I love the new pasta-inspired collection for spring from Japanese label Eatable of Many Orders. For Portland friends, I recently saw this collection at Odessa downtown and it’s BEAUTIFUL. I honestly don’t think the photos for the lookbook do the collection much justice — the pieces in person hang beautifully and the details are wonderful. I haven’t seen the Pasta Collection available online yet, but I suggest contacting Odessa if you’re interested in specific pieces. You can also find the amazing Eatable of Many Orders bags at Beklina.
