Designer Spotlight: Sea NY


Sea Spring 2015

When I find a collection I like, I ask myself, "Why do I like it?" and I look at a few other seasons to see if it's a fluke or if the designers have something that strikes a chord with me in general. With Sea NY it's the latter. Based in New York City and designed by Sean Monahan and Monica Paolini, they have hit upon the perfect blend of fabric, plus modern, simple shapes. While not necessarily print driven, their prints are beautiful and wearable. I am especially drawn to their denim silhouettes, and embroideries. Launched in 2006 they've had years to perfect their looks, here are 6 of my favorites from their Spring 2015 collection.
