DESIGNER PICKS: Wilber Tellez of Filthy Haanz Shares His Advice For Clothing and Accessories For Spring 2015
We had a chance to catch up with Wilber Tellez the creative designer behind an cool Montreal boutique with even a funkier name : Filthy Haanz on summer trends and what to wear for Spring 2015.
- What are your three essential must-haves for women this season and why?
A swimsuit that compliments your figure first and foremost and not just the trend, a fab new cover up for lounging out poolside, and of course the sun dress for the countless summer brunch dates.
- What are your favourite trends this season?
You can never go wrong with a floral print for spring.
- What are your favourite accessories women need to start wearing this season?
Definitely a solid pair of designer sunglasses. Oh, and amazing head scarf is always fun!
- How do you define your latest collection?
The Filthy Haanz Gold label is designed for the upper west-side socialite that tells the story of an untamed and sophisticated lifestyle. For SS15 I was inspired by “Bollywood Graffiti”—the allure and glamour of Bollywood juxtaposed by the vibrant colors and raw energy of the everyday folk. The collection is enormous and exciting! It’s 42 pieces and includes everything from cover-ups and mens’s/women’s swimwear, to beach dresses and button-ups.
- If women could only buy one piece from your collection, what would it be and why?
Our white cotton silk sundress is our season’s must have for every summer gal. It’s the classic pure white beach dress with a luxurious gold detailed waistline. Not to mention, the unique cotton silk fabric will keep you cool and sexy all summer long!
