I work from home and keep the TV on most of the day for background noise, so I'm sick of hearing about the latest shop to go lower-price because our economy is currently as dead as Chris Brown's career. I'll save you the story about price points on Lavender Label, but suffice it to say it's more affordable than many lines. Plus, like Jenni Kayne, LL now offers shoes.
When Vera told editors at her presentation that she was going for medieval-mod, everything made sense. LL keeps the sheer trend going with this 60s-appropriate mini, but to me the boots feel a bit punk. The more generations the merrier?
Colour blocking - yep, still mod. This simple, sleeveless top could easily pair with the satin cropped trousers Wang showed later.
A look only for the brave, I'd pair the sheer, geometric skirt with a pair of grey skinnies. The belt-waisted top has a restrained sense of chic.
One of my favourite styles is lots of layers mixed with just a few flashes of skin, so Wang had me with this one. The capelet-cardigan combo makes an interesting balance for the no-bra sheer top (and avoids making friends blush), and with understated Capris and flats, it's not vulgar.
I picture someone wearing this at an outdoor cafe on a Saturday in early September at about 5 p.m. Not that I'm getting particular. The trench is classic, and the amethyst shade will make sure you stand out - without breaking the bank.
