Have you heard the one about the Fashion Week-crazed girl who died from invitation-opening-induced paper cuts?
Okay, not funny. But we think fashion can always use a little humor, which is why we’re so smitten with Whitney Pozgay’s first collection, Whit.
Sardonic minds like Roald Dahl, Woody Allen, and Vladimir Nabokov inspire Pozgay, whose Lolita-esque take on childhood informs lofty meringue-like skirts, playfully oversize polka dots, and schoolgirl-meets-boardroom jumpers. To top it all off, her look book featured headpieces resembling forks, eggs, and arrows made by artist Karen Azoulay.
But it’s not all quirks and yuks. Pozgay has serious cred: She put in time at Kate Spade and was previously Steven Alan’s lead women’s wear designer. (She’s the reason you coveted so many plaid button-downs recently.)
Don’t take our word for it, start shopping the collection on Swirl right now. Don’t miss out — or the joke’s on you.
