When designer Lily Raskind sat down to create her spring 2010 collection, she decided to edge more toward the sunny side of her line, Sunshine & Shadow. “This season is about fun, light, easy pieces,“ says Raskind. “I wanted to experiment with colors I’ve never used before, like red and orange. My line has been very print-heavy because the prints are so much fun for me to design, but solids are so wearable and I thought it would be a nice change.” The designer, who just moved to Seattle with her husband this past year, came to New York ten years ago and began making pieces at her home. The clothes, which are now sold at Barney’s, Jumelle, Bird, and Steven Alan, are all produced in the city, with accessories like her now-famous tie-dye scarves and color-blocked belts all made by hand in her Williamsburg and Seattle studios. A new addition for spring is the jewelry, which is all made in-house by Raskind. The handmade necklaces reflect the overall vibe of the collection with their bright palette and casual, yet unique, look. We got a glimpse of the Sunshine & Shadow spring look book, which combines Raskind’s signature graphic prints with bold, bright colors perfect for the warmer days of summer. Check out the collection ahead.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
