"French romantic meets Annie Hall" is how French designer Alice Ritter describes her collection of easy dresses, breezy tunic tops, and other separates. Based in New York City, Ritter gives her Paris-inspired, bohemian styles a Manhattan edge—think ruffled blouses combined with military-style jackets, frilly tops over work-ready, wide-legged pants, and dresses that range from flouncy and tiered to form-fitting and flattering. Alice Ritter clothing has become a favorite among fashion-forward celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Katie Holmes as well as Elle and Vogue. With Piplette, her collaboration with Urban Outfitters, mainstream audiences are also starting to take notice of Ritter's elegant designs.
Obsess about these previously unattainable looks no more, as they’re now that much closer to becoming yours. More wallet-friendly but just as enticing are utilitarian-style looks from Nicolas K. and silk blouses and delicate lace or cotton eyelet dresses from Marc by Marc Jacobs, to name a few.
French designer Alice Ritter founded her namesake line of womenswear almost a decade ago when she left her hometown of Paris for New York City. Capturing the coveted notion of easy French cool that the designer has rightly dubbed "French Romantic meets Annie Hall," her signature plaid blouses, country summer frocks, and motorcycle jackets have become favorites of everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Katie Holmes. Frequently featured in the pages of Elle and Vogue and found on the racks of Barneys New York and Nordstrom, Alice Ritter’s combination of romantic soft lines and tough Parisian girl finesse is now available at Gilt Groupe.
