At a recent Collina Strada trunk show at Goldyn Boutique in Denver, I had the great privilege to meet the designer behind this avante-garde line.  Hillary Taymour exudes urban-chic and is such the quintessential New-Yorker!  She has the perfect haircut- short bangs, tousled wavy hair, and all the right contrasting highlights!  Oh- and she carries her adorable little dog everywhere around the store with her.

Based in Manhattan, she designs a unique blend of edgy, yet feminine clothes and handbags.  Hillary mixes tough leather with delicately sheer fabrics.  High-end construction with a modern yet vintage feel.  The woman who wears Collina Strada is a daring shopper- adventurous, metropolitan, and doesn’t need a massive luxury label behind her to feel cool and good about herself.

I HAD to own one of her insanely cool pair of pants!  Black leather shorts underneath sheer silk panels.




Other ways I found, in my closet, to style these pants…

I wore these Collina Strada pants to one of DFW’s (Denver Fashion Week) fashion shows sponsored by 303 Magazine.
