You always manage to pull off a certain level of “chic-yet-effortless”, both in your designs and your own personal style. How did you translate that signature look into your fall 2014 collection?

RT: For fall we wanted to use unexpected pairings of colors, techniques, and fabrics.  For example, we mixed crepe and jersey to create the Stacy Top, which is both a weekend and a weekday staple. I love how the White Noise Dress is a “throw on and go” option—the combo of chiffon and silk gives it an uncomplicated charm. 

Plus, you can wear the combo pieces separately! Our Jersey and Lace Tee is an update to your basic everyday tee shirt.  The lace detailing gives it an elevated feel. I love the idea of effortless chic. The Short Sleeve Lynx Top paired back with a pair of boyfriend jeans is my go to for a casual day at the office. The print is soft, feminine and easy. For the chilly weekend nights I always tend to find myself pulling out my Long Sleeve Chain Sweatshirt. I like to layer this back to a plaid oxford and jeans.

 

What tips do you have for busy, stylish women when it comes to versatile day-to-night dressing?

RT: Pick something you really love and feel comfortable in.  The Dotty Dress is a good balance between feminine and demure; the mesh lace sleeve adds a touch of sheerness while still being appropriate.  The embellished Georgette Top can be worn layered for day with a blazer or cardi, and then by itself for dinner or a date.

For the businesswoman, our Tweed and Leather Shift Dress is a perfect staple black dress that can be worn to the office and then out to happy hour paired with a statement bag and heels.

If I can give one piece of advice for the fall season, it would be to keep it simple and chic. I’m loving the idea of the Sleeveless Tweed Ponte Dress with Lace, this piece is a great mixture of texture and femininity---and can go from day to night!

My favorite things about fall are…

RT: Outerwear and sweaters! I love the idea of an oversized knit such as a long sleeve v-neck color block pullover paired with a textured skirt like our Textured Flounce Skirt.

Prints are also a must. One of my favorites is our Leopard Peacoat. I love a good animal print and this coat also embodies a menswear silhouette, which is another look I am crazed over for fall.

Neutral pallets are another essential, and should be incorporated every woman’s closet for the season. The Sleeveless V-neck Crepe Top in Pumice is a great layering piece which can be worn with a jacket, chunky cardigan or even alone paired with a skinny jean and boots.

New Brand Spotlight: Staple

Staple, Staple apparel, new brand spotlight, Jeff Staple, Staple men's apparel, Staple men's clothing,

In 1997, Jeff Staple walked into a New York City boutique and received his first order of 12 silkscreened t-shirts—and Staple® was officially open for business. What started as a small t-shirt line handmade by Jeff Staple grew organically and began to gain visibility in the city.

In the process of building this burgeoning brand, Jeff Staple was hired in 2005 to create a special sneaker to represent New York. The Staple Pigeon icon was conceived and was branded on the heels of a limited (and now most coveted) 150 pairs of basketball shoes, leading to much fanfare upon its release and exposing sneaker culture, and Staple, to the masses.

The Staple Pigeon is now a world-renowned symbol, which reflects the gritty and reckless energy New Yorkers (and all urban dwellers) possess. It not only exists as a representation of New York, but is also the influence behind Staple’s extensive apparel range and collaborative products distributed in the top retailers across the globe. Inspired by street culture and design, Staple’s reach encompasses many different landscapes such as music, art, and fashion.

NYFW Recap: Nicole Miller Spring/Summer 2015

Lola from Copacabana would have adored the vibrant tropical vibes of the Nicole Miller Spring 2015 collection at New York Fashion Week this past weekend. Marked by eye-catching prints with plenty of high-contrast black and white in the mix, the stunning assortment sashayed down an optical black and white runway inspired by the pavements of the legendary Rio neighborhood.

The decidedly feminine collection offered up lots of bodycon silhouettes, ruffled hemlines, pencil skirts, and there was certainly no shortage of cropped tops! Seeing this fun and lively lineup makes us even more excited for spring!
