Calla Haynes

fashion02

Paris-based, Toronto-born Calla Haynes knows a thing or deux about haute couture.

At only 29, the unassuming Haynes already has a Parsons School of Design diploma, stints at Olivier Theyskens and Nina Ricci, and a prestigious ANDAM award nomination on her impressive CV. Women adore her sheer, flowy textiles and unique, pixelated prints which manage to be both nostalgic and thoroughly modern. For spring ’12, the bright-lipped, bouffant-haired models in sheer dresses, skirts and ladylike blouses were straight out of a ’60s Italian gelateria. Up next? A capsule women’s collection with French denim brand April 77, features wait-list-worthy psychedelic printed jeans and jackets.
