The collection description for Whitney Pozgay’s Spring Summer 2014 collection states:
In WHIT’s collaborative tradition, many of the prints and motifs were pulled from photographer Greg Vore’s imagery, translated by artist friends Jemme Aldridge and Ali Landorf, and in the case of the rooster print, painted by Whitney’s husband and creative partner. The resulting collection features hanging florals, black and white checks taken from Balinese ceremonial cloth, batiks and a colorful bird print on washed silk.
What I found when viewing the collection was a marked departure from what’s being shown during New York fashion week. Pozgay shows that she’s not afraid of mixing black and white in a variety checkered prints Her liberal use of silk gives a holiday/resort feel that’s light, airy but playfully sophisticated. This is one of the very few times during fashion week where I can honestly say that the models looked entirely comfortable and genuinely happy when wearing the pieces. That’s saying something simply because when you think of fashion shows the thought process is uncomfortable heels and awkward models attempting to look graceful wearing long gowns. The Whit collection contained none of that. It may be a testament to the “Balinese ceremonial” styled fabric, but this to me says at least one of Whit’s pieces is worthy of your own collection.
