You're probably wondering who makes those slick yellow trousers in our [Summer] In The City shoot.
One afternoon, while shooting a quick preview of some Trovata duds at Denise Williamson showroom, we bumped into Catherine Holstein trying on some trousers from her Fall 08 collection. As petite and pretty in person as she is in photographs, the young designer exudes the kind of cool that will keep her contemporary label buzz-worthy season after season. She like, Jenni Kayne, seems to fall into the category of young, attractive solo-female designers whose sophisticated clothing is only made hipster by the black framed glasses both have used in their presentations.
For Fall, Holstein rightly used a bight shade of lemon yellow to create high waisted narrow trousers (not skinny though, nor too high), a color block dress, and full pleated skirt. She says of the collection, "You could throw the whole collection in a suitcase and that's all you would need" which, coming from some, wouldn't be true, however, something about her way of editing the color palate (navy and lemon yellow being dominant for fall) and of keeping the silhouettes clean and strong, makes you agree. Hers are sophisticated, easy to wear clothes that are readily available for those day-to-night (or New York to LA) moments.
