Karolyn Pho debuted her Spring 2015 collection down at Pier 59 in Chelsea Piers. Pho drew a bit of inspiration from her own life. Her girl this spring is a vagabond, "meanders through castles in the air, traipses between realities and crosses unknown borders. She is a nomad, a traveler, lost within her own self-perception" (press release). But unlike her character, Pho found herself couch surfing from friends apartments to her own families home. Her collection stayed true to who she is as a designer, masculine pieces with a touch of softness. Pho drew inspiration from one of my favorites places, Miami. Her color palette was inspired by the Med-Deco architecture of Miami.
Karolyn Pho's girl reminds me of the cool chick walking around Brooklyn's street. She looks effortless yet still put together. Her style would be the term "normcore." I love that her collection yet again is so relatable and wearable. There are pieces within this collection for every woman, for the funky gal who can rock a pale blue jumpsuit to the more sophisticated style who would rather wear a duster vest. I like that you can see that Pho has fun with her collections like adding oversized sequins to a top or having a simple leopard print tank but pairing it under a sheer top. My favorite pieces are are the duster vest as well as the pleated pants.
What did you think of this collection?
