For its spring 2015 campaign, Bloomingdale’s recruited the talents of seven fashion designers to create exclusive ready-to-wear clothing made out of their brightly colored Crayola crayons. The project is part of the ongoing 100% Bloomingdale’s campaign promoting exclusive looks each season. Nanette Lepore created an elaborate dress with “Laser Lemon“-colored crayons, Rebecca Minkoff fashioned a casual swing dress from “Banana Mania” crayons, Parker used a “Jungle Green” for their adorable jumper, Rebecca Taylor made a beautiful dress with a slit skirt made using “Midnight Blue” crayons, and Torn by Ronny Kobo went for broke with a gorgeous “Bittersweet” dress, all of which were captured beautifully by photographer Matthew Carasella. These are currently on display at the 59th Street Bloomingdale’s location in New York City and March 12 at Bloomingdale’s SoHo.

“It’s an optimistic and fearless color,” the designer says of her sunny shade. “It demands attention because it deserves attention.” She used crayon tips and ends to fashion an exquisitely three-dimensional textured bodice.

“It’s modern and sophisticated while not being too serious,” Taylor says. “Midnight Blue evokes confidence.” She conveyed that confidence with a cut-out jumpsuit with a bodice completely studded with crayon tips.

“It’s the color of clovers!” exclaims designer Rozae Nichols, who used the coloring utensil to line the collar and hemline on a green shift.

Rebecca Minkoff

Crayola color: Banana Mania

“Yellow is the color of optimism, happiness, and creativity,” Minkoff says. “It brings to mind warmth and sunshine—the perfect feeling to have after our long, cold winter in N.Y.C.” To illustrate that, she stacked the cheery crayon line by line, row by row on her easy collared dress.

The designer may have called Bittersweet, “feminine and fresh,” but we think her use of the color and material is fierce. She studded the yoke and hemline, and dotted the rest with crayon disks.


Crayola color: Jungle Green

“Jungle Green is energetic and sure to bring any wardrobe back to life,” say designers Derek Farrar and Laurieanne Gilner of their playful romper made of Crayola wrappers and lined crayons. “Not only is it environmentally sound, but it gives us a serious case of spring fever.”
