Stella Carakasi will debut her Spring 2014 lifestyle collection for women during New York Fashion Market Week in Manhattan at the Atelier Designers tradeshow September 16-18. The juried and curated show exhibits international fashion collections of womenswear, jewelry and accessories and is known for modern, contemporary and casual lifestyle looks.
The Stella Carakasi collection launched at the Stitch tradeshow in Las Vegas last month to great acclaim. “Spring 2014 represents our full transition to the Stella Carakasi label,” says Carakasi, Head of Design and the line’s namesake. “My vision is clear. We are refining our designs, using better fabrics, and fortifying our foundation of neutrals, textures and layers. I am thrilled that our customers appreciate the quality and uniqueness, as well as the comfort and practicality of our line.”
The Stella Carakasi collection is a division of Two Star Dog, Inc. (TSD) and debuted in 2012 to great excitement in the industry. Although the label is only one year old, Carakasi has been at the helm for 20 years. She joined TSD in 1993 and quickly made design history as the first U.S. company to create The Original Hemp Jean and full collections of garment-dyed sportswear made of hemp. With her new collection, the company is now becoming known for its quality, unique fabric combinations and surprise details.
SPRING 2014 is all about the balance that comes from opposing elements, the tension created when opposites attract. Unpredictable and exciting, like the buzz of the city on the first warm spring night…
Compared to collections past, this season is as much about introducing fresh ideas as it is about reasserting house signatures. There’s still the trademark masterful draping and asymmetrical cuts that Stella Carakasi has become known for, but the contrast with straight lines and cleaner silhouettes makes these pieces even more compelling, uncomplicated and effortlessly beautiful.
EARLY SPRING: Just as everyone is ready to shed winter layers and dark colors, Stella Carakasi peels back that famous London fog with a color palette that pushes us into spring: vibrant orchid, vivid saffron and French blue reveal themselves through cool shades of grey. Mesh combined with jersey skews sporty and pushes the modern envelope. Sheers in soft French blue slightly obscure, but always complement the crisp, chic hues that permeate the collection.
SPRING 1: Everything just clicks. The printed Georgette is perfectly in tune with this season’s play on sheer and solid. The palette is cool, modern and wearable. Paper white and half tone neutrals of pearl and mist compliment a rich navy that is the soul of a collection that reads spring, but with more of a New York state of mind.
