Sophie Theallet S/S 13
There’s nothing like when a designer hits their stride. With a Woolmark prize under her belt and a distinctive style all her own, Sophie Theallet is one of New York’s most influential designers. For spring she delivered one of her best collections to date with a confident assortment designed for the woman who embraces her freedoms. Theallet’s elegant showing was a delightful mix of intarsia knits, unique layering (knits worn under dresses, cardigans peeking playfully from beneath sheer skirts) and dragonfly prints. The latter added a touch of whimsy to a collection that offered a thoroughly grown up interpretation of chic. We wouldn’t be at all surprised if the stunning dragonfly embellished finale dress on Romee Strijd became an editorial favorite.
