Flashback: Luella Spring 2008


The Luella label debuted its last fashion collection back in 2009. Despite its short life the label had a devoted following. Luella Bartley knew how to create fun, playful clothes that were cute without being saccharine full of details like heart-shaped necklines that launched more knock-offs than can be counted. Perhaps my favorite collection by the brand was Spring 2008--a geek girl mashup that embraced oversized spectacles, cute cards, and Batman. Long before the debate of what makes an authentic greek girl Luella had created the outfits they would want to wear. From the over-the-top florals and glasses that read like a nerdy secret identity to the sweet capes and masks that are pure superheroine. It's been years but this collection still inspires me to dress like a comic book character.
