Alice + Olivia Spring 2014
Like Stacey Bendet herself, Alice + Olivia Spring '14 delivered charm — but not without whimsy. Per usual, Bendet struck that perfect balance between the totally wearable and the statement-making, a balance that's won celebrity fans like Jamie Chung, not to mention countless fashion bloggers — who all showed their support at today's presentation.
Girls with a penchant for party dresses will find exactly what they're looking for in this mix of bustier tops, full-length skirts, lacy gowns, and frilly skirts; but there's a crop of slicker stuff, too. You might be surprised to see menswear-inspired leather trousers, slim white blazers, and sportier bomber jackets from the label that's practically a mecca for the girlie-girl, but we're not complaining. The more minimalist cuts and neutral palette make Bendet's series of accessories — embellished clutches, metallic pointed-toe pumps, and lace-ups heels — that much more eye-popping.
