The thick, muggy air on a sunny summer morning welcomes the splashing of chlorine infused turquoise pool water. It welcomes the laughter of children as they race by ringing their aluminum bicycle bells. It welcomes a large vanilla ice cream cone with rainbow sprinkles that melts effortlessly in the July blaze. Summer greets the smell of hotdogs perfectly browned on the grill. It greets the excitement of playgrounds, grass stains and beach trips. It says hello to faded denim that covers reddened skin. But most of all, summer embraces the unknown adventures and marks them as stories forever ingrained in our memories.
For Spring/ Summer 2016, I am addressing every child’s memory through a collection of mix and match separates. Featuring cotton and denim fabrics, all items are washable and wrinkle free for the child on-the-go who enjoys all summer activities. Drawing inspiration from the mega trend Satorial and my grandfather's photo's from his time in the service during World War II, I present my collection entitled "Stories."
