Images from Cody Sai‘s spring 2011 collection. Read the review of his most recent show here.
FIT graduate Cody Sai Adler-McAllister currently works for Jed Root Inc, a talent management agency for top creatives in the fashion industry. His own clothing designs, launched in 2010, are clean, linear, simple and wearable with soft silky fabrics mixed with neutral colors and bright jeweled tones that dominate his spring 2011 line.
Breaking out of the winter blues is hard to do. Luckily, Lilith’s spring preview lends a helping hand by coaxing the monotony out of the chillier seasons with not-too-bright neutral tans, browns, cool strawberry sorbets, and icy blue/greys and pinks. Assorted prints in vintage florals, polka dots, and plaids give shoppers enough variety to find a print or pattern that they’ll gladly shed their layers for.
Fun Ikat inspired graphics on purses and coats lend a tropical vibe to welcome the summer months while the many floral prints range from the big and exotic to the girlishly ditsy. Typical Spring standards – resort striped tees, island beads, lightweight denim and khaki, are thrown in to the pot for easy mix and match while the more adventurous can wear dresses of layered and tiered tulle or feathered hair accessories.
Cleverly tailored blazers in slim fits to roomier and exaggerated silhouettes can be layered over the soft drapey pieces that display the unmistakable Lilith signature. Easy wrap and tie sweaters and blouses (in both woman and girl sizes!) pair sweetly with calf length dresses and skirts.
The ease of wear and slow re-introduction to color works well to soften the integration of Lilith’s Spring pieces to the already existing wardrobe. After all, to us, Spring cleaning means throwing out the old, tired things from last season to make room for the refreshing new must-haves of this season.
