"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.
Self-dubbed “French romantic meets Annie Hall,” designer Alice Ritter seamlessly merges Parisian cool with a Manhattan edge, for a collection that’s adored by celebrities like Katie Holmes and Jennifer Lopez. Menswear gets a girly twist with the black cotton Louna vest, unexpectedly feminine with a semi-attached ruffle panel at the front waist. And the navy-and-white striped top lends a French-chic vibe to the studded high-waist pants.
Meet the new romantic! A marriage of traditionally feminine and tough details give this crop of dresses, separates and accessories a distinctly modern appeal. Bows, lace and rosettes adorn dangerously high stilettos; drapey silk chiffon tops are less romantic thanks to dangling chain links; and a ruffled silk dress feels more punk than girly when rendered in eye-popping fluorescent pink. There is plenty to fall in love with.
