Katharine Polk’s funky spring collection — shown in a buy-now-wear-now presentation across four floors of a private Upper East Side town house — might not appeal to brides who abide by tradition. But that suits her just fine. From first to last, her collection conveyed a wayward spirit.
Much of Polk’s bohemian lineup explored the possibilities of layering, with dresses, skirts and rompers decked out with tiered ruffles and cut-outs. Many were styled over sheer lace bodysuits, adding texture and dimension throughout the silhouette. Bell-sleeves and bell-bottom jumpsuits lent some looks a Seventies feel, while a few strapless gowns in silk chiffon adopted a Grecian formula.
Polk’s cool-girl model gang wore white fishnet stockings, chunky platform pumps, bejeweled chokers and sporty pigtail braids — adding to the overall vibe of rebel brides.
