[Fashion News] – Orphan Bird

Good Afternoon readers.


Have a listen to Applebottom – Let You


Minimalistic art, style and fashion is what I am currently channelling in my time in London. Moving here, I am opened to this vast other collection of style and design. I’ve come across a brand that owns the minimal style with its broad range of bold, sharp cut collections.

Is the Scandinavian brand and holds its retro-futuristic approach to fashion style, with elegance and with flawless individuality. The duo is formed by Ciro Supino (Italian Designer) & his partner Sarah Lohman (Photographer/Visual Artist). They founded Orphan Bird in 2012 and it has currently established itself as a promising brand.

Also does anyone from the 90’s remember jelly shoes. Those were some wonderful shoes!


The brand takes its inspiration from minimal aesthetics, lines are very important and as a visualiser you can see where they come into place in the designs. The brand is fierce, but more in a subtle manner, unlike the previous brand I mentioned Paradigm Shift. Their minimal approach is more energetic, whilst this brand favours subtleness and gentle imperfections.

The duo really make a wonderful team, as they both have the same vision. The clothes against the photographs are marvellous, they offset each other nicely. You can see the clothing, the sharp cut and minimal approach and at the same time, the beautiful artistic style of photography. Really pushing the designs forward in their collections.


It is easier to just view the images selected for this post. Words cannot portray a collection that is better seen visually. Please take your time to see the designs, the crisp cuts, the minimal palette and so on.

It comes from images collected from sites like Tumblr. All things chic, minimal yet awkward. Beautiful interior design staircases and so on.

I love these images, the boldness against the subtleness, the white against the black, the lines against the shapes. Perfect in many ways.

The images here are taken from their site, but were originally used as inspiration from Tumblr.


So many thanks for following me with this post and viewing this brand. It has an edginess, much like Alexander McQueen.
