Japanese label, Diet Butcher Slim Skin centered their Fall/Winter 2009 collection around Acker and Green, two bird/human hybrids who have a long and complicated love/hate relationship with each other, and the collection is thus aptly named “Strange Birds”. The first shipment of the brooding collection just dropped at Blackbird and features some very well-tailors slim cut slacks and blazers, graphic tees, basic striped long-sleeve tees and skinny washed jeans. The two-button blazer is formal enough to pair with slacks but also works well with jeans and tees. The collection has a dark undertone over all but is very wearable and suitable for colder seasons to come. Other items such as sneakers, bags and apparel will continue to drop from now through October.
