San Francisco Designer: Bird Couture

I met outstanding San Francisco Designer Irys Kornbluth during San Francisco Fashion Week’s Emerging Designers runway show and got a chance to share some of her fun menswear pieces in my San Francisco Menswear post this Fall.

I recently teamed up with Aimee of The Ohio Transplant to show off some fun ways to wear the fun, bold new Bird Couture COLOUR collection.

We ventured from San Francisco to Oakland to scout some great locations & backdrops with the designer, some of her fun new pieces, and of course, my favorite photographer Jennymay of J.Villarete Photography.

This was an especially fun project from a sartorial standpoint since Aimee and I both have a very distinct sense of personal style. While I gravitate towards classic silhouettes & retro styles, she’s got a really fun, modern look, and you can always count on her for a killer hat!


{You can pick up these fun pieces here – And hurry, it’s a limited edition collection!}

For this first look we each styled a new Bird Couture COLOUR top – I paired mine with slim, cropped jeans, a statement necklace & oxblood pumps while Aimee chose a long waist coat, distressed boyfriend jeans & fabulous strappy heels.

How would YOU style your Bird Couture?

Stay tuned for our next look!

  1. You both are definitely different in your own ways but stylish no doubt =)
    I would wear it with a leather jacket and skinny jeans. Probably with a pair of boots =)

  2. I love how disparately different your styles are, yet you came together for this post and were both able to rock some of her pieces. While you know that I adore your style, I think my personal fashion sense is a little more like Aimee’s! Her pieces seem to add an awesome splash of fun to any outfit.

    • I think you might be right Casey – You guys both favor those fun statement pieces like a great hat or killer shoes! 🙂

  3. You and Aimee are too adorable! I love your different styles!

    Aimee is killing me with those heels and her beanie – love, love, love! xoxo, Bethann

    • Right? She’s going to go home one day and have no shoes because I’ve snuck in and kidnapped them all! 🙂

  4. Had such a blast working with you on this, love!!! 😀

  5. i love your oxblood pumps, so pretty! aimee’s style is cute, however seems like only a lady with height (or love for killer heels) can pull it off.
