Jimmy D SS18 - The Volcano Lovers


Little project with Jimmy D, Meadowlark, Cait and Beverly Lim.

Jimmy D's Volcano Lovers collection draws inspiration from the french volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft who at the end of their lives died together in a volcano. Mixed in with delicate, beautiful blossoms from Meadowlark. Can you spot the one burnt matchstick too? A Meadowlark X Jimmy D collaboration to accompany Jame's fiery collection. I hope to own a pair one day. 
The creative Beverly Lim let her creativity go crazy to make this colourful look.

What I Wore Day 3

The first show of the day was Jimmy D so of course, I wore my favourite Jimmy D pieces. The MAGIC CITY dress James made for my ball and the B*WITCHED crop top! I was so lucky to be able to wear a large lock necklace from Meadowlark. With my classic stacked Docs, a vintage Levi's leather fringed jacket from Trademe, paid like $25 for it.

Jimmy D SS18


I have so much love for James and what he does! How he can create a garment that looks amazing on a young person and look equally if not better on an older person of a different body shape. It's very common for mum and me to argue over who gets to wear a Jimmy D piece.

Katia and Maurice Krafft inspired this collection. They were a couple who were volcanologists who died in a pyroclastic flow on Mount Unzen, in Japan, on June 3, 1991.

Here are my favourite pieces from the collection. I'm going to be very broke soon, as I need every garment in this collection, especially the Silver jacket!
