“This is elevated daywear that fits your lifestyle,” said Nicole Colovos as she and her husband, Michael, showed their spring collection — designed for women like Nicole who are juggling it all, who are fashion forward and yet desire ease and comfort. It was a lineup full of wardrobe-building pieces that played on masculine vs. feminine to edgy effect. Key looks included a welded-together Japanese denim coat, high-waisted trousers paired with crop tops, and plenty of asymmetrical details, from the hems of dresses to the neckline of tops.
The only prints in the lineup were a striped shirting shirtdress and a beautiful silk georgette blouse in an abstract pattern created from a photo of a subway corridor taken by Michael, worn over wide-leg trousers. Another fun feature this season was the way the couple played with drawstring details — allowing customers to change proportions and shapes — which they worked into everything from a color-block dress to an unstructured jacket. Colovos offered a nod to luxe minimalism by incorporating beautiful Italian fabrics and Japanese denim into a collection made in New York.
