pastel prints by leah reena goren

As much as I'm loving the crazy moment neon is having, I'm equally enthralled with the amazing pastel palettes that everyone's loving for spring. One local Brooklyn artist/designer/soon-to-be graduate of Parsons who just happens to be killing this trend is leah reena goren. She is a super talented illustrator (who's done work for a range of clients including etsy, evian, dailycandy, LA-based food truck fruitland + more) and also creates lovely patterns + prints for textiles - including a range of handkerchiefs, headbands, dresses, tanks + T's that immediately caught my eye.  

Her illustrations are crazy-cool (scroll to the end to see a few of my favorites) but it's her selection of light, flowing silk scarves that are works of art themselves - and still on my mind for spring:

Each scarf clearly showcases her unique aesthetic and amazing ability to combine color + pattern to create something romantic, whimsical + fun. The ones I've featured here are all available in her etsy shop, though from her blog it seems that she's constantly coming up with new designs. One of my personal favorites is the black cursive text that's printed on sheer, white silk chiffon and features selections of poems about California written by Chelsey Pettyjohn. Adorable.

...and I just couldn't show you her work without also including a few of her insanely cool illustrations. I picked a few of my favorites to feature below, but definitely take a look at her blog if (like me) you just can't seem to get enough.

enjoy! xo
