Don’t get me wrong. I love a minimalistic collection/ piece just as much as Kanye West loves, well Kanye, however sometimes a girl can’t help but look for something with a little more pizaz. Enter in Voyage Clothing. An LA based company imagined and brought to life by designer Brittany Belz, whose mission is to take her “customers on a Voyage by creating an eclectic, worldly inspired collection that portrays the cultures, colors and styles of different cities and places she has either traveled to or admired.” Such a philosophy is admirable and appreciated in my book.
One of the easier parts of being a fashion blogger is finding that super cute outfits from Top Shop or Zara and photographing it in your back yard, or some equally photogenic local destination. That was typically the inspiration that is drawn out from cute skater skirts and the ever so classic and timeless jeans and t-shirt combo. A simple backdrop for a simple outfit. However, one of the truly remarkable characteristics of Voyage Clothing pieces is they truly inspire an adventure worthy of the piece. Truthfully dear readers, I had envisioned this adorable “Honolulu Hoodie” many a times. I contemplated a shoot either at the beach, or a harbor, or even Palm Springs! But alas, I knew an ordinary blogging adventure was not sufficient for such a fabulous piece. An adventurous piece required an equally epic story to accompany the first time wearing it. And wouldn’t you know adventure and appreciation of travel around the world is just what the designer had in mind.
Based out of LA, (designed and manufactured) Belz gets the So Cal fashionista. Yes, one can have a million simple tops but if one wants to stand out, one must learn to be different. And different can be achieved with so many different pieces, and levels of adventure with this label. Whether it be a wild accent such as my favorite Hawaiian printed hoodie, or something more traditional with a subtle statement accent such as the Cortu Denim contrast tee, there is something to inspire even the most basic days and help one stand out in a crowd of stylish angels. Try on one of their paces and attempt to resist the urge to immerse yourself in scenery of palm trees and or ruggedness I dare you. Currently their pieces can be purchased on their website, Voyageclothing.com. And fun fact, their Fall 2015 collection just recently launched and trust me, it is sure to bring out the Veruka Salt in you and make you say “I want that.”
