Meiko - Blackeyed Susan's Autumn Winter Range 2016
Posted on April 13 2016
MEIKO the inspiration behind Blackeyed Susan’s AW2016 is a little sweet black and white cat recently adopted from the Lucky Lucy Foundation. This sweet little soul reminded me of the beauty that is right under our noses.
Meiko roughly translates from Japanese as “bud”; a young flower just waiting to blossom into something beautiful. This inspiration also resonates and echoes Blackeyed Susan ever present ethos; buy local, support the local fashion industry, look for the beauty and blossoming potential that is right here on our own soil!
Blackeyed Susan’s AW2016 ready to wear collection is perfectly curated to include transitional styles ideal for layering in our South African Winter. Aesthetically our colour palette is also inspired by Meiko’s fantastically, ever stylish monochrome coat and features our signature feminine styling and playful silhouettes.
THE FABRIC 100% cottons and wool blends make Blackeyed Susan’s AW 2016 collection easy wearing and perfect for layering in South Africa’s winter season. Our designs embody contemporary class, setting ourselves apart from common trends and allowing the customer to invest in quality, timeless pieces that can be worn for seasons to come.
THE QUALITY Blackeyed Susan aims to offer uniquely designed garments that stand apart from the international offering, manufactured to high quality standards designed and crafted on site, in our Cape Town based studio.

" I adore the Spot Shatsu Dress, it's the perfect transitional item for our South African climate. The Spot Shatsu Dress is a contemporary take on the classic shirt dress with a stylish concealed button stand. Featuring Blackeyed Susan's signature box pleat detail at the back. This fantastically stylish piece is perfect for season transition, as it can be worn as is on warmer days or layered up with leggings and a jacket on colder days" - Melissa -Blackeyed Susan's Designer
