Pola Thomson


New York based, Chilean designer Pola Thomson produces a womenswear and accessories collection with a Zen minimalist sophistication, juxtapositioned with unexpected volume and shape. Combining slender pants with trapeze shaped tops and oversized sculptural jackets, the collection is realized in a rich graphic color story of midnight blue, crisp white and camel, punctuated with brilliant scarlet and powder pink.


Produced in lush crisp duchess satin, fluid silk charmeuse, crisp white cotton and the finest wool sateen, the line is rich in material expression. Thomson’s signature jewelry features broad, bold swathes of shiny Perspex collars, bibs and cuffs, contrasted with natural wooden elements whipped into place with matching or contrasting cording.


Thomson graduated from the prestigious Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile with a Bachelors degree in Design, followed by a global design sampling of fashion courses that included Central Saint Martins in London, and Parsons the New School in New York.
