    Krimson Klover Spring Fashion Memo

    Krimson Klover Spring Fashion Memo

    Krimson Klover Spring Fashion

    This season showcases the SILHOUETTE. Shift dresses, high-waisted skirts, sheer basics and EXQUISITE necklines are PLAYFUL but POLISHED. Sheer tops hint at ROMANCE with featherweight fabrics and VIBRANT colors. BOLD prints, transitional basics and FEMININE finishes strike a balance between SOFTNESS and STRENGTH. Longing for bare shoulders and EFFORTLESS style, open stitch linens are made to MOVE. It’s not a subtle hue but a POP! of color. It’s a spring packed with COMPLIMENTARY pieces for those balmy but chilly nights. Here’s to a spring that’s a little less delicate with an emphasis on ENERGY and ADVENTURE. Spring is an invitation – say YES.

    

    Krimson Klover Trade Show Wrap Up

    Krimson Klover Trade Show Wrap Up

    Krimson Klover recently wrapped up another trade show season and we're pleased to report that our three major shows, Outdoor Retailer, SIA Snow Show and Stitch were all a huge success.

    Our Fall 2015 line made its debut at the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City, Utah.

    Latest Krimson Klover Collection

    Trade shows are not only a great opportunity to show off the latest Krimson Klover collection, but it's also a nice way to meet our dealers, reps and colleagues across different industries and markets. As a first time trade show attendee, I welcomed the chance to put faces with names and get acquainted with the people that truly make Krimson Klover a success.

    Retailers Stopping By Booth

    These trade shows allow retailers to stop by the Krimson Klover booth and preview the line in order to decide what pieces will appeal to their customer. It's always exciting for us to see the reactions of the dealers and determine which pieces we nailed for the upcoming season. The response to this year's Fall line was overwhelmingly positive and we are thrilled that our collection can get people excited for yet another long winter.

    The "Conquering the Elements" fashion show at Outdoor Retailer was a fun kick off to the show and the Krimson Klover pieces looked great coming down the runway.

    Specializing in Luxury Fibers

    Krimson Klover specializes in luxury fibers and beautiful patterns so it's not enough to simply see the garments in a catalog or on the mannequin. We invite people to get up close, feel how soft the wool is and mix and match the pieces to create a color story that their customer will love.

    Merino wool, pima cotton/silk and cashmere make this new collection stand out and our new performance wool ensures that the pieces stand up to your active lifestyle.

    Look! It's Krimson Klover on the cover of the SIA Snow Show Daily (bottom right).

    There is no doubt that we impressed the folks in the outdoor and snow sport industries with our vintage inspired ski sweaters, hand-painted base layers and our new performance wool blends, but we wondered how some of our sportier styles would resonate at Stitch which boasts a more contemporary style.

    In the end, it turns out that Krimson Klover is a brand that appeals to many women. The Krimson Klover woman loves her ski boots as much as her designer handbag and is at the same time an adventurer and a trendsetter. We are confident that this collection is perfect for powder days, date nights and everything in between.

    Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello and check out the Fall '15 collection. A BIG thanks to everyone who helped us out both at the show and behind the scenes. Look for Krimson Klover Fall '15 to hit the stores and the website in August. In the meantime, let's think Spring!

    As an east coast girl, when summer hits Colorado I long for days on the water, salty air and a cool sea breeze. If you are taking off for a vacation by the sea, here are a few ideas for what to pack for all of your beach vacation to-dos.

    Maxi Dresses are a summer staple for a reason- comfortable and versatile, they are an excellent item to pack. In a fun stripe for a nautical feel, this Ella Moss dress will get you through cocktails on the deck with ease or dress it up with a wedge and clutch for classy night out.

    If you are headed out for a sail, slip into crisp white denim shorts, a fun floral top and Keds. Bring along the airy Aston cardigan to protect you from the sun and keep the chill away as the sun sets.  The Aston cardigan is a must for any traveler, a perfect cover-up that doesn’t get wrinkled in your suitcase- It doesn’t get better than that!

    A seaside vacation would not be complete without a day out in one of the quaint port towns, keep your style relaxed in the lightweight Raven sweater, paired with bright red skinnys  and d’orsay flats. This outfit is will carry you through a day poking around town and keep you comfortable at a clam bake on the beach at night.

    All of these items are easy to mix and match. You can pack light and create a variety of outfits to match your daily pursuits. Head to the ocean for relaxation and bring you effortlessly chic style with you!

    Krimson Klover Fashion Show Recap

    Krimson Klover Fashion Show Recap

    Sierra Brill, Vail Mountain School student, approached our owner, Rhonda Swenson, at the beginning of the semester with a goal of putting on a Krimson Klover fashion show for her senior project. As part of her project she would also intern with us at the office to learn the day-to-day operations of a fashion manufacturer.

    On her first day as an intern Sierra helped us create knitting specifications for the Fall ’13 sweater samples. While this is a long and rather cumbersome process she later said that “for someone enchanted by fashion it was really exciting to learn about how design works.”

    With a task like putting together a fashion show, there is a lot of work that must be done. After meeting with the KK team she had checklist of what needed to happen in order to pull off the event.

    After locking down her models, Sierra enlisted the help of her photographer father and a few models to have a photo shoot in Vail Village.  The pictures were excellent and we spent some time getting together the images and creating e-blast invitations for the show.

    With a date and time set for the fashion show the ball was rolling. During her next few visits to the office Sierra put together looks and model sequences. With the help of the KK team we tweaked them and made sure they were eye-catching.

    The day before the show Sierra held a dress rehearsal and even more changes were made to the outfits - shoes were shuffled, accessories were added and colors were altered.

    When the show rolled around the next day Sierra had obviously done the work, with woodland decorations, appetizers and a red carpet it was welcoming and elegant atmosphere.

    The high-energy models kept the crowd smiling throughout and did an excellent job showcasing the Krimson Klover line.  It was a great success, job well done Sierra and congratulations on finishing off your senior year with a bang!
