two weeks later and I'm still laughing at the SNL sketch, "Bein' Quirky with Zooey Deschanel." if you haven't seen it again, put it on your to-do list now. I bring it up because in the sketch, Bjork (brilliantly played by Kristin Wiig) knits a sweater for an octopus for no apparent reason other than in part to her quirky self. this scene immediately popped in my mind after viewing photos from Fam Irvoll's winter collection at London Fashion Week.

I hadn't heard of this designer until today, but it turns out Fam is a Norwegian designer resides in London. inspired by "Alice in Wonderland, cartoons, toys, food, cakes and candy," all elements are apparent in her bright, quirky collection.
