Get to Know…Alice + Olivia

Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet was launched in 2002 with a personal quest to create the perfect pair of pants, and has since grown into a full lifestyle collection including ready-to-wear, gowns, shoes, accessories and handbags. With pieces that juxtapose the whimsical and flirty with the sexy and sophisticated, each Alice + Olivia collection epitomizes the personality and perspective of founder Stacey. Pulling inspiration from the world around her, Stacey incorporates bold colors, unique prints and eclectic details that allow customers to creatively express their individual style.

The latest Spring 2017 Collection from Stacey is set in the romantic mystic gardens in Rome, where the power of interpretation wanders free. This collection balances a modern take on vintage Italian romance, with a touch of the strong, modern transcendent woman who roams the city’s streets, and is comprised of an eclectic mix of pieces and a sharp palette of rainbow tones among black, white and neutrals.

Building on the idea of a woman’s power to style her own look, Stacey also debuted Alice + Olivia’s first full-size eyewear collection this spring season. Reminiscent of Stacey’s signature “staceface” look, the collection consists of handmade Italian acetate sunglasses in bold shapes. Oversize cat eye, square and 80s inspired round frames can be found adorned with Swarvoski crystals, stainless steel studs and pops of color.
