Don’t Just Buy Clothes, Build a Wardrobe with Antthony Design Originals

THE STORY: The Designer’s Voice
Rich, captivating and sporty are the three words that describe the Antthony Originals fall 2010 sportswear collection. My vision was to mix exotic textiles with brilliant, bold colors to create artistic silhouettes to match the season.
Most designers use an icon or a destination for their inspiration, but to me it is all about pulling the shapes out of my head and putting them into the textiles. For this collection, I used exclusive textile patterns which were custom designed for each silhouette and bridge traditional patterns with abstract shapes. The use of color and placement of the art was so important to really support the clean silhouettes created for this season.
A COLLECTION BUILT ON A PHILOSOPHY: Don’t just buy clothes, build a wardrobe!
Every style in the collection is designed with versatility and comfort in mind. Each of these pieces can literally be worn from day to evening wear, with no fuss. They all have an easy to wear quality to them, making them ideal for any busy woman. After many hours of research and design time in my Los Angeles studio; here are a few of my favorite pieces from the fall 2010 sportswear collection.


Antthony Sporty Chic Twofer Cardigan and Pant Set
When you have only five minutes to decide what to wear, reach for this sporty, chic pant set. The knit cardigan fabric has the hand of the finest cashmere, accompanied with a soft knit shell underpinning framed. French poet’s grosgrain ribbon and buttons dyed to match complete the outfit. The pocket placement is perfect adding an unexpected clean design to the linear shape of the cardigan. The new shape of the trouser is fantastic and clean, yet still offers a lot of ease in the thigh area to fit appropriate to all body types.
Available in: Black, Cognac, Drama Purple, Lapis Blue and Olive
Sizes: Petites, Missy




Antthony Opulent Textures Dress
To date, this is the most elaborate dress released from the Antthony studio. The empire bodice is a work of art as it softly pours into an A-line shape skirt which is the most flattering shape for all women. The intricate design has layers of sheer knit with a one of a kind textile design that captures the feeling of the season. Spice and opulent jewel tones celebrate together to create a dreamy, sophisticated, angelic dress. Worn with high shaft boots or comfortable wedges, this dress is a season winner.
Available in: Brown Multi and Black Multi


Antthony Absolutely Charming Cardigan and Tank Set
Treat yourself to this self indulgent cardigan set and feel feminine and powerful. With three-quarter length sleeves and layers of hand set ruffles framing the neckline, I consider this the new power suit. The slightly elongated shape softly nips the waistline with a magnificent hidden hook and eye closure to keep a neat appearance. The new style tank is a V-neck with a smooth finish. This is by far the most couture inspired design in the collection.
