Inspiration for the Fall 2020 collection begins with Goethe’s 1797 poem The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, aiming to capture the enchantment of a magical evening and the fleeting feeling of a once-in-a-lifetime occasion. Drawing from storied New York City nightlife and Truman Capote’s legendary Black and White Ball, this is a collection that highlights fete dressing-from the beau monde to British rock royalty, emphasizing exuberance and extravagance.
Heavily inspired by clean, easy couture lines- suiting and daywear is elongated, lean, and sharp; while evening gowns are fluid and designed for ease of movement. Archival couture fabrics with modern energy are reintroduced in new, ample silhouettes. The knits, too, are abounding- discover lush scarves and tailored daywear in sumptuous woven and double-faced cashmere.
The vivid color palette is meant to catch the eye. Intricate embroideries, heavily inspired by fireworks and their fleeting beauty, illuminate the silhouettes while leaving a lasting impression. This is a dynamic and spirited collection of superlatives, meant to celebrate living life to the fullest and embracing every moment.
