Capili debuts trendy animal prints line at LA Fashion Week

Karen Capili, one of a new generation of Filipino designers based on the West Coast, this week debuted her Fall 2013 line of ready-to-wear, as well as several new outwear pieces and accessories.
Capili’s Fall 2013 collection is reminiscent of her usual look, however features electric pleats, two-toned metallic lace, skater dresses, soft-look chiffon and fitted and flowing silhouettes to create a contemporary, youthful look that is eclectic and unique in its style.
The outerwear collection will showcase both short and full-length bodies, with closed and open silhouettes. The designs feature a combination of fur (mink, rabbit, rex, raccoon, lamb and ostrich), that are intricately combined with chiffon and leather trims.
Fun and trendy animal skin and prints continue to be the inspiration for the outerwear that includes capes, vests, jackets and coats. Capili has added vests as well, with both sheared and full skin in two-tone using fox, rabbit and raccoon.
Capili’s new line of accessories includes scarves and hats in solids and two-tones, with most pieces made using fur.
Capili’s signature look of bright vivid colors from the 1980s combined with Victorian-era designs is carried-over into her fall collection to create a style that reflect divergent time periods yet create a look that is bold and dramatic, while still classic and formal.
“Fall 2013 is going to be about being unique and eclectic,” said Capili. “I’ve tried to bring a distinctive twist to my usual inspirations to create a line that will let women expand their comfort zone just a bit while not compromising their own unique style
