A classic aline, in beautifully restored fabric. The Carleen quilt skirt is tapered at the waist with a cotton band, and buttons in the back. The thick vintage quilt holds a subtly wave at the hem, and ends just below the knee.
Carleen is a Brooklyn-based womenswear collection designed by Kelsy Parkhouse, who draws influence from her Southern California upbringing, folk-art motifs, fine art inspiration, and commitment to domestic manufacturing. Founded in 2012, her collections draw inspiration from the handmade American quilt, a textile that continues to inform the Carleen aesthetic both visually and metaphorically.
