Irina Shabayeva, Project Runway’s Season Six winner, injects some adrenaline into Spring/Summer 2011’s line up with the launch of her new collaboration with Macy’s. Shabayeva joined forces with INC International Concepts to create her first capsule collection, available only at Macy’s. For Irina, fashion is not just about clothing – it’s about a lifestyle. Known for her mastery of fit and proportion and flattering garments that accentuate the body, it seemed a natural fit for Irina to work with INC on a new concept in fashion forward sportswear.
Irina Shabayeva’s line is a sportswear collection that evolved out of the notion of movement and dance. Form fitting dresses and separates, notably tops, skirts, jackets and even denim, Shabayeva relied on her ability to create flattering silhouettes with clean lines, modern fabrics and bright colors. To finish the look, Irina for INC includes dance inspired footwear that ranges from Ponte slipper platforms and ribbon tied espadrilles.
Colors and patterns took a cue from Rubik’s Cube, with strong strokes of bubble-gum brights and rich jewel tones creating bold color blocking on shifts, dresses, and tunics. Vibrant jersey tops and skirts are paired with army anoraks; black and white body con dresses are embellished with exposed zippers, while flirty lace confectionary designs are embellished with jeweled beading.
The collection will launch on February 19th in 50 Macy’s stores. Creating versatile pieces that can take a woman from day to night, the collection effortlessly creates a feminine and flirty look for the trendsetting woman.
Woolrich, the quality outdoor clothing company that supposedly first used a zipper in men’s trousers, has brought on British designer Paula Gerbase as creative director, just in time for New York Fashion Week to launch the new Black Label collection of high-end outerwear, dresses, shirts, pants and cashmere separates this season. Gerbase, who began her career working for designers like Alistair Carr and Gareth Pugh, was hired for her “ability to skirt the line between masculinity and femininity, from her years of training in couture tailoring.”
The Black Label is an extensive one, encompassing 20 looks in 40 pieces, including coats, which retail between $1,000-$1,200; dresses between $350-$400; cashmere sweaters for $650 and pants, $250. The line will be available for fall at Barneys, Otte, Anthropologie and Olive & Bette’s.
Woolrich Black Label will show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week the very first time in February 2011. We are super excited for the show and will be releasing images just after New York Fashion Week!
Toni Francesc will present his Fall/Winter 2011 collection during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and will return to Lincoln Center on Saturday, February 12, 2011, in The Studio at 9:00 p.m. After WATER’S MOOD, ARTIFICIAL LIFE and URBAN FOREST, this will be the fourth season Francesc will show his collection during New York Fashion Week. The upcoming collection, GARUDÀ, is Francesc’s interpretation of the Phoenix, an eagle-sized bird with red plumage burns in its own flames only to rise from its ashes every 500 years. The Phoenix has long been presented as a symbol of rebirth, immortality and renewal. The collection provides an insight into each phase ranging from the fire to the ashes.
GARUDÀ is a collection that is focused on fire; its luminous and incandescent colors are the protagonists of the collection: intense golds, oranges and reds are the focus. The energy of the fire brings in ash grays and blacks and are combined with fabrics and silhouettes that represent the combustion and reemergence of the Phoenix. Garments are composed of luscious silks and wools. Generous, straight forms are combined with volumes that nip in at the waist and hug the body in clean lines that trace the female figure.
Francesc is at the forefront of breaking international markets for the world of Spanish designers and we can’t wait for his upcoming collection!
