Fashion Week NY - Alice + Olivia
My favorite show on Monday was Alice + Olivia's autumn collection inspired by the illustrated pop-up books of Benjamin Lacombe. Designer Stacey Bendet created her own fairy tale with the title "Enchanted: The Search for the Golden Monarch" and let the story be presented on a paper scroll by the models. The clothes indeed were fairytale like and I especially like the bold use of colors. According to the designer herself, the clothes also were tying back to a Victorian element, which could be seen for example in the high-neck blouses and dresses and the rich patterns.
