In a sea of black and white minimalism, Calla stands out this season with a colorful, cheerful collection. “Cute” is the first word that comes to mind, but there is a fashionable edge to the “cuteness” of it. The girl that wears these clothes may seem sweet, but she is also savvy, and knows how to make her way in the world—a collection truly for the twenty-somethings coming up in this decade.
90’s references are still apparent in Calla’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, but unlike other brands that went for a more authentic 90’s vibe, Calla has given these trends a fresh and modern turn. Crop tops and bra tops, unbuttoned maxi skirts, and thick sweater dresses in bright colors and prints evoke a flash of the super-stylish late 90’s teen, without making us feel like we’re re-living the past.
