With famously fun, retro-chic designs, Alice + Olivia by designer Stacey Bendet adds personality to every wardrobe!
I am simply in love with her whimsical design aesthetic and ability to transform even the little black dress into a work of art. She is playing with texture, beading and bold prints.
Stacey Bendet loves a glam ’70s moment. In her latest evening-ready collection she whirls together a mix of ’70s-inspired patterns, textures, and detailing. The story of the Alice + Olivia designer’s Fall collection is late ’60s, early ’70s boho with a sexy rock-and-roll vibe.
Beading, embroidery, and saturated color.The fabrics are the star. A burnished sherbet-and-rust jacquard is made into a strapless cocktail dress worn over a black lace high-neck blouse. It is also used for a tailored dress coat that paired with matching over knee high boots.
Another floral jacquard – this one in blue, yellow, and silver – constituted a flares and matching long vest ensemble, which is styled back to a simple black turtleneck. A rose-embossed A-line shift is paired with over-the-knee leopard boots, and extra-wide diamond-print palazzo pants doubled as a skirt.
A strapless jumpsuit is sure to please everybody. Its beaded top and tuxedo pants are just rock-and-roll enough.
While the silhouettes are gorgeous, the prints and embellishments are what really make the designs stand out. We are head-over-heels for this season’s dark floral print on everything from tops to blouses to dresses!
