Spring/Summer 2012 Collection: PRIMAVERA

This spring, designers are showing a mixture of ripe, vivid colors, as well as ultra feminine styles with lots of pink. Color blocking is still hot, bold solid pieces in dynamic combinations, and even mixed with tribal prints. Tangerine is a standout this season, as are sweet sorbet shades for a ladylike glow. Layer Katya necklaces in shades of pink and orange, like Pink Tangerine with Juicy on a trio of Bangles. 
Left to right: Kathy earrings with Robin's Egg, Serena earrings with Dragonfly, Maggie necklace with Lime Mist, Tanya earrings with Pink Tangerine, Shooting Stars earrings with Riviera



Also hot are vibrant swirling head-to-toe patterns, oversized florals, geometric shapes. Try Tanya (teardrop), Cathy (round) or Pam (diamond) to complement patterns and florals - with a large glass stone in Riviera, inspired by the Cote d'Azur - or Robin's Egg for your garden party ensemble.

Flirt without saying a word in this season's peplum skirts, dresses and tops. Wear Katya's Lariat with contrasting colors for the two sides, like Lime Mist on one side and Pink Tangerine on the other - tr├ęs juicy! How about Katya's new Vertigo set with a Dragonfly stone - pink it up with a flouncy floral dress and you're off to the races!

KATYA Spring Collection 2011

April showers bring May flowers … and as we blossom into springtime, the air warms and colors begin to brighten, like tender flower buds that open slowly with sun’s caress to reveal their inner beauty … colors that stir spring awakening in our hearts and souls, inspired by earth and sea, by shadow and light, by exotic faraway places, by our own deepest desires.

KATYA’s spring and summer collection is inspired by all of these things, and more! Each collection - there are two for each season – has been personally created by Katya Wittenstein, a truly inspired artist and designer whose generous and creative spirit is imbued in each exquisitely styled and hand-crafted piece. 

You will surely find a bit of your own spirit in the colors and styles she has created for these collections … a bit of sky to brighten your day, a splash of sea to refresh, the blush of love, bright juicy colors for fun and whimsy … all combined with the sparkle and magnetism of sterling silver … isn’t it amazing how the dangle of an earring, the twist of a necklace, the jingle jangle of bracelets can make a girl feel oh so alive!

* * *
KATYA’s spring collections will be revealed in April, followed by the summer collections in May. These collections will be posted here, and on our Facebook page


In June, we will showcase these collections in the first KATYA fashion show in Sausalito, California, so save the date for this exclusive event. And if you can't join us live, we'll be posting video highlights on our Facebook and Youtube pages!
