Lilly Pulitzer Jubilee @ Parsons
This was such an eye-opener for a starry-eyed fashion outsider comme moi! I am ashamed to say that I had to google Lilly Pulitzer to find out more about her. But what I discovered was astonishing. The colors – psychadelic pinks, yellows, greens, blues – were just super. I LOVED every piece that I saw. I felt that I was at an outdoor market in Rajasthan and not in an uberchic space in Manhattan. The colors are one thing, but the prints and embroidery are so adorable.The clothes are light, airy and so summery and perfect for the beach. In her clothes I saw hints of Pucci, Missoni and Alpana Bawa.
This was a super retrospective of her work and so well executed. I particularly liked the wall of framed prints, along with framed quotes from desginers like Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, and Michael Kors about Lilly’s timeless style. I am such a fan now!
