COREY BY COREY LYNN CALTER Fall 2013 Smoke and Flowers Collection

Jane Hotel, NYC

 The historic (built-1908) Jane Hotel-that in its lifetime-has served as a seaman's home, a 'Y' and the base for the original Hedwig and the Angry Itch-and oh yeah,  an actual hotel...was the off beat/cool locale for LA based designer Cory Lynn Calter---Fall 2013 collection for her clothing line-Corey.

 Some bubbly and 60's pop tunes served to set the mood---while the models walked out-onto a raised platform-five at a what we would call downtown girl chic-sophisticated apparel that we felt ref-ed the 60's/ 70's---but had there own modern charm-very much of today. Separates for smart girls---without an ounce of librarian schoolmarm --a good thing as other designers that aim for the same group of gal consumers---lack the feminine frills and fun edge- that give this designer's output a flirty feel...

Fun-parrot print blouson dress on a tencel silk 

Pretty frocks, skirts, knits, cigarette pats, blazers--in a variety of prints and a few solids---all well done...with layered looks, a rather chic wool cape,  and two faux fur coats warding off future cold weather...while sleeveless frocks and tunics -we felt-all easy year round wear.
