I always tend to like the Resort wear collections, probably because they seem the most wearable for a normal everyday person. I particularly like the line by Zero + Maria Cornejo. Maria Cornejo is a Chilean born designer who opened her first store, Zero in the Nolita neighborhood of New York in 1998. I really like her design philosophy…
“The name was an expression of a pure vision: a number that neither adds nor subtracts; it is, rather, a point of departure. Timelessness, ease, and a modern take on luxury are the essence of Zero + Maria Cornejo and the women who love the clothes. The garments are unexpectedly simple yet based on sophisticated cuts and angles using volume and circular shapes as a starting point; garments are often draped and cut from one piece of fabric, use as few seams as possible to fit and flatter as many women as possible and utilize luxurious new fabrics and original prints.”
At the heart of each garment is a commitment to make desirable fashion for real women that lasts beyond a single season and become cherished items in a woman’s wardrobe. This personal approach has gained Zero + Maria Cornejo a loyal following and high praise from fashion insiders and clients like Tilda Swinton, Cindy Sherman and First Lady Michelle Obama.”
You can find the Zero and Maria Cornejo collection online in their shop or…Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Ikram Chicago, Hanwha Galleria Seoul, Harvey Nichols Hong Kong and Net-a-Porter.com and over 80 other stores around the globe.
