Christine Alcalay : Fearless Goddess of love
Christine Alcalay, Parsons alum, owner of Brooklyn multi-brand boutique Kiwi, and designer of many things has released images of her spring/summer 2012 collection. She debuted her ready-to-wear collection a few weeks ago at the Soho House in New York City. The collection is filled with print-mixing that evokes a 60s zeitgeist, and maxi skirts, rompers, and other silhouettes that push you into the 70s. I wouldn’t call it a “mod podge” of things, but certainly an eclectic mixture.
While being influenced by Egyptian, Greek, Irish, Samarian, and Chinese culture, Alcalay held no boundaries on what her collection could evolve into. Here, unexpected asymmetry and print-pairing layered with very rich and vibrant solids is a unique point-of-view for this spring. Clothing should evoke a fearless attitude and confidence for the wearer and Alcalay is creating confident, clean, and sophisticated look for women.
