NYFW Post-script: Marissa Webb Spring/Summer 2013

29/10/2012 § Leave a comment

Just a short post-script on a lovely collection I missed seeing during NYFW.  Marissa Webb, the eponymous line by the former head of womenswear design at J.Crew, takes the best of the iconic classics she perfected over 11 years at the helm of the national brand and adds just the right amount of maturity and edge.  Her premier collection is tailored without sacrificing femininity, and best of all, features more than a few ties.  She has some beautiful prints, but I really find myself drawn to the monochrome suits and the solid contrast looks — the red suit and the black and white dress are definitely the high notes.  See the full lookbook here.

I’m still unaware of the stockists at this point, but definitely watch this space.
Marissa Webb is showing all signs of being a longtime favorite.

Prêt-à-Porter: Winterizing

02/03/2011 § 5 Comments

Cherie, spring is taking its sweet time to appear, is it not?  No matter, I have decided that I can’t wait for warmer climes to wear my lightweight dresses.  I officially reject the concept of season-appropriate clothing in an effort to combat my low-grade seasonal depression.  However, in order to avoid freezing to death, I’ll need to winterize.  Here, I’ve paired one of my favorite summer dresses with a wool cowl neck sweater, scarf and wool tights.

Have a few dresses you miss dearly?  There’s no reason to wait.  Bring them out and warm up with a few cozy layers.

Peek of an elbow patch.  I love grandpa sweaters.
