JUST IN: COLLINA STRADA

collina

Landscapes and travel were the inspiration behind Collina Strada‘s Fall 2013 collection. The mountains of India are the featured print in blue canvas, while classic black leather bags are mixed into the collection, which designer Hillary Taymour hopes will allow for customers to create their own style rather than fall victim to heavy branding. Says the designer, “People can recognize a Collina Strada bag without the brand name being flashed in their face all over the product. It allows for the customer to make it their own versus wearing an over branded leather good.” When it comes to traveling, Hillary’s favorite destination is currently Tulum in Mexico. “I’ve been their twice this year and going back in December. It’s this great mixture of hippy vibes and fashion kids. The idea of not having to wear shoes for a week is liberating and the swinging beds under the moonlight are an added bonus.”
