Brooklyn based fashion designer Suzanne Rae's Spring/Summer 2015 collection is encapsulated by head to toe monochrome black or white with the occasional pop of a head to toe painterly print. The collection captures a women's ability to embody both the delicate and the strong in one simple look.

What inspires the designer to create? For Rae it's all about vintage, a refreshing scent and a good read.

"I can't live without a vintage dress that I found for $10.00. I wear it all different ways in all different seasons. To me it's Poiret meets Denise Huxtable. A copy of The Prophet by Khalil Gibran is always the best go to read when lacking inspiration. I like to stay minimalist when it comes to products but Santa Maria Novella's Aqua di Rose face toner can also be used as a linen rinse. The scent is refreshing and calming in the loveliest way."
