Introducing... El Gato Gomez for Heart of Haute!

As a fan and collector of El Gato Gomez's  iconic mid-century inspired art work, I couldn't help but reach out and ask her to collaborate with me for Heart of Haute. What first was imagined as a line of t-shirts, soon became an entire collection of full circle skirted dresses with a Black Cat & Asterisk motif, paired perfectly with tonal cropped cardigans.

This is the first time we've collaborated with an artist and we're excited to release this first fun collection featuring all new dress designs. All dresses and skirts are full circle to accommodate the engineered print to suit the swoop of the skirt. Our new cropped cardigan is now available to order in 3 color ways, and will be coming soon in 2 more as the seasons change.

The NEW Dresses are officially availble for PRE-ORDER.  Shipments will begin on the dresses on September 15th. Cardigans are in stock and ready to ship today (if you just can't wait). We have a limited number available on each color. Be the first to rock this new collection and get your orders in early!

El Gato Gomez has gallery representation at the WonderGround Gallery  at the Disneyland theme park in California, Creature Features in Burbank, California, The Harold Gollen Gallery in Miami, Florida, and the One-Shot Gallery in New York City.  Her art work has also been featured at the amazing modernist cultural events, Tiki Oasis  and Modernism Week in Palm Springs.

Disney enthusiasts will be glad to find her Disneyana inspired art pieces like these...

 

I've personally been collecting El Gato's  black cat paintings. Part of the reason I fell in love with this artist is because she took elements of everything I loved and put them together. I mean....who doesn't dig a hip little kitty chillin' in an atomic-age living room?

and here's just a handful of some of El Gato's other works....

 

These few paintings are such a small sampling of her entire body of work. She's always coming out with new paintings and sells original pieces directly to her fans on eBay.  You will rarely ever see prints of her paintings. If you're totally digging El Gato Gomez, head on her over to website to follow her social accounts and eBay sales.

What Have We PinUp To? Making new stuff!

What Have We PinUp To?Hey there Haute Honeys! Hope you are all enjoying the first month of the year!  We've been busy bees here making tons of new products, and revamping the favorites with fresh & fun fabrics! Let's talk all about them...

It's Raining Cats   It's finally here! The long awaited 'It's Raining Cats' print has made it onto the Matey Dress, Ella Top, and Moxie Skirt by Mandie Bee.  I just can't resist these adorable topsy turvy felines. Mandie Bee's collection is form fitting for a gorgeous silhouette, and remember the Moxie Skirt & Matey Dress are slightly shorter than the rest of the Heart of Haute products!  A perfect fit for you flirty rockabilly babes to accessorize with your favorite ballet flats if you're running around all day, or a great pair of pumps for a night out! If you're not a cat lady, don't fret - we are on the lookout for a just as cute puppy print for all the dog mamas out there! Royal Blossom - Amanda Dress               The Amanda Dress is one of those timeless dresses that make a unique addition to any retro-loving gal's wardrobe.  It's a vintage inspired dress that fits like a dream, and this particular print is just gorgeous.  A striking tableau of cerulean, dark blue and bright white flowers with spectacular detailing.  This sophisticated floral print is eye-catching and flattering on all skin tones. Florance - Beverly Dress               Florance is a one of a kind print, it reminds me of picnics in the meadow, a fun, flirty date maybe? Especially when on the Beverly Dress, oh Bev is such a flirt! The fabulous Florance print is an array of teeny tiny blue and red flowers. Also available in the popular Sweetie Dress and the Amanda Dress.  I think they are best accessorized with the Pinup Couture Wicker Purse in black. I can't resist that adorable dainty fruit charm! Winter Blossom - Sweetie Dress             Winter Blossom is sure to make any lady the belle of the ball!  Stunning shimmery ice blue with golden florets that glisten as your skirt twirls.  Sound too good to be true?  It only seems like a dream, but it's the truth!  It reminds me a little of an ice fairy, but really it's a piece that can work in any season.  The fabric has a bit of a pearly sheen to it also, so if you're keen on standing out in a crowd, this dress is sure to make you shine your brightest. Also available in the Amanda Dress for those gals who don't like halters.         Just as a reminder dear Haute Honeys - join us on Facebook through the end of January as we are doing another Test Kitchen.  That's where we show you all the new prints and styles we've been working on and get your opinions on which we should keep!  As always we really appreciate your feedback! Sneaky PeekyHere's just a little sneaky peeky of what could be coming your way! It's up to you!  <3 Ali for HoH <3
