last week i had the opportunity to visit the Catherine Malandrino Showroom to view the Spring 2013 Collection up close and personal. It was great to see the pieces again and get to actually feel the fabrics and see the details up close. You can check out my coverage of the
Catherine Malandrino Spring 2013 Presentation during New York Fashion Week HERE. What I love about visiting showrooms is also seeing the decor and the designers work environment. Out of the many showrooms I’ve visited this was one of my favorites.
Once you step off the elevators you are greeted with a bright yellow glass wall and to the left a film projected on to the wall. It definitely set the tone before entering the lavish showroom full of intimate portraits on the walls and racks upon racks of equisitely tailored works of art. It didn’t hurt to have the large windows exposing the New York City building skyline as a perfect back drop.
The Spring/Summer 2013 Collection was inspired with a them of French romance and American sportswear. The romantic them is obvious in the materials used in the collection such as delicate mesh as well as the victorian style blouses.
Catherine Malandrino is one designer who has got edgy prettiness down to a science. Case in point this gorgeous studded leather jacket with the thinest palest leather ever. I’ve been told its the favorite of the collection and its mine too!
