In February, as I was perusing the program of New York Fashion Week, a (to me) unknown brand screamed for attention: Pink Tartan. This has got to be good, I thought, and promptly googled earlier collections. It was everything I hoped it would be, so today I want to share this fashion house and the magnificent designer behind it, with you guys. I hope you’ll like it as much as I do.
This here is Kimberly Newport-Mimran (1968 – ), the President and Head Designer of Pink Tartan, a brand she launched with her husband in 2002. Newport-Mimran started her career in fashion when she was 14, selling retail, before she went on to study fashion merchandising.
Newport-Mimran wants to design “clothes to live your life in.” Ah, I wish.
As you read up on Kimberly Newport-Mimran, you find a lot of her fashion philosophy in snappy, little sentences such as:
“Simplicity is the secret to elegance.”
I sort of agree. Sometimes. But other times, excessiveness is just so right! What do you think?
I do loooove the hats, though.
and the colors
and the retroness (not a word, you say? Don’t care, I say)
