INSPIRATION

The idea of creating modern buildings in traditional neighborhoods… The new skyline of buildings in the West Village facing the Hudson or Harlem, where a new modern building stands next to a pre-war icon… creates a new mix of architecture. This is a current point of view, giving what is traditional… modern relevance.

COLLECTION NOTES

This is an advanced American life-style collection…Favoring “American Silhouettes” such as the ‘Shift Dress’, the “A-Line” and the nod toward the clean lines of the Trouser and the Topper. The collection’s silhouettes are feminine – but with an added strength accented by the deliberate tailoring and choice of textiles.

PALETTE AND TEXTILES

The center of the collection is navy combined with black. The navy then evolves into mixes of rich berry hues. The black introduces winter white, dove and silver to create contrast. The textiles reflect the essence of the collection. Traditional materials like double-faced wool crepe and silk mikado are mixed with fabrics that are created with modern technology. The fabrics are sourced from mills all over the world.

THE MUSE

She is worldly; an urban nomad who has an agenda from entrepreneurial and corporate to the arts and philanthropy.
