It's that magical time of year when the leaves turn color, the cloudy skies swell with water, and you add a warmer blanket to your bed. This collection was born of the love- well let's be honest, borderline obsession, with Fall; a time for sweeping romance! Whether that be with someone else or yourself. We drew inspiration from fiction's past like Jane Eyre! Heart broken, soaked through, collapsing on cliffs against the background of sweeping coastal scapes. Or Elizabeth Bennet, with her muddy, trodden skirts, unruly hair and stubborn attitude. Strong Marianne Dashwood and her unflapping devotion to finding true love- catching her death while whispering in the rain before her lover's castle, "Willoughby!" These characters hold near and dear to our hearts for many reasons, but mostly because it is a telling of the world through the female gaze. And it is in a time when female gaze fiction was not common. Austen, Alcott, and Brontë are 19th century women that wrote complex stories about sisters, independent women and female friendships, proving to the publishing world that not only did women deserve their rightful place alongside men (even if that came to be by writing in the guise of a man) but also that people wanted to read their stories. We relate so much to these books and so many of the relationships written by these women are still exactly true of us all today. We imagined a modernized telling of these stories through our garments. The formation of this collection really came together with the inspiration of fall time female gaze, dramatized of course, against the rainy cliffs of Scotland, streets of London, and countrysides of Ireland. We firmly believe one of the most wonderful experiences in this life comes from our close friendships- those mornings after an uproarious evening out, a ball, a bar, a boy, a girl, or whomever you may have kissed last night, recounting the moments and telling secrets into cold gusts of wind, or nestled warmly, giggling in bustling pub corners. Wherever it be and whenever, we have been leaning on each other for centuries, and these outings, these reckless nights and cozy mornings with our friends have outfits attached to them like colorful bookmarks in our lives. Clothing is never just clothing, it's like music or scent and when confronted with clothes of your past it can conjure floods of memories. At Selkie we strive to make collections that serve as the perfect accompaniment to your vivacious lives, like olives to your martinis, frosting to your cakes, the perfect looks for your main character moments, and all the drama woven into yards and yards of ruffles for your well deserved Highland flings and your follow up cliffside declarations in the rain.
