CURRENT MOOD: ALHAMBRA PRINT
Posted on 01 April 2016
During my trip to Southeast Asia, I saw a lot of this shape but it was usually in the form of interior decor like a small table or a mirror. This print can be casual or fancy with the right accouterments.
When designing, we loved the idea of a cocktail coat. It's something you can literally wear to a cocktail party over a fabulous jumpsuit or shift dress but if you're feeling more casual, styled over ripped up boyfriend jeans and flats is super chic. Because it's crafted in a cotton blend, it's lightweight and can be worn year-round. Oh and best part of all...it's 100% made in the USA! The fabric comes from a mill in North Carolina (yippie) and it's constructed right here in the good ol' Garment District in NYC!
The other Alhambra item we're offering now is the Maria Luisa Alhambra Midi. It's named after Alessandra's super chic Grandmother who was a Philanthropist in the Philippines and the muse behind our collection. Also, my Grandmother, Marilyn, loved rocking a sheath dress. Can you find her in the vintage photograph? She took the family from the Philippines for a trip around the world! Here they are in Italy.
What I love about a midi dress is its casual elegance. You can dress it up with heels for a party or look hot for an after-work date. It's a great piece that will never go out of style and will make your wardrobe POP!
