Inglot Studios/NYC

London Grass

clean lines with feminine details…love the flat shoes too----this collection modern and upscale with prices typically ranging from $500-$2000 (we asked-but somehow that might have gotten lost in translation…approachable Designer prices)

Gee-some persons must be in a feisty mood on the occasion of ALINA GERMAN's----not forthcoming (at least, on time) USA visa to attend her NYFW S/S 2015 presentation ---(curious as we had gone to the US (Swelter) Open and saw powerhouse Russian tennis players there-the day prior). Hmmm.
Desire top+skirt

WHAT SHE MISSED- her great fitting-wonderfully made, textured silhouettes-on trend apparel-with elegant contemporary flair-from the sporty pieces with the ease of sweatshirts with glam-- to dressier dress options with sheer panels done well ---city ready vs. that belongs on a beach…there was not a miss here for this accomplished Central Saint Martins' graduate- Russian designer ---who is sold in Intermix stores in Russia- across the Pond from where she was stuck.

top is like a "warrior robe" sweatshirt-comfy-but moto-over "Cowberry" leather skirt. 
Neon Rings Skirtl-Cranberry Skirt, Monk Robe Sweatshirt

left-flared leather Black Whale jacket, balanced over slim pants right-sheerness of the top-and color block panels with ribbon like accents…Neon Darts Dress

one of our favs-sheer hem on pretty outfit

casual idea-hoodie- translated well Black Algae Skirt-racer stripes

Black Ray Knapsack, and zippers as accents as well as functional-tailoring is spotless

ALINA GERMAN's team-spoke of the collection for confident -sophisticated women. Notice how the collection flatters different body types.

Two "With Love by' scarves -Alina German (fyi, a hard "G") produced in limited numbers (we hope, sustainably- using Bluesign® certified materials) to continue awareness and create the purification of drinking water in Third World countries.
