LOS ANGELES--()--Karen Capili, a leading West Coast designer, presented her line of ready-to-wear for Summer 2013 during Los Angeles Market Week.
“Summer is a time for people to have fun”
In keeping with her ongoing Victorian theme, Capili’s summer collection features Chantilly lace, sheer floral lace and chiffon. Her looks are primarily floral and soft with both bright and dark tones combining to create fitted and gently flowing silhouettes. Cutout backs add a sassy and young contemporary feel. Pricing for the collection ranges from $85-$355.
Capili is known for her use of bright vivid colors from the 1980s, which she cleverly intertwines with Victorian-era designs to create unique pieces that reflect divergent time periods yet create a distinctive look that is bold and dramatic, yet also classical and formal.
“Summer is a time for people to have fun,” said Capili. “My collection for Summer 2013 is designed to be comfortable while still bringing a certain elegance and style that suggests something a bit dressier.”
Karen Capili fashions are available online at www.KarenCapili.com/store. The site offers the designer’s most recent lines of both ready-to-wear and couture collections, with consumers able to view and purchase a wide variety of Karen Capili apparel.
