Spring! What a glorious time of year. You can already feel it in the air- a warm breeze bringing with it the promise of sunny, happy days. Paula Hian has truly outdone herself with this stunning collection inspired by her passion for art, architecture, design, and color. You will be drawn to the soft sorbet shades of Coral, Amalfi, Lilac, Ruby and mesmerizing geometric shapes including spirals, zig-zags and rectangles.

The majestic Clarita takes you from day to night! Clarita’s unexpected and intricate patterning makes a bold statement at the office or afternoon event under the Nadeen jacket. Remove the jacket, and voilà, it doubles as a strapless evening dress.

While the new spring collection includes fantastical colorful designs, more conservative styles appear in the lineup for your more serious days. Hian also reintroduces some of her celebrated styles such as the Louvre dress, this season in contemporary shades of Crème and Ruby. Also making a comeback, is the glorious Vedette jacket, a standout in these new soft pastels such as seafoam.

On Saturday September 22, 2018, the Paula Hian boutique was aglow with bright pink balloons, banners, and impeccably dressed women socializing and shopping.

Racks filled with meticulously designed European knits and geometric prints, an aura of goodwill and laughter was in the air as our special guests gathered for fashion and fundraising.

Paula Hian is a unique and bold standout in the luxury designer section of the King of Prussia Mall.

Aside from her visionary designs, Paula Hian is a philanthropic soul who generously gives back to the community, which includes being a long time partner with Susan G. Komen – Philadelphia, a non-profit organization devoted to fighting breast cancer.

Komen’s renowned board members were circulating the fundraiser, spreading awareness about the importance of early detection and research funding. Among them were Natasha Brown, reporter for CBS/The CW Philly and a member of the Komen Philadelphia family, and experts Dr. Monique Gary, DO, FACS from Grand View Health and Dr. Jamie Wells, MD, FAAP from the American Council on Science and Health.

The event donated a percentage of sales to Komen Philadelphia and awarded a Paula Hian design to one special guest.

Paula Hian, who believes “giving back is always in style,” will host more charitable events to support the causes important to her bespoke clientele. Meanwhile, Paula continues to travel in search of inspiration for her next collection of innovative designs to be knitted to perfection.

High Season, High Fashion

 

Fall 2018 must-have wardrobe essentials curated by internationally acclaimed luxury knitwear designer, Paula Hian, creating European fashions that last a lifetime.

 

 

1) The Jacket – This season Hian weaves geometric detailing into her feminine cinched peplum blazers and floor-length fitted toppers. These exclusive designs combine regal colors, specially dyed Italian yarns and diamond-on-diamond patterns meticulously crafted. Another bold element is Hian’s use of wide stripes in woven raffia that draws the eye to the waistline for an edgier look to the standard woman’s jacket.

 

 

 

2) The Basics – Bring new life to your everyday skirt or pant with suiting staples in fine Milano knit that flatter and fit to perfection. Subtle shimmer and a simple back silver zipper are modern updates to this season’s Celeste high waist pencil skirt (above) or our elegant, straight leg Lorraine pull on pant (below).

 

 

3) The Dress – Invest in a dress that flatters and transitions seamlessly whether attending a cocktail party or formal affair. Our Blanche black striped raffia dress with long sleeves (below) available in classic black, shamrock green, pinot noir or harvest gold is the perfect design for every special occasion.

 

 

 

4) The Top – Find the perfect top that works with every style from weekend casual to workplace appropriate. Whether simple and fitted like the Astrid cropped ¾ length sleeve turtleneck (above) in black or our more feminine Pierretta metallic pleated point top with high neck (below) in pine green or plum, our Fall collection offers an ideal knit underpinning or statement piece that pairs beautifully with denim jeans to classic suiting.

Artistic Musings for Fall 2018 Collection


For me, Fashion is Art. What inspires me? Architects and artists such as Rem Koolhaas, Jean Dubuffet and Mark Rothko. Plus the combined use of materials, shapes and colors.

IMG_5798 bw.jpg

Rem Koolhaas – Faena Arts Center in Miami Beach


These genius artists are the muse of my Fall 2018 Collection. I created exclusive knit materials in France in various gauges from specially-dyed Italian yarns in jewel tones. I also sourced contrasting textures such as glossy raffia. This treasure trove of materials is the secret to my luxurious knits that serve as the canvas of my creations.

HarvestGoldRaffia.jpg PinotNoirRaffia.jpg

Just a tease of what’s ahead…envision intricately-woven geometric diamonds with a touch of lurex and bold, black and white diagonal stripes. The color palettes of these unexpected patterns feature rich hues of Cabernet, Cobalt Blue, Evergreen and Marigold. The Royal color families create statement pieces that define a woman with European style and artistic sensibility.

RedDiamonds.jpg EmeraldGreenDiamonds.jpg

So much more is in-store and I hope you will join me for the unveiling of my newest collection made in France at the same factories selected by the Houses of Chanel and Hermes.
