Spring Inspirations










This Spring I am inspired by Seberg, sailors and sweet prints. For those who are familiar with Seberg's work during the 1960s this should be an obvious source for fashion innovation. Undertaking challenging roles where she elided the saccharine innocence of the ingenue, she portrayed women whose strength belied their deep sense of vulnerability. There really is something to be said for a woman who can pull off a pixie: youth does not imply naivete or being defenseless. Her pixie cut was the inspiration for mine. By "sailors" I mean nautical prints and also, their corollary, peter pan collared shirts. And of course, cute prints! Seagulls, ice cream cones, owls and sailboats.
