THE SPRING 2022 FASHION WEEK CAPSULE COLLECTION
FROM THE DESK OF ALESSANDRA PEREZ-RUBIO
I have been counting down the days in anticipation to the official launch of our spring collection which always very ceremoniously drops in tandem with the commencement of New York Fashion week. This was a little tradition Lou and I started years ago as our own way of participating in all the hoopla of fashion week. While fashion week was and still is characteristically an exclusive affair, we wanted to include all of you in the hype of this new collection launch. As we’ve always said, fashion should never be exclusive! These dresses have been in the planning stages for the better part of a year, with me starting the design process way back in April of 2021! Lou and I have poured our hearts and souls into each piece, trying to get every detail as close to perfection as possible.
I might always say this about every collection I design, but spring 2022 has been one of the most fun collections to see come to life. I found myself indulging in the opulent florals that makes spring so enticing. My mood board for spring 2022 was exactly as you would imagine: images of unapologetically blooming wildflowers, vintage photographs and bursts of midsummer dreamy landscapes. Designing an optimistic spring collection is like second nature to me. This season you will see romantic watercolor pallets, a new take on our signature chinoiserie and our own take on slip dresses, which are all the rage these days. With the introduction of more daytime pieces, lounge and accessories, the flowery Mestiza aesthetic is now relevant to different moments in your life. You no longer have to worry about falling in love with a piece and having nowhere to wear it! This is the age of versatility with dresses that embody a very pure optimism and joy for the year ahead. I hope you fall in love with them as much as we have.
