Éclairée: Enlightened Elegance

New York-based line Éclairée was one of the most-talked about names to emerge from the recent Miami Swim Week. Founded in 2011 by former model Kelly Carrington, the line already boasts the type of refined craftsmanship and uniquely identifiable aesthetic that many brands work years– even decades– to achieve.

The S/S 2013 collection hits all the right trend notes: illusion mesh, high necklines, a confectionery palette and a fresh surf-meets-lingerie approach to color blocking (see: Prada S/S 12, Jil Sander S/S 13). However, Carrington exhibits a mature restraint, never overdosing on the sophistication or sportif aspects, which results in a timeless, widely appealing collection.
