Calla’s Fall 2012 presentation at Milk Studios this past weekend marked Calla Haynes’ debut into the New York fashion scene. The key inspiration was of the life and surroundings of an international interior decorator. The Calla Fall 2012 collection itself is the wardrobe of the interior decorator that Haynes imagined. Not quite knowing much about an interior decorator’s life, I’ve gathered from Calla’s Fall 2012 collection that interior decorators lead stylish lives that demand a lot of functionality in clothes. Also, cuteness!
The most intriguing thing to note about Calla’s Fall 2012 collection is that you can literally see the inspiration in the prints — wood panelling with a painterly aspect, granite and a mid-century upholstery motif blended in multiple ways. Some of the prints gave crepe the appearance of a grainy texture that’s really appealing to the eye:
Equally appealing are the colors of the Calla Fall collection; peacock blues, rosy beiges, deep purples contrasted with striking black and white motifs.
Calla’s interior decorator is one that dresses sensibly for the Fall with printed wool, faux fur lined motorcycle coats and boyfriend jackets. Day dresses and party dresses are form fitting and will suit just about any body shape. Pants are slim or slouchy allowing for maximum movement throughout a busy interior decorator day.
Aside from the gorgeous prints, I loved that each piece in the collection is really conscious of those who are…body conscious. There was nothing that I couldn’t see myself in!
Here are some photos I managed to take at the presentation:
