COLLINA STRADA SPRING/SUMMER 2015 COEUR NEW YORK
Launched in Los Angeles in the Fall of 2008 by fashion designer Hillary Taymour, Collina Strada is a creation for the fashionista. Knowing that if something made her happy it would, in turn, make other girls happy, Hillary began Collina Strada as a small collection for her fashion forward friends. With an act of bold chance and an embrace of passion, Hillary has focused on a movement of things that speaks to her: distinctive textures, sharp details, and original styles that have started to make “heads roll”. Uniqueness is hard to find and Collina Strada fills that void by providing fun loving, curious and bold women with bags that break free from the rest. Created for those drawn by inspirational pieces, Collina Strada is a true combination of vintage and modern style, created to seamlessly translate from season to season. Collina Strada keeps sustainability in mind by hand-making each piece in New York with eco-conscious materials.
At Collina Strada we believe that inspiration is best found off the beaten path. Our original fabrics are influenced by vintage prints with a twist of modern yet ethnic patterns, providing unique and modern accessories for the fashion forward woman. Distinguished by high-end construction and tailored shapes, Collina Strada combines brilliant colors and matchless details in order to create contrast and versatility in each bag.
