Brookelynn Starnes, who in 2006 started Cloak & Dagger, likes to reference vintage but never literally. Says Starnes, “Women don’t often wear many of the vintage silhouettes anymore, but many of them have great details. I try to create something that borrows from the feeling of vintage garments but interpret them into something a woman today would feel comfortable in and want to wear.” With a background in styling and an interest in vintage fashion and design, Starnes also consults on the men’s and women’s collections for Libertine. The past fall Steven Alan featured Cloak & Dagger’s cropped motorcycle jackets and they were a huge success. When asked about the spring ’09 collection Starnes said she would describe it as a “hyper-feminine and flirtatious take on summertime style.” Via Steven Alan.
