As a respectable New Yorker, your usual January-to-March wardrobe has more shades of black than an undertakers’ convention.
Find a fresher perspective with North Carolina-born, NYC-based designer Hannah Goff.
For her debut collection, the SCAD grad created kaleidoscopic textiles that resemble a costume jewelry box on acid. We thought she might be nuts, but a closer look reveals the method to her madness: symmetry and impeccable tailoring.
Start basic with three varieties of tuxedo leggings (the outer stripe is patterned) and jewel-tone baseball tees with mesh backs. Busy pencil skirts liven your work wear, while color-burst cotton trousers make whichever room you walk into a party.
On the far side, emerald minidresses with translucent cape sleeves, floweresque sheaths in bubbles of sheer black silk, and geode maxidresses with pleated suspender-like ruffles are firmly wear-if-you-dare territory.
All pieces are produced in NYC and take around three weeks to complete.
February’s looking bright.
