Sometimes "self-taught fashion designer" translates as "doesn't know how to sew hems or cut on the bias." But other times, it means someone who takes a more sculptural approach to apparel and isn't as constrained by traditional sartorial conventions. And we are pleased to say that Brooklyn-based designer H. Fredriksson belongs in the latter category. We love love love the fall 2007 collection - we think Frederiksson has an almost genius for color that reminds us of the best Chloe collections. The proportions are pretty perfect too - in that irresistable "impossibly-cool-girl-not-trying-too-hard" way. And as far as we're concerned, that's pretty much the ne plus ultra of style. The website is a little wonky, but you can find the H. Fredriksson awesomeness at Greenpoint boutique Alter, one of our Brooklyn favorites. --ALISON COOL
