Whitney Eve designer Whitney Port started her journey for Spring/Summer 2013 at the Tower of London. The crown jewels were the catalyst for deeper exploration into geological elements, forming the basis for her signature custom Whitney Eve prints this season.
Whitney Eve embraces a new perspective on youthful elegance. Soft, sculptural shapes and classic elements are fractured and reformed. Printed denim, primary colors, mix-and-match textures, and unique prints are combined effortlessly in the Whitney Eve signature eclectic feminine aesthetic.
Known for her evolving work with printed fabrics, Whitney focused on precious stones, crystals, mineral and rock formations for Spring/Summer 2013. These elements were magnified, shattered, and blurred to create this season’s unique prints.
Geological prints feature on feminine blouses, wide legged pants, menswear inspired soft tailoring, and casual suiting. Cut outs and layered fabrics add new dimensions to chic eveningwear. New offerings from Whitney Eve this season include printed denim, fringed evening gowns, and fine gauge knitwear. Anchoring the collection are Port’s signature textured seamless layering pieces, available for the first time in jacquard print.
