Graphic Prints In Black & White
Pink Tartan’s Kimberly Newport-Mimran named Edie Sedgewick as her muse for spring. “I love how she had the eyebrow and she was vulnerable and she loved fashion,” she explained backstage. “I think all those elements made her an It girl in her time.” Newport-Mimran may have been referencing the original It girl, yet it translated into Pink Tartan’s modern lady. The prints were graphic and largely black and white in optic grids and stripes and Andy Warhol’s iconic flowers. The textures too were a mash-up, with flower brocade paired with spheres embossed into bright white fabric. Yet the shapes were pure Pink Tartan, with many a swing coat, calf-length hemline and full skirt, the best of which were done in a washable vegan leather—a fabric first for Newport-Mimran.
