We just got in a few pieces of the Camilla and Marc resort 2014 collection in our St. Helena store. The Australian brother and sister duo created gorgeous color blocked dresses. The incorporated unexpected details such as mesh and zippers, making them pieces that are completely unique for cocktail dresses. They design for the confident woman who wants to be noticed and in their pieces. You will definitely be a showstopper! Launching in 2003, the brand became practically an overnight success, gathering a celebrity fan based with starlets like Kirsten Dunst, Kate Bosworth and Kristen Stewart. Their design style has been defined as ‘strong yet feminine and effortlessly elegant’ which I think hits the nail on the head. The pieces emulate power and confidence.
Featuring in this post, one of the newest members of our team, Celeste modeling the gowns. Come stop by our St. Helena store and try them on for yourself. They are perfect for all the upcoming holiday events.
The amazing Canadian brand Smythe, which I have mentioned before on the blog, has done it again for their Resort 2014 collection. We just got in a few pieces early, and the jackets are as gorgeous as always. A cropped sleeve, printed blazer that looks like it was hand water-colored. A raw hemmed, bright blue tweed jacket that looks like a modern take on the classic Channel jacket. A long black, boucle coat that is a great transition piece for nearly every season. When ever new pieces come in, we all get so excited because we never know what it will look like. Always that impeccable tailoring and fit that Smythe is known for, but with such varying inspirations from season to season that it is never what you would expect. Also, the photos they shoot to show their collection, I am always in awe of. They show such cool ways to style them, ways that you wouldn’t expect, and show such life and energy. Come by our St. Helena store to check out these new pieces before they are gone!
