“Have a farm-tastic day!” enthuses Collina Stada’s press release, accompanying sunny garments that offer an optimistic alternative to today’s gloomy outlook. Founder Hillary Taymour utilizes her label as a platform to both uplift like-minded creatives and upcycle deadstock textiles, motifs that equally inform the label’s optimistic Spring/Summer 2021 collection.
Sean-Kierre Lyons and Alicia Mersy contributed artwork to the lookbook, while Taymour’s friends, co-conspirators and muses model the seasonal items, yielding imagery that reads more like a costume party than unsmiling fashion presentation. Indeed, the playful tie-dyed cornfields and branded rainbow waterfall backdrops host a bevy of colorful jackets, shirts and trousers, most of which are recycled from past collections to avoid typical fashion waste. Hand-decorated HOKA ONE ONE provide a DIY complement to Collina Stada’s signature warped hoodies, painted jeans and doodled bodysuits, bolstered by accessories that range from dyed tote bags to custom underwear.
