Daniela Corte Gets Ready for Spring

See what the Boston-based designer has in store for the warmer months.

Daniela Corte opened the doors to her Newbury boutique in November — shoppers can now browse her perfectly tailored pencil skirts, silk blouses, and flattering swimwear in a bright, garden-level setting.

Spring will bring fresh new florals (“The explosion of colors makes me happy!” she says), soft pastel hues, and lots of shine. Look for color-blocking, prints, and sequins. Check out both collections — and the store, if you haven’t already — at three events next month:

• Friday, February 10: Guys Night
Grab a cocktail and take in pieces from Bodega and Miami-based designer J Urturbey’s spring/summer 2012 collection.

• Thursday, February 16: Fruit Cocktail Trunk Show
Launch of the resort collection, hosted by Paulina Neely and Heidi Price.

• Friday, February 24
Gretchen Monahan will give makeovers at the launch of Daniela Corte’s spring/summer 2012 collection.
