Fashion label Carolina Sarria draws inspiration inspiration from the grit of New York's concrete streets, passion, chaos and the art of everyday life.
Founder Carolina Sarria brings her unabashed creativity to each collection and strives to evoke emotional reactions to the clothing from her customers. The goal is one where the wearer becomes consumed with dreams and creativity.
Soon after opening, Sarria was joined by partner Bianca Allen whose experimental ideas compliment and carry over to the more classically constructed wares within the label and more recently Samantha Deller was brought in to serve as CEO.
The trio opened their flagship store in 2015 to become more intimately engaged with their customer and allow them to work one on one with private clients and create custom pieces in their lower east side atelier.
149 Ludlow Street is a hub of creation, shopping, special events, and at times late night antics reflecting the wild aesthetic that forms the DNA of the brand. The brand also focuses on the merging of fine arts within their clothing and prints creating special items that are entirely unique and authentic to the wearer.
Their Spring/Summer 2018 collection continues to fuse their unconventional approach to modern luxury. Inspired by Art Deco Shape References mixed with 70s Glam Rock and 90s Grunge in a Picasso influenced palette of bold primary colors and graphic Black/White contrasts.
Plaids and sequins are pieced by spiral seams to create new takes on the slip dress, pinstripes meet rubber in suiting and cutting room essentials such as tape measures become dress embellishments.
