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 <i>Elle</i> and <i>Vogue</i> 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.
Talk about a power trio: Acne offers slouchy boyfriend blazers, slim chinos, and fiercely cut tops. Kimberly Ovitz’s sharp, asymmetric cuts, hint-of-skin cutouts, irregular patterns, and figure-flattering fits give her dresses and separates an of-the-moment kick. And Alice Ritter's combination of feminine romance and tough Parisian cool comes in the form of wrap blouses, peasant shirts, and high-waisted pants. Dig in!
