There are two sides to every woman (and sometimes a whole lot more). Taking their name from the female rivals immortalized in Tchaikovsy’s ballet Swan Lake, Bay Area fashion talents Nichole Kreglow and Stephanie Bodnar turn that notion into clothing infused with just as much of virtuous Odette’s sweet innocence and grace as temptress Odile’s flirtatious mischeviousness through their up-and-coming label OdileOdette.
Part of the Gen Art Fresh Faces in Fashion event tomorrow night, OdileOdette is set to deliver new pieces to the runway (be on the lookout for a killer open-front top in green paired with a sassy-but-smart pencil skirt, as well as the label’s signature asymmetrical sailor pants) just in time for the show. Expect the same refined, yet modern silhouettes of the design duo’s previous work, which Kreglow and Bodnar dub “Victorian mod,” alongside eco-chic elements like buttons made of tagua nuts (a.k.a. vegetable ivory).
Here, a few images from the current OdileOdette lookbook and, at the bottom, a shot of Kreglow and Bodnar.
