NEW YORK…Trovata designer John Whitledge has been through ups and downs with his ever-popular label, but for Spring/Summer 2009 he seems to have hit his stride. Sticking to the Trovata formula for California casual, Whitledge looked to late ’60s era vacationers as inspiration, keeping the palette neutral and cool and the silhouettes comfortable and loose. Key pieces like jumpsuits with braid detailing, classic slip-on sneakers, and shorts in over sized gingham all provide perfect staples for juniors looking to round out their wardrobes. A clean and refreshing beginning to New York fashion week.
