Tasha Polizzi Fall 2012 Collections
“America The Beautiful”
Great Barrington, MA – Themes of American life and shades of nature are ever present in Tasha Polizzi’s 2012 Fall Collections. Tasha creates a tribute to American Folk Art in this season’s designs.
Designer Tasha Polizzi guides us into Fall 2012 with the beautiful “South West Collection”. Inspired by the rich hues of the South West, this early group includes cotton serape tunics and a vintage feather motif printed tunic, also available in a tiered skirt. For the traditionalist, there are two stunning “Warrior Blanket” shirts, each with a touch of plaid at their collars and cuffs. The TP signature Colt 44 Shirt, this season in “Wilderness Check”, is available in combinations of blues or reds or in a serape stripe of warm desert hues. Last but not least, there is a lovely soft, antique floral tunic, perfect to layer over a favorite pair of jeans.
The “Great Camps Collection” is the essence of style for relaxed sophisticated living. It opens with the “Charlie Red Horse” cotton knit collection, a stunning Native American Blanket pattern fashioned here into a fringed cardigan, a shawl, a tailored cardigan and a flattering skirt, offered in Blue Grass or Native Red. A background of mountain hues in tangerine, blue grass or antelope are embellished with charming embroideries in the next group of shirts; the “Lauren Shirt”, “Penelope Tree Tunic” and “Jessie Benton Shirt” are accomplished works of needle art, made to layer over the Leopard Pant or under so many of Tasha’s new vests and jackets. Practicality and fashion are artfully merged together in the “Adventure Jacket”, a button-out, fur- trimmed vest inside a cotton twill jacket. While each piece can confidently stand alone, worn together they reaffirm Tasha’s design vision, uniting Native American Textiles with cutting edge fashion, in unexpected combinations.
High Lodge Fashion has never been interpreted more succinctly nor created more excitement than the “Great Camp Blanket Collection”, which includes a short “Canoe Jacket”, “Yakima Cape” as well as a boot length “Great Camp Coat”, all fur trimmed, the blankets in rich mountain shades of brown and blue. Cotton print tunics, flirty ruffle skirts, cotton voile cardigans and romantic blouses round out this group of elegant fashions. There are three new silhouettes to consider in “Red Lodge Plaid”; the “Winnipeg Jacket”, with it’s romantic fur trimmed hood, the “Yukon Cape”, cinched at the waist for a smart and flattering fit and the “Echo Mountain Vest”, updated in a swingy, boxy body with a fur trimmed hood.
The “Great Chateau Cloth” marches on this season in three new fashion colors, Bark, Native Red and Ice. Returning for an encore, the “Luxe Vest” remains an all time favorite. To the mix, Tasha has added the sophisticated “High Country Coat” and the “Chateau Shrug”. If casual sophistication is what you are after, choose the “Jeremiah Coat”, a subtle example of high fashion meeting the things we love, in another unpredictable, fun coat.
Furs, furs and more furs… to layer under, over or wear alone are the recurring theme throughout the “North Woods Collection”. Evoking hearty, statuesque adventurers, this grouping of rich colors and textures is the most tactile collection of the season. The “Sagamore Coat”, trimmed in faux fur at collar and cuff, begs a “grand entry” to one of the Great Lodges of the North. A very feminine Tyler Jacket and Vail Vest add to this pleasing mix. Plaid shirts and solid shirts, embroidered, ruffled or trimmed work together with subtle blanket patterns, once again integrating heritage textiles with modern fashion. The “North Woods Coat”, an above-the-knee “Pine Ridge Skirt” and a reversible “Mountain Wolf Vest” (faux fur reversing to the “North Woods” blanket pattern), volley with the over-the-top “Huron Fur Vest”, skirt and bag for “first place” in this luxurious assortment. For the ultimate in playful opulence, consider faux furs in the “Fox Shrug”, “Kelly Coat” or in the grand dame of all, the “Tzaress Coat”.
