INO met with Claudia, the designer behind the Claudiae line, to see the new pieces for her collection at the Coterie. Claudia is from Equador and she is currently based in Miami. Claudia’s emphasis has always been on making clothes that are easy to wear, classic and that look great with a variety of body types. Her focus, lately, has been on the prints for fabric, which she does herself. She went for a futuristic, slightly geometric print and used this fabric to make simple shifts and easy blouses. She incorporated motorcycle elements on the backs of some shirts in the form of sewn-on patterns.
On trend were some high-waisted pants. These can be worn with a basic tank. The color story for one section included dreamy shades of dark blue, black and navy. One of Claudia’s favorite items is a pair of black leggings with blue and white shapes that look like planets scattered all over. These are versatile because they can be worn as pants, with some pumps.
Claudiae can be bought in select boutiques across Arizona, California, Missouri and Dallas, as well as online at www.claudiae.com.
