Dagg and Stacey Spring 2009 Lookbook

Dagg and Stacey Spring 2009 Lookbook

At the height of British Imperialism many of the affluent found themselves able to travel to new and unexplored lands, bringing their polite society and china services to the safari. This moment in time is so beautifully illustrated in the memoir Out of Africa by Isak Dinsen. The Dagg and Stacey Spring/Summer 2009 collection is guided by the spirit of this intoxicating journey. The look features relaxed tailoring, clean lines, and hand dyed appliques for an effortlessly feminine feel.

Dagg and Stacey was developed by the combined inspiration of Karen Dagg and Stacey Paterson. Established in 2001 in Toronto Canada, Dagg and Stacey had a clear intention from the beginning. Guided by a strong sense of feminine tailoring and an informed nod to vintage detailing, Dagg and Stacey appeals to those whose attention to quality and style are paramount. The label is known for its eclectic use of colour, pattern and texture, with each piece framed by their philosophy of creating beautifully cut and consistently feminine designs.
