lookbook: shakuhachi

ahh, the good life.

Countless labels aim to portray a dreamy, beach bum lifestyle, but we think Shakuhachi takes the cake.

The Australian label's been on our radar for several seasons now, and judging by their Summer 2011 collection, we doubt we'll stop following them any time soon.

Inspired by the work of photographer Slim Aarons, famous for snapping stars like Jackie O. and Gary Cooper in uber-luxurious locations, the collection embodies the modern bohemian. It's elegant, it's clean, and, somehow, it still looks completely original and fresh. 

Our only fear: How long will it take to ship the entire collection from Down Under to Manhattan?
