Alice + Olivia and Estee Lauder‘s creative director, Donald Robertson are back with a second capsule collection, debuting vintage-inspired pieces with distinctive patterns. Using vintage touches and retro inspirations, the collection’s vibrant prints won’t go unnoticed this upcoming summer.
CEO and creative director of Alice + Olivia, Stacey Bendet, has an eye for artistry with an edge through feminine designs. After their first successful collaboration in November 2015, the duo found whimsical designing in common. The collection consists of eclectic colors and flirty lip motifs splayed over the pieces like the sneakers and tote bag. Featuring leopard lip prints, the patterns are also seen on bomber jackets, midi dresses, t-shirts, a blouse and a clutch with red lip motif details.
Robertson’s illustrations highlight the pieces with its drawings of fashionistas with trendy sunglasses, rainbow and zebra print pants, and a chic beret as a finishing touch. Eclectic colors flatter one’s outfit whether layering or color blocking. Adding tote bags and sneakers with the lip motifs, the collection is a perfect start for fresh summer looks. A stand out piece was a red long sleeve wrap dress with leopard lip prints, perfectly complimenting one’s figure. Once again, Bendet and Robinson prove that color and expressive prints are necessary to make a fashion statement.
The collection’s prices range from $225 to $1,296 and will be available on Apr. 25 in Alice + Olivia‘s site and select retailers.
