Inspired by pool plunge paintings by American artist Eric Zener, designer Sylvie Millstein included asymmetrical silhouettes, bright colors and breezy fabrics for Hellessy’s first runway show at New York fashion week. After a long dark and dreary winter, every woman would love to freshen up her wardrobe that has “relaxed polish”.
Helping women refresh their wardrobe was what gave designer Sylvie Millstein inspiration for the styles and colors she used for the summer collection for Hellessy. Palm green, aquamarine, gold and polkadots are just some of the new colors Millstein tried using to give this line of clothing ease and a sense of timeless glamour and relaxed elegance. She used a lot of silky fabrics to create a fluid silhouette and a good symmetry.
Millstein told how she channeled the style that Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy would have worn. She also wanted her clothing to go from daytime to evening, or vice versa, allowing the outfits to be very versatile. Any of the off the shoulder tops are meant to be worn with either denim or mixed and matched with other types of bottoms. Millstein wants to simplify a woman’s life by making her wardrobe less complicated and more beautiful.
Offering comfortable pieces with statement tops and wide-legged trousers that have excellent shape and float at her first ever runway show, this designer is bound to be a success.
