SUMMER NOIR

With summer upon us, the longer days and balmy nights have a heightened sense of vibrancy to them.  Saturated and bright, fashions transition to reflect the summer vibe.  In a season where a sea of color makes it easy to “stand-out”, I question, does being vibrant actually blend in?…

I believe summer can have a moody juxtaposition that “ Stands-Out” by toning down.  With this in mind, I have re-interpeted my playful and vibrant SS 2019 collection to evoke the mysterious feel of “film noir”.  Shot in black and white, this new visual gallery contrasts the drastic change with the absence of the hues that typically represent summer.  As it relates to clothing, when I think about the most elegant looks I’ve created, or have been inspired by, I always find myself returning to black.

In this seasons collection I added this element with a black-scale palm tree print shirt to add a sexy vibe to a normally upbeat choice of color.  Something like this can be easily paired with crisp white jeans, it’s just a touch of “noir” that is unexpected.We have a new lightweight long sleeve silk-cashmere polo that comes in “noir-black”, (and vibrant yellow and blue) for the spring season and looks great with a dark pair of polished cotton stretch trousers from our new Mark Pomerantz Fabric Collection.

While not the most common opinion or obvious choice, the choice to don black in the summer is as sleek as it is intriguing…
