Designer Carrie Parry’s Interchangeable Designs at Designers & Agents

Model: Michelle, APM Model Management

The LA June Market is on the horizon and one label to watch at Designers & Agents is CARRIE PARRY, the eponymous collection of sophisticated staples-with-a-twist.

The LA born-and-bred Central St. Martin’s grad and former circus costumer creates chic workwear with a twist: think peeks of pop-art prints and sophisticated colorblocking.

Garments do double-duty for those eves you’re headed from desk to drinks.

Boasting shirtdresses that can be worn 4 chic ways, interchangeable elements (collars/cuff/bows) and pieces made for refined layering, the label rethinks transitional dressing, whether day-to-night or season-to-season.

A playful update on timeless style, CARRIE PARRY Fall/Winter 2011 Mrs. Montague contrasts sophisticated silhouettes with pop art prints, vividly textured fabrics and whimsical touches. Inspired by 1930s cult classic The Women and Japanese polka-dot artist Yayoi Kusama and with an emphasis on versatility, the eponymous label’s debut collection introduces the concept of interchangeable and detachable pieces, paying homage in name to the originator of the detachable collar, housewife Mrs. Montague. Designing with careful consideration of social and environmental impact, Mrs. Montague is produced ethically and locally in the USA, sourcing environmentally conscious materials and handspun textiles supporting artisanal communities worldwide.
