Subdued Sexiness at OSTWALD HELGASON
Ostwald Helgason’s Spring – Summer 2014 collection was nothing short of vibrant and exuberant. Bold, colorful and irrepressible, the collection dared to mix prints and patterns unapologetically. Notable looks included a floral print navy mini dress, layered with a sheer high-waisted pleated maxi skirt. Other stand out looks include menswear inspired button-down shirts paired with a cropped blazer and pleated shorts. "Our inspiration was celebrating beautiful funny things in life. We took very happy things like balloon animals and flowers and we mixed and mashed them up into this collection basically," said Susanne Ostwald, one half of the design duo. Singer and fashionista Solange Knowles (who happened to be wearing Ostwald and Helgason) was on hand to view the collection and had nothing but positive things to say. "Naturally I’m pretty connected to colors and prints. I’ve been a fan of Ostwald and Helgason’s for a couple years now. I wear them a lot when I perform so I just wanted to come and support, see the collection full on, and start scouting some looks for some of my shows coming up!"
