Linen blouses with sweetly covered buttons, cotton Swiss Dot blouses with romantic, Victorian-inspired necklines, and a linen, ankle sweeping sundress with ruffled shoulders . . . the latest capsule collection from Kara Thoms is what summer wardrobe dreams are made of. I've been crushing hard on this California based label and designer Kara Johnson's passion for honoring the past in her sustainable designs and her commitment to keeping her brand sustainable. Everything is produced in small batches by family-run artisan businesses and hand-dyed using natural mineral dyes. Her collections are small and her pieces are limited but that's exactly why Kara Thoms feels so special.
THE POLLY COLLECTION IS A NOD TO THIS BYGONE ERA, WHERE PLAYFUL DETAILS OF RUFFLES AND BUTTONS ARE MARRIED WITH FUNCTION. THIS COLLECTION CELEBRATES THE NOTION THAT A WOMAN CAN BE AT ONCE BOTH DELICATE AND STRONG, PAIRING FEMININE STRUCTURE WITH ELEGANT MINIMALISM.
