Designer Wes Gordon’s southern roots and couture aesthetic may not be the ideal combination for dressing women in Colorado. But, his charming attention to detail, elegant craftsmanship and injection of luxurious modernity are irresistible – even for Denver’s laid back ladies.
The up-and-coming New York designer is coming to Denver and holding a private viewing of his Fall/Winter 2011 collection on Wednesday, May 4th.
In preparation of his showcase, Mr. Gordon was kind enough to answer some of 303’s questions:
For our most recent collection (Fall 2011), I focused on a fresh, modern take on the idea of luxury. We used the most beautiful cashmeres, leathers, velvets, and embroideries to create timelessly cool pieces that, hopefully, a woman will fall in love with. Who was the collection’s muse? A rock n’ roll Katherine Hepburn.
Absolutely. I think Georgia is one of the most beautiful places in the country. The homes, gardens, and people all combine to create a beautiful romance that cannot be found anywhere else.
At the end of the day, great style is about not looking affected or like you’ve tried too hard. It should be effortless. Our pieces, while painstakingly made from precious materials, are clean and uncluttered, allowing the woman within them to really shine.
First, a little vacation. Then, spring 2012!
