Sabina Les Trunkshow
by Tia Bonds Schryter


We recently visited designer Sabina Les at Bloomingdales Soho for her trunk show and had a chance to view her colorful new collection of scarves. Sabina’s designs combine a modern aesthetic with timeless designs, and luxe pieces at modest price points. It was a pleasure to view the silk accessories in person, and the lovely designer was on hand at the two-day trunkshow to demonstrate the versatile styling options of scarves, which may be worn as a headband, necktie, belt, skirt and even a sexy summer top.



One of our favorite designs was the “animal stud” print scarf, with three dimensional trompe l’oeil studs over a subtle leopard print and fishnet pattern background. All of the scarves in the collection included similar characteristics, with designs that strike the eye and stand out, as compared to a traditional, flat design.

Since the trunk show took place on the week before Mother’s Day, we asked Sabina whether customers were snapping up the bright accessories for their mothers, and she told us that many of them were buying one to gift and one to keep. The designer develops each of her unique prints each season, and they certainly appeal to the young and the young at heart.



Sabina will be hosting another trunk show at Henri Bendel May 17-20! For more information about the label and to learn some handy scarf styling tricks, visit http://www.sabinales.com.
