear about Bird because they really did bring it home for me by taking inspiration from the English countryside. I've always felt Juicy to be a really casual (but gorgeous nevertheless) brand and I love it... but I was glad to see them take another perspective and go more... fashion.
Is the feeling mutual?
I'm warming up to their Fall 2010 collection. I don't love everything on it, but the ones I do love, I love. And I've started to take the photography and model away from the outfit as I think has its way of making the outfit seem better than it might actually be... which is why I always have to look at items on the shop floor. Although fashion is art, I think that a good piece can shine on its own.
