Helios + Luna -is a stylish collection of womenswear sold in upscale department stores. For Spring 2013 the fairly new label ---showed a rather large collection of sports-inspired separates, wonderful printed graphic separates in bold colors, and items with construction details---that reminded us of "deconstruction" like outside seams, zig-zag zippers and sheer fabrics- mixed with solid textures.
All designed by Patricia Clyne (also the designer of Doncaster, fyi).
