DALLAS, Dec 12, 2005/ FW/ — With eclectic references for Spring 2006, Kimberly Mimram designing under the label Pink Tartan proposes sweet and pretty looks that are simply irresistible.
Obi belts and sashes, ruffles and box pleats provide accents to blouses, dresses and gowns. Alternating between structured and fluid silhouettes, Mimram captured the freshness of spring and the warmth it brings.
Trench coats and long-sleeved tees and blouses for those cool spring days; baggy shorts cuffed at the hem, tank tops and spaghetti straps on dresses for the warm summer months.
Colors are bright as the yellow daffodils and stripes or polka dots with the young green leaves of spring are so delectable and cool on the eyes.
Tuxedo jackets and white Navy peacoats are for the more formal looks. Yet, the floral paisley shrunken jacket is the true ‘must have’ if you can only have one of the coats in the collection.
Trousers are low-rise that sometimes come in Capri-length while the choices with the skirts are either those sexy pencil-cut or the more demure pleats.
Beautiful as the daywear is, it is in the evening wear that Mimram excelled starting with the gold cocktail dress with a tube top and pleated skirt rolled at the hem.
Mixing the formal with the informal, the white cap sleeve tee matched with an eyelet floor length skirt accented with a bow in the same fabric, and the white racer back tank paired with a red floor length frock accented with pleats at the back make dressing for the evening easy.
The only drawback to this collection – we have to wait for March until it hits stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom and Stanley Korshak in Dallas.
