i’m telling you, i’m really excited about so many new (and new to me) designers that i’ve been learning about lately. such is the case with designer isabel wilson, who just launched her inaugural spring 2014 collection. i was drawn in by the beautiful water prints on this amazing pair of now sold out shorts. she’s designed textiles for clients like anthro, calvin klein, marc jacobs and the like for a number of years, so it’s no surprise that the prints in her own collection are totally on point. of the collection, she says:
i was inspired by the trippy imagery one can find when looking at water, and the reflections that occur on its surface. i have been designing textiles for years for other designers but always wanted to start something of my own. i decided that i wanted to create some comfortable clothing with a focus on unique textile design for myself and my friends to wear around town!
and i’m certainly glad that she did. i’m still wishing i could get my hands on those shorts, but fortunately for me, she has an entire collection full of equally awesome pieces. and of course, she’s on my list of new designers to watch in the coming seasons.
