The designer brought us back in time to the 60s and 70s with her latest collection — and a slew of the designer’s celeb fans stepped out to get their first look at the line!
Designer Stacey Bendet stayed true to one of the biggest themes of Fall 2015 — the Seventies! Glam rock frocks and wide-leg trousers that looked like they came right out of the decade, along with boho chic swing dresses and mod patterns from the Sixties, made up her latest line, which debuted during New York Fashion Week. The designer stayed true to the flirty mini silhouettes, ball skirts, a-line looks and plunging dresses which have become a signature in her contemporary collection, while also incorporating a little drama, thanks to the high-neck gowns, floor-length vests and statement outerwear.
Alice + Olivia’s Fall 2015 Collection:
The detailing in the collection was exquisite — from the beadwork to the embroidery and the pretty prints, it was like stepping into a dream closet to play dress up! Feathers, another popular trend this season, also made an appearance, as did lace. Fall florals in a jacquard print, specifically on a long,floor-length coat, reminded me of something Stevie Nicks might have lusted after at the Velvet Underground. Many of the outfits were paired with over-the-knee boots, really evoking the decade — and the playlist helped take us back in time as the Beatles played.
There’s no denying the fact that Stacey knows how to dream up a great party dress — but they weren’t the only standout items in the collection. A crystal-encrusted bodice on a sleek jumpsuit was easily the most glam look, and I can’t wait to see a celeb rock it on the red carpet. I’ve always fallen in love with Stacey’s unique take on outerwear, and she really stepped it up this season with coats with shearling collars, oversized knits, and vests.
Outerwear often makes a first impression and should make a fierce fashion statement, just like the outfit you’re wearing underneath — and it doesn’t get more statement-making than these alice + olivia coats!
Celebs Step Out At Alice + Olivia Presentation:
The presentation isn’t just about the clothes, as Stacey’s famous friends always come out to support the collection — and her Fall 2015 debut was no exception, with AnnaSophia Robb, Paris Hilton, and so many more stars in attendance. The contemporary brand is one of the most popular labels on the red carpet, and I could see her fans, (including eternal boho babe Vanessa Hudgens!), rocking the looks as soon as they can get their hands on them. Model of the moment Kendall Jenner just stepped out in a pair of over-the-knee boots by the brand — and she’s definitely bound to love the way they look paired with the fur-trimmed coats.
The alice + olivia gal sincerely enjoys getting all dolled up — and we can’t wait to see how the celeb set interprets the Fall 2015 collection.
