Website I Love: Twenty8Twelve (Oh Yeah, and the Clothes Rock Too!)

17 Aug

Savannah and Sienna, from Twenty8Twelve.com

I’m aways traipsing across the Internet, clicking on this, clicking on that, and looking for inspiration and things to appreciate.  So I decided to share a site that I found refreshing, especially when the people behind it hardly need to put in the extra effort.

Some of you may have  heard of a little style maven named Sienna Miller, and may even own a piece or two of the clothes designed by her and her sister, Savannah, so it’s fair to say they could just put up an HTML site with one sentence: If you like it, buy it.

I mean, check out this look below…some structure, some softness, some definite flirtation. I see me in this with some lace up gold/tan booties and layers of gold chains….let the flirtation begin!

But instead on sitting on their famous haunches, the Miller sisters have created a personable and engaging site, Twenty8Twelve.com that is some parts blog, some parts look book, some parts magazine:

  • Like the Twenty8Twelve-by-numbers column, like “264,000 – units produced from first season to date”, and “15 – pairs of shoes in our first show”.
  • The “Working Together” page that’s made up of alternating quotes from the sisters, instead of some dry third-person narrative that’s just a little too constructed.
  • And my personal fave, the tons of baby pics, like this little number here…

…that show that these ladies are REALLY partners, and, as Sienna says “When you grow up together and share a life as each other’s half until you leave home, it’s inevitable, or was at least for us, that you share an appreciation of a similar aesthetic. We have always said that we are each other’s other half. We lived together while Sav was freelancing and that was when we realized that working together felt like a natural and logical step to take. Where one stumbles, the other one stands tall, so working together is a really complete experience”.

  • Oh, oh, and my second personal fave, pics of their fans, women of all sizes, ages and tastes, wearing their Twenty8Twelve pieces. With the cascade of thinness still thrust at us from magazine pages, it’s nice to remember who ACTUALLY ends up in the clothes. Like this woman…

    So in addition to making fun, London-chic clothes, the Miller sisters seem like pretty cool chicks.

    Cheerio,
