Steven Stolman




If you’ve spent time in the resort town of Southampton, New York, you might be familiar with designer Steven Stolman.

I first learned of his clothing line from a fashionable, Dallas friend. We had invited friends for dinner and she walks in with the most amazing yellow chinoiserie pants I had ever seen. After oooing and ahhing I learned that the designer was Steven Stolman, and that many of his designs are cut from decorators' fabrics—pique sundresses, toile pants, chinoiserie shifts.

His novel use of decorator fabrics and hand-loomed knits for resort wear instantly captured the interest of those who ‘summer’(used as a verb) and became the uniform of the moment.

Apparently a few brave men have taken a liking to Stolman’s designs as well. At a summer event in the Hamptons a few men turned heads in their colorful chinoiserie and toile de Jouy cotton print trousers. Summer+Hamptons+Money=anything goes! I love it!

I love the chinoiserie pants. I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Stolman at his store in Palm Beach.
