New Whit Two Collection for Anthropologie by Whitney Pozgay.

For her new Whit Two collection for Anthropologie, New York clothing designer Whitney Pozgay spent a lot of time looking at vintage barkcloth prints and retro tiki patterns from the 1960s. “I love vintage post cards from Hawaii and old pictures of dinner guests at the original Trader Vics,” says Pozgay, who has worked for the likes of Kate Spade, and launched her latest designs after creating a small capsule collection with Anthropologie a few seasons ago. “I have always loved the eclectic spirit that Anthropologie captures so well. It speaks to a sense of wanderlust that we all have. I like the idea of Whit Two being the casual bohemian sister of our main line, and Anthropologie was the perfect partner.”

The 18-piece line is replete with playful, tropical-inspired striped dresses, and bold, floral rompers, jumpsuits, and skirts. But, Pozgay admits she does have one favorite item: “I love the black-and-white floral dress with the cut-out. The silhouette has a modern fit, even though the print feels very vintage-inspired.”

Pozgay, who debuted her initial line five years ago with husband and creative partner, Parker Argote, recently celebrated the launch at Lucques restaurant in L.A. “I’m lucky enough to work with my husband, who paints many of our prints,” she adds. “It has been a fun process, and we challenge each other to come up with new ideas every season. I also feel really lucky that my creative outlet is also my job. It is hard work and not all of it very glamorous, but at the end you get to see ideas come to life.” ‎
