Electronic Sheep AW 11/12

Some people have shoe fetishes, bag fetishes, or jewelry fetishes; I have a sheep fetish. It's the next best thing to having an actual sheep. Some people would be offended to hear "I saw a beautiful painting of a sheep and thought of you" from a friend; I'm touched. Some people have pictures of their kids on their walls; I have two photos of sheep and a photo of a nubian goat. Some people count sheep to get to sleep; I count sheep to wake up. Please don't call Dr. Phil. 

Anyway, you get the idea —I have a deep/slightly-disturbing grá for all things sheep. I guess it goes without saying that I was in love with Electronic Sheep's Autumn Winter 2011 collection before I even saw it. 

I remember how excited I was to discover the graphic style and bold patterns and colors of this Irish label way back in January, and I'm even more excited now to see that this Autumn Winter collection continues on the same insanely creative, eclectic, and cool (woolly) thread. Love that the collection is inspired by an "idle life of splendor" (aka my new life goal), and that designers Brenda Aherne and Helen Delany have added a hooded cape—the result of an inspired collaboration with DJ duo The Broken Hearts—to their offerings.

I'm especially hearting the black-and-white hooded scarf and the yellow cape (but I'd be happy to take the rusty cape, brown-and-grey oversize scarf, and a few hats off the back of the truck, too!). 

Some people might say I'm developing an Electronic Sheep fetish ...
