Fashion's newest names are working myriad moods, from the girlish and bohemian to the androgynously cool.
Backstory: Natascha Stolle hails from Charlottesville, Va., and graduated from the University of Virginia, but she calls London home. She's lived there almost a decade and, in February, received her M.A. from Central Saint Martins. Prior to that, she cut her teeth working for British designers Russell Sage and Peter Jensen. Jensen encouraged Stolle to apply for Fashion East, London's emerging designer platform, in which she participated in September.
Collection: Stolle dubs her look "that American dorky girl, but kind of effortlessly stylish." There's a sense of wit to her sportif attitude, too. For instance, the tight, 13-look lineup includes what Stolle calls "a tongue-in-cheek wedding dress." The bottom features a tiered ruffled hem, while the top half has a trompe l'oeil drawing of said ruffles.
Stats: Wholesale prices run from $150 to $345. Available for spring at Jumelle in Brooklyn and Maria Luisa in Paris.
