New Zealand Fashion Week: Twenty Seven Names & Riddle Me This
Jelly sandals and Tumblr-inspired styling.
The first important thing to mention about Twenty-Seven Names is that they had jelly sandals — or jandals, as they are therefore known in the fash biz. (Coincidentally, the footwear that Australians call 'thongs' and Americans call 'flip flops' are actually known to Kiwis as 'jandals'.) A pervasive strawberry print and polka dot pattern also pointed to childhood nostalgia, but the considered cuts of the dresses were anything but immature. Pom-pom beanies and ankle socks were fun touches.
