For Fall 2014, Stacey Bendet’s collection for alice + olivia is, “Enchanted: A Midwinter Night’s Dream”. Sharp tailoring combines with vintage Victorian charm and bohemian beauty, creating a free-spirited decadence. Stacey Bendet says of the collection, “This season is about sexiness and fantasy – luxury and decadence in a wearable way.”
The collection features bold brocades, rich velvet, regal lace and opulent metallics, mixed with monarch butterfly motifs. Dreamy prints on tapestry fabrics are adorned with fine filigree amid jewel-toned blue, green and “royal red”. Metallic is the new black, while camel, cream and chocolate serve as a rich neutral base. Romantic collars, lace blouse details, ruffled sleeves and chokers are paired with ultra-miniskirts, slouchy menswear-inspired pants and the new fitted denim trouser – a juxtaposition of the past and the present.
