With a desire to showcase Canadian talent, Montreal-based retailer Thyme Maternity has partnered with designer Melissa Nepton and will reveal a summer capsule collection this May. Created under the Melissa Nepton for Thyme Maternity label, this clothing line exemplifies the designer’s signature fluidity and feminine style.
Over the course of this collaboration, Nepton had the great joy of experiencing her first pregnancy, which only reinforced the fact that she was the ideal designer to create a clothing line for moms-to-be. For Thyme Maternity, collaborating with Melissa Nepton just seemed an obvious choice. “Melissa Nepton is, without question, one of the most talented young designers in the country. What’s more, she perfectly embodies the image of the modern mom who understands the importance of maintaining one’s style and sense of comfort throughout pregnancy,” continues Ms. Liboiron. “It seemed only natural to work together, and I can say that we are thoroughly excited about this partnership.”
MN for Thyme Maternity
Drawing upon their mutual favourites from Melissa Nepton’s eponymous collections, Thyme Maternity and the designer created a line featuring 10 styles in an array of colours, all modelled specifically for expectant women. As such, moms-to-be will soon be able to pick up some of the designer’s signature pieces, whose technical elements have been reworked to beautifully suit maternity silhouettes. The designs and fits were developed to showcase fabulous pregnancy curves and to offer absolute comfort without sacrificing style
Colour and Coquetry
“This capsule collection features the distinctive characteristics of my regular collections,” affirms Melissa Nepton, “such as transparency, comfort and modernity. And wit pregnancy being the ultimate celebration of femininity, I wanted to add a flirtatious allure to the collection. As a result, I added pastel touches of pink, coral and seafoam to my signature white and black. The collection also features my chiffon blouses, striped tanks and draped dresses, all reworked to outfit moms-to-be.”
With this partnership, Thyme Maternity continues to offer its clientele fashionable clothing that is as attractive as it is comfortable. Fabrics featured in the collection are soft and flowy, ideal to wrap the women who wear them in stylish comfort. Furthermore, the unique pieces in this collection offer a sense of beauty, femininity and sophistication to all who wear them
Priced from $35 to $90, designs from the Melissa Nepton for Thyme Maternity collection will be available in Yorkdale as of May 17, 2014
