Naomi Spindel Spring 2014
Retro beach party by way of Brooklyn

Sunday afternoon saw the debut collection for New York Fashion Week newcomer Naomi Spindel, at the Hotel Particulier in Soho. The playful collection nodded to the California state of mind of the Los Angeles- born, Brooklyn-based designer.  Crop tops, cutouts, caftans, and other beach-ready attire were featured in an array of bright, punchy colors simultaneously exuding retro nolstalgia and modern-day irony. Modest silhouettes and lengths were juxstaposed against plunging necklines and attention-grabbing shades,  while laidback Hawaiian-inspired floral motifs and other prints were shown in luxurious brocades and silks. Models donned coiffed updos, liquid lined cat-eyes and bold lips - and not to be remiss - a metallic seam along the front of the leg, a spirited nod to the backseam pantyhose known for their popularity during the mid-century.
