CHIC WATCH San Francisco: The new master of modern sportswear from Marin County is Christopher Collins. His designs are for the modern woman who wants to feel at ease and chic while going about her day.
I’m sure all of you have seen the hard work that Christopher showed the world on the eight season of Project Runway. It’s an incredible amount of work to churn out in a short amount of time. And the work he produced was high quality and very retail saleable. He gained many fans and it has helped him to grow his business. Tim Gunn was quoted saying: ” Christopher Collins is redefining American Sportswear.”
He now has a showroom in NYC and sells to over 100 boutiques nationwide. I’ve known Christopher for a few years now and have I was able to style his Fall 2012 collection with him recently.
So here is first look at the Fall 2012 line and my some of my favorite chic picks:
Christopher Collins Fall 2012 collection is inspired by the Southwest wide open spaces and Native American Art and influenced by 5th Avenue for the style. The entire collection translation: New York Chic effortless and elegant.
One of the top key silhouettes for Fall 2012 is THE CAPE:
Fun, sleek knits which hug your body and you feel like a million bucks! They are yummy!
Blue and black knits seasonless style!! And so easy to wear! Check out the cowl neck and the rouging on the sides. Sexy details that make all the difference for a perfect fit!
A sumptuous silk blouse paired with knit top utter easy elegance.
I’m so excited for Christopher, as his collections grows and his audience – he is bound to be the next big name in contemporary sportswear!
