Over the past few years, it's been a treat for me to watch local designer Jenny Carle go from a fresh design school grad to a seasoned designer. She started off with a clear aesthetic - girly, vintage-inspired, sweet - but was a bit rough around the edges in execution. Today, with impeccable, I-can't-believe-it's-handmade construction and substantial, expensive-feeling fabrics, Carle has really come into her own. We used one of her new fall pieces in a recent spread for l'etoile (images coming soon), but for now feast your eyes on these lovely images previewing her fall 2010 collection, and photographed by Stephanie Hynes.
On her fall collection, Carle says, "For fall I continue to explore feminine and playful silhouettes while featuring fabrics in wool, pointelle knits and fun prints. This collection is based on an imagined photo diary, and was inspired by travelogues, vacation photos and personal family photos. My collection is for the woman who loves to combine early 1960s silhouettes with a modern twist."
You'll be able to see Carle's full collection at Envision this coming Friday at Graves 601 Hotel, with photos on her website immediately following at jennycarle.com and for purchase at Cliche.
