Suite Life - Mary Katrantzou, Ileana Makri, David Koma & Lynn Ban
This week at Suite 1521 was very hectic, but we had some AMAZING designers showing! One of my all-time favorites, Mary Katrantzou, was here this week, as well as Ileana Makri, a beautiful jewelry designer, David Koma, whose a little too sexy for my taste, but still very pretty, and Lynn Ban, a very gothic/edgy/amazing jewelry designer!
Mary is a Greek designer who loves very feminine, abstract, colorful, but modern designs! I absolutely adore her collections, and getting to see them in person was amazing! Her gorgeous, rich colors and abstract floral patterns made the entire collection look Alice-in-wonderland-esque, but even prettier. I was particularly in love with the burgundy daffodil top, and the dress version too!
Another Greek designer, Ileana's jewelry is simple, but stunning! Think greek mythology meets edgy rock-chic! I especially adore her baguette line rings and eclectic but sophisticated evil-eye pieces! I got to chat with her a little bit while I was unpacking the David Koma collection!
David Koma is definitely one for the punk-rocker who wants lots of cut-outs, sexy designs, and a TON of metal detailing. While I'm not sure I could pull off his ambitious designs on a daily basis, they definitely pack a punch for a special occasion!
Another designer who is more on the edgy-gothic side, but SO gorgeous! Lynn Ban's jewelry is dark, sexy, and stunning! I'm particularly in love with the lace-looking rings from her latest collection! (third finger from the right)
Wow! That was a lot! Check back next week for Giuletta, Anya Hindmarch, Antonio Berardi and Lee Savage!
