Silk is the new black at SILK NY
Spring/Summer ’18 ready-to-wear collection on SILKNY.com. The new collection is designed for the modern woman and addresses the need for versatile clothing options, using high quality fabrics and a range of new patterns. SILKNY is also introduced a new silk-tencel fabric blend to select styles in the SS’18 collection. The fabric is crafted using a non-traditional weaving technique that enhances the texture and strength.
SILKNY’s creation was inspired by the luxurious look and feel of silk and silk blends and the brand sources their high-quality fabrics from all over the world, including France, Italy, and China, a top silk manufacturer for centuries. With a vision that continuously merges contemporary style with timeless elegance, the new collection includes silk-tencel off the shoulder blouses and high-low tops, silk-linen trousers and jackets, flowing silk dresses and more.
SILKNY’s head designer, Michele Lee, began her career working for some of the biggest names in fashion including Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and, Armani before transitioning into a career in manufacturing. Now, with over 10 years of manufacturing and high-end design experience, she’s taken the opportunity to design and produce her own brand.
Regarding her inspiration for SS’18, Lee says “I was very inspired by everyday New York City life, especially the patterns that are all over the city. Traffic lanes and crosswalks translate into big and bold stripes, the bursts of culture translate into dots of varying sizes. And the romance of the city inspires a touch of floral, especially in the Spring. My overall vision for the brand is just one of modern femininity. I love high fashion, but fashion to me needs to be versatile. It will always be important to me that our pieces instill a sense of power and confidence in the women who wear them. As a working woman and young mother, it’s also very important to me that our collection be comfortable and high-quality, which is why I continue to personally assess and approve the fit and finish of every piece in the collection before it is sent for manufacturing.”
