Combining the notion of sustainability with her innate sense of style Kate D’Arcy launched Toggery, a new line of organic clothing for a new age of consumer. Taking intelligent design in a whole new direction, Toggery is fashion for the environmentally conscious consumer.

The clothes are a special blend of contemporary design with environmentally conscious fabrics. They are soft and luxurious, flattering to the figure and a smart choice for the fashionable.

These days, everyone at Big Drop is obsessed with Toggery’s burn out scarves. ($23, Style#TOG-Z9204)
These scarves are airy, semi-sheer, super fun with zebra print and make perfect accessories for spring.

Get to know Kate D’Arcy, the designer of Toggery, as we are anticipating some amazing RTW pieces from her.

BD: How did you get started designing your own line?
KD: I have always loved fashion and wanted to incorporate design/style into my work since I can remember. I dabbled in styling and was always in a never ending search for simple yet essential closet shapes for myself or clients. That’s how TOGGERY by KD came about…the urge and need to create an essential clothing brand that was not only fashionable and functional but also had some thought behind how and what the garments were made of. We only use organic, sustainable, or recycled fabrics in every collection.

BD: What are your favorite trends for this Spring Season?
KD: I love bold unexpected neons mixed with easy neutrals, off the shoulder tops and tunics paired with boyfriend shorts/jeans, cut out booties and wedges.

BD: Who was your fashion icon growing up?
KD: Kate Moss, she hands down has the sickest and most undone yet perfect cool style.

BD: Who is your favorite fashion designer today?
KD: I adore DVF; she is such a strong role model. My dream is to have a career and create a lifestyle brand on the same scale as DVF, Diane inspires me. I hope to meet her some day and thank her for making me explore the thought of making fashion my life and pursuing my dreams of becoming a designer.

BD: What inspires you?
KD: I’m so inspired by the woman I encounter everyday in my work and social life (being a part of the fashion industry in NYC allows me the privilege to be surrounded by people from all walks of life with the most AMAZING personal style), Fashion to me is fun and over the top but there also has to be this touch of function to clothing, so I’m very inspired by nature and wildlife because there is this balance of beauty and function surrounding us every day outside

BD: What is your motto to live by?
KD: Work Hard/Play Hard, be loving and kind to the people around you, speak what is on your mind, be passionate life.

BD: What would you not be able to live without?
KD: Gold Jewelry and Kiehl’s avocado eye cream…I wear both religiously every day!

Plastic Island

kim-kardashian-032810-23

Kim Kardashian was spotted in the streets of LA rocking our stricking Plastic Island blazer, it has seriously become one of my favorites.
This blazer is extremely elegant and can be paired with almost anything, even a simple tank and jeans need nothing further if this is applied to your look.

Whitney Port was seen wearing this jacket with Current Elliot Jeans in NY. This look is so effortless and yet trendy and chic.

The cut, fabric and fit of the jacket is to die for, you must come see for yourself! A must have in your closet and a piece you will definitely get a lot of wear out of. We recommend and give it the BD stamp of approval for a signature spring piece.
