Alice + Olivia Fall 2017 Collection Launch
Alice + Olivia’s Fall 2017 collection is inspired by Salman Rushdie’s novel The Enchantress of Florence. The collection draws from the vibrant rich settings of Mughal India and the romanticism of Renaissance Florence, depicting the story of a woman creating her own destiny in a man’s world. Stacey Bendet has created a rich wardrobe for the global woman, a woman, who like Rushdie’s enchantress, has “forged her own life, beyond convention, by the force of her will alone.” Comprised of an eclectic mix of pieces and a sharp color palette of reds, pinks, and jewel tones, Bendet has created a serene fantasy with notes of magic realism for this collection.
The collection juxtaposes feminine pieces like lace tops with dramatic bell sleeves, sequin and silk slip dresses, and ruffle skirts with utilitarian separates such as patent leather bombers, camo pants, boxy jackets, camo jackets, and cargo pants. The a+o girl will mix and match these statement pieces, pairing sequin pantsuits with statement tees, embellished floral tops with patent leather skirts and combat boots, sequin embellished mini-skirts with leather varsity jackets, and lace-up thigh-highs and embellished cigarette jeans with tweed jackets with pearl detailing. Each look embodying a woman who is both fierce and feminine.

ROBERTA ROLLER RABBIT
The Samarkand Collection
Wanderlust can be understood as a desire to travel, but also, a nostalgia felt for places one has never visited.
In 2001, on one of my first trips to Bangkok, I struck up a friendship with three young Afghani brothers who ran a gem store. When I mentioned that I was fascinated by vintage fabrics from the SILK ROAD, the youngest brother, who was a passionate collector, started to show and subsequently sell me Suzanis and Ikats gathered over the years across Kabul and Peshawar.
In the Samarkand Collection, I was inspired by the great cities on the SILK ROAD. Particularly, one of the oldest of them all, Samarkand, renowned for its ancient dyeing arts. These are lands I have never visited, but have always longed to experience.
The Caravanserai Collection
At a time when travel and communications were infinitely harder, but at the same time borders and frontiers markedly more porous, the SILK ROAD of Central Asia connected diverse ethnic groups, primarily through trade and commerce.
Intrinsic to the SILK ROAD were the Caravanserai, guest houses designed to host traveling merchants as they made their way along the trade routes. They were places of rest, and more importantly, a site for the exchange of culture, language, and ideas.
I have always thought of our stores as Caravanserai, a global locus for the interchange of traditions and experiences. In the Caravanserai Collection, we build upon the colors, the embroideries, and patterns of the multi-ethnic SILK ROAD.
Stella McCartney introduces their Autumn 2017 Collection
An insouciant take on British style with a mix of masculine and feminine. Eclectic energy is created by combining a traditional English essence with playful and unexpected detailing. In a nod to Savile Row tailoring; a Prince of Wales check is layered with dogtooth. The silhouette is lean and masculine, a double breasted peak lapel jacket worn with a straight slim drainpipe trouser to elongate the leg. Outerwear and coats are elongated with twists on detailing, a stretched martingale belt or an asymmetric lapel detail. A non-traditional trench is cut from a supple, soft alter nappa with a stretched collar and a belted high waist and a moss green alter suede voluminous belted coat emphasizes the waist. Woolen coating fabrics are cut into long, structured, double breasted coats for a sharp effect; some with a flat Melton finish and others, a pronounced twill. A statement floral tapestry jacquard coat is worn over faux fur trimmed trousers for a sumptuous array of texture.
Stella McCartney is always functional without compromising on style and staying true to the designer’s vegetarian philosophy, completely cruelty free.
