Chatting with Family Affairs

June 3, 2013

Today, I am very excited to share with you this special outfit post along with an interview I did with one of my favorite designers Nina Egli of Family Affairs! Family Affairs is a cross-Atlantic mother-daughter duo with daughter Nina in New York and mother Kaya in Switzerland. "From New York, Nina gathers and sends packages of visual inspiration: essence, fabrics, colours, and shapes, across the seas to Kaya and the process begins to take shape. Then delving into Kaya’s archives they pull designs, which they adjust and refine to create the bone structure of each piece." Seasons after seasons, I have been a huge fan of Family Affairs' simple yet whimsical designs. From telephone pattern to crystal print, from peter pan collar blouses to flowy feminine dresses, the Spring/Summer 2013 collection is especially darling! I seriously love them all but one of my favorites is the Minnie overall dress I am wearing here. It has such simple and classic silhouette that goes with everything!

  1. Such a beautiful outfit! Love your bag, it's soo cute x

  2. wow, amazing questions and answers! I love how she describes what she does when she isn't working, and how it is still a huge source of inspiration for her work. It is funny how the littlest things can sometimes be most inspiring!
