Katharine Polk is the creative director and designer behind Houghton, a ready-to-wear fashion label based in New York. Houghton’s Her 2014 bridal collection is a refreshing change from the huge meringue skirts and embellishments of traditional bridal collections. I particularly like the addition of broad-rimmed hats, polka dots, masculine tailoring and a simple white t-shirt.
“Houghton’s distinctive look merges the finest imported fabrics, precise tailoring and exquisite details with simple, timeless silhouettes. Katharine brings her signature “easy chic” style to the line; the clothes are always wearable and comfortable. She cites Katharine Hepburn and Bianca Jagger as inspirations; strong women with timeless style and confidence.”
Their Spring/Summer 2014 collection is also quite lovely. You can check it out here.
