DALLAS, Aug 3, 2008 / FW/ — Tuesday, Jul 22, St. John, an American luxury brand known for its innovative knits and opulent ready-to-wear unveiled its Spring 2009 collection at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa, California.
Precluding the international womenswear fashion season, the catwalk show premiered St. John’s collections that included Couture, Collection and Evening.
Fresh and modern with a generous touch of femininity, St. John Spring 2009 collection addresses today’s modern lifestyle with its sophisticated but not to serious silhouettes. Emphasizing the brand’s continuous development of featherweight, innovative knits, novelty stitches were extensively used to create texture and dimension.
Colors are clear and bright – upbeat. Silhouettes range from soft and fluid to shaped and architectural. The collection includes new shapes with a nod to some updated favorites. The addition of woven fabrics gives a true sportswear appeal. Embellishments are subtle and refined. This spring line is definitively ‘St John’.
