The Honor Spring 2014 collection was full of girlish whimsy when it debuted at New York's Eyebeam Studios today.  Seated on one of the white picnic benches outlining the runway, I watched as models emerged like nymphs from a chic industrial forest adorned with white lights.  The scene was a retro-forward mix of mid-century influences .  Flower prints and delicate appliqués were balanced with sharp tailoring and pointed button necklines.  Peek-a-boo lace and laser cut details layered with silk and tulle were mirrored by tiny star-like flowers sprinkled over side-swept mod ponytails.  Separates that scream "statement piece" like high-waisted shorts shorts and organza cropped tops were topped with cat-eye sunglasses and pointed toe shoes dipped in glitter.

Designer Giovanna Randall's latest creations carry serious potential to attract today's it-girls.  As someone who especially loves the glamour and femininity of 60's fashion I've experienced the challenge of incorporating influences of the era without it looking like a costume, so I was especially thrilled to see Randall's successful throwback to the era.  Honor's retro-infused modern edge and sensuality make the collection both accessible for everyday wear and on par with trends for 2014. From full-length paper nylon gowns and easy A-line dresses to tailored skinny pants and tweed jackets, these fresh and youthful looks are sure to attract stylish fashionistas both on and off the red carpet.
