I have a secret guys.
I’ve been holding out on you.
In my defense, I had to….until I got the go-ahead to spill the beans. Which I have now, so I shall spill.
Once upon a time there was a girl named Biqui, (nickname) who was very talented in all things creative. She grew up and worked in NY for some well-known fashion designers, (*cough**ANNA SUI **cough*). She moved far away from NY to Texas, and her family grew. She worked, and created, and Anthropologie wisely snatched her up to create some of the most KICK A*# store windows/store vignettes you’ve ever seen. She and her team rock my world on a weekly basis; there’s always something new to look at.
In her ‘spare’ time, Biqui designs the most gorgeous frocks, skirts, capelets, and tops. Her eye is honed. Her taste: impeccable. It’s like she was born with Anthropologie DNA floating through her body, thus her own clothing line looks, walks, and moves like Anthro, and with high-quality fabrics to boot Plus, she’s just an incredibly gracious human being.
One of the coolest aspects of her line is that many of her pieces are REVERSIBLE! You basically get two for the price of one.
Bonjour Biqui finally launched this week, and I can’t wait to reveal a sampling of her work, with one of the best Lookbooks I’ve ever seen. (You listening, Anthro?!) A humongous congratulations goes out to Biqui, for creating a line so fantastic, with her vision so clearly intact the entire way through.
Take a looksie:

This is one of my faves:
One of my favorite looks….I’m a sucker for capelets.
Stop it. This is too awesome, right? Wait, just a few more.

By the way, I wanted to mention how pumped I am to learn that the photography team responsible for Bonjour Biqui’s amazing look book is LOCAL!! Diaz & Diaz Photography got it done, did they not? I’m so impressed with them. I can’t wait to see more of their work in the future, (and hopefully, hopefully….sweet talk them into some family photos for yours truly?!?)
Okay, I’ll leave the rest for you to explore. For now, Bonjour Biqui is in a test phase, waiting to see what kind of demand she gets. These are limited fabrics for now, and depending on the response, Biqui is open to investing in new fabrics and more designs.
Here’s the great part: we have a direct pipeline to Biqui via yours truly. She would love to know which designs are your favorite. What you like, what you don’t like, what you wish was here that you don’t see. SHE WANTS TO KNOW! So please take a moment to check out her site, and let her know what you think. Ideally, and perhaps eventually, she hopes to make the sleeve length a customizable option for the dresses. For instance, like a dress but wish it weren’t a tank style? No problem….you want 3/4 length in a different pattern? She could make it like you want it. How amazing is that?!
Okay, I’ll shut it up now so you can skedaddle off to Bonjour Biqui. I’d suggest burying your wallet in the backyard first
