4 of Paula’s Favorite Looks From Spring/Summer 2017

This spring/summer I wanted to put together a collection that had intricate details while retaining simplicity.  The goal was to emphasize the core of what a knit really is by creating pieces to mix and match for any occasion. With summer now here, this is a good time to showcase some essentials for your wardrobe and how they can be paired together.

  1. Aubrey Gown

The abstract structure of this dress turned out to be completely flawless. When I envisioned this piece I was inspired by geometric shapes and endless lines to create a design that is everlasting. With the abstract print and the color, this is a piece that will not go unnoticed while you’re wearing it.

 

PH Blog Post- Cheyenne Dress

Intended to be worn as a classic fit and flare, this dress ultimately became dual function. While shooting this piece at the photoshoot, a spontaneous decision was made to photograph the dress with the collar up. Instantly it became a brand new look and blossoming one dress into the idea of two.

Subtle but designed with refined details, the cap sleeve structure is the perfect way to TOP it off. This Pinafore dress offers a black top and base but the skirt comes in a choice of several vibrant colors which you can see in other pieces of my Spring/Summer collection. Whether you’re on the way to work or ready for a night out on the town, this two toned polka dot “beaute” will become your next favorite.

 

4. Tracy Jacket/Georgine Skirt

Smooth lines transform this combo into the perfected geometric dream. Made with lightweight yarns, the framework makes the garment easy-to-breathe. Created as “sport couture” I wanted to keep these pieces easy to mix and match with other pieces of the collection. The scallop build of the skirt wears as a wrap, giving an asymmetrical look.

I sincerely hope that you will enjoy wearing these four looks and the rest of the collection as much as I enjoyed designing it.

xoxo,

Paula

Last week, Paula Hian met with New York City’s top fashion editors to share her 2015 Fall/Winter Collection and mood board with each one.

Starting her day with just a decaf coffee, Paula first met with Vladimyr Pierre-Louis, Fashion Editor at Women’s Health. ()

Paula and Vlad chatted a little in French when they discovered one of many common bonds- Paula speaks & writes in French daily since she makes all collections in France and Vlad being of French Creole descent!
Vlad loved her body conscious styles such as the matelasse shorts, jumpsuit and bold color combinations found in all the cinderblock styles.

Next, Paula met with Craig Montague, Editorial Assistant at Town & Country where he picked his favorite pieces out of Paula’s 2015 Fall/Winter Collection. (@TandCmag)

Loving the elegant Elaina fit and flair matelesse dress in fuchsia, the understated but sexiness of the georgette Apollina dress and Carina blouse and again the bold cinderblock pieces- all appealing to the Town & Country reader.

Here again the cinder-blocking was a hit as Michelle loved Paula’s graphic designs and sense of color, shape and style. Michelle instagrams the mood board making Paula’s day!

Keeping on schedule, the last meeting of the day was with Jessie Ajluni, Fashion Editor at Hearst International. (@HearstCorp) Jessie loved Paula’s ideas and inspirations for her 2015 Fall/Winter Collection along with all the other editors… the cinder-blocking concept seemed to be the editor-pick of the day!
