Structured yet feminine silhouettes, metallic knitwear, delicate pleating, embroidered eyelet, and guipure lace add a flair of modernity to wardrobe staples. Whimsical separates and easy jumpsuits allow for effortless dressing, day into dusk. Romantic silhouettes in silk metallics, multi-colored sequins, and lamé fabrics are relaxed and seductive for evening.
