Serial Cultura

by jennine on May 18, 2010

San Francisco may not be the fashion capital of the world, but there are a few great designers around here. Serial Cultura is one of those designers whose collections will be sold at OAK NYC next season, so keep an eye out on this label. I have been in contact with Jen Jennings, the designer for some time, but we didn’t meet until the AOK SF pop-up shop last month. Immediately I noticed how beautiful her scarf and blouse was, soft cottons and lush silks, with prints that could easily be works of art themselves. Serial Cultura’s signature is the original printing, and unique twists to classic pieces, a tee shirt, isn’t just a tee, it has cut to it that’s both flattering and modern.

As much as I love going to trunk shows, I think I need a new lens…the place was packed, and I could hardly get a good shot of the clothing on the racks. So I lifted the AW10 photos by Eva Kolenko to show some of what’s in store next season.

Worn in real life… Jen Jennings, the designer for Serial Cultura, the times I’ve seen her, she wears her own label so naturally.

Stylist for the AW10 shoot, Sharon Maloney, seen at the trunk show looking chic in Serial Cultura.

I love discovering new designers! Those tops look so light and airy too…perfect for summer weather and really lovely prints as well. I wonder where Jen Jennings got that necklace? Do you happen to know if she made it? Really neat stuff..

Love indie designers … this is a really, really good thing to see their work and understand who they are and what the collection is about. Sometimes, maybe mostly, it’s just a quick walk-by a rail of clothes and if it’s not The Color or The Fabric it may never be discovered.

ooh yeah, it’s hard when you’re trying to discover indie designers, and all you have to guage is the racks…i personally love to see it in real life, or styled by someone to get a better idea of how it works. unfotunately you don’t get to see it often with indie designers.

What lens are you using now? Those are nice shots in quality but I can see how it’d be hard to get “full” shots in a packed space. I have a lens I love, but it’s 1:1 ( I use it to take pics of my jewelry and it’s perfect for that) it has such a great picture quality, but it sucks for taking pictures of anything else cause I have to go waaay backwards to get everything I want in the frame.

oh i’m using a 50mm f1.8, it’s great for outfit shots outdoors but you have to get so far away to get a good photo. which is a pain for anything indoors.
