Her future looks as bright as the colors she wears. She’s playful, fearless and ready to reinvent past Modern Art movements with a fresh new approach. Futuristic, sleek, streamlined silhouettes and graphic elements of 1960s Mod are combined with the resurging Pop Art prints and patterns of the ’80s–all updated with modern fabrications, textures and unexpected juxtapositions. High-shine materials such as patent, resins and coated enamels pop when shown in eye-catching primary brights and set against the stark contrast of black and white. Bold stripes, abstract color blocks and sharp geometric shapes swirl into 3-D optical illusions. Her rebellious attitude brings a refreshing blast of newness and edge. She is the girl of the future.
