“It’s prep meets pretty, collegiate with a romantic twist.”
- Stacey Bendet
Stacey Bendet does it again. Definitely a collection you never want to miss. Each season she seems to top herself. Always revealing a beautiful mesh of classic with new and edgy accents. Soft colors meet bold prints. Floor grazing ball gowns paired with boxy, cropped jackets and bags. Once again, I am in awe!
White is the new black, with the collection built around sophisticated neutrals accented by pops of pastel. Pink, aqua, yellow and silver complement nude, bone, black and white. Key pieces play on proportion and include the mini skirt, slip dress, crop top, little white suit, and an updated blazer. From beaded jackets slung over collared shirts to modern collarless blazers paired with sexy lace short-shorts, ball gown skirts for daytime and crop tops for all the time, spring is about mixing prep with pretty in a fresh way.
Spring 2014 is the season of the white shoe. Silhouettes include delicate, strappy tapered-toes and chunky platforms with espadrille accents. a+o handbags introduce two new styles - the Jackie and Alli bags - rendered in snake-embossed skins and sporty perforated leathers. Accessories provide contrast to the understated color palette via striking bursts of light aqua green and sunny yellow.
