Catherine Malandrino's elegant, energetic dresses, shoes, jumpsuits, and other designs meld the romance of Paris with the vitality of Manhattan. Born in Grenoble, France and based in NYC, Malandrino achieved her star-making moment in 2001, when her Manhattan clothing and accessories store was featured in an episode of "Sex and the City." Since then she’s become one of the most successful designers in the world — collaborating with Lacoste on a sporty womenswear collection, creating the high-end line Malandrino, guest-judging on “Make Me a Supermodel,” and always remaining true to her vision. Her belief? Individuality is at the heart of fashion: No two women should look alike.

Look We Love: Bold Geometric PrintsForget demure and dainty florals — the eye-popping prints in this high-octane mix are made for those who favor bold statements. Silk tops, tanks, shirtdresses, and skirts get a major boost with attention-getting patterns that won’t fade into the background: Think saturated watercolor zigzags, lush tile motifs, abstract digital swirls, and mod geometric shapes.
The Ultimate Dress Shop: The SheathSay hello to summer's most versatile, timelessly chic piece: The sheath dress. Like all of the best-designed objects, its brilliance lies in its simplicity. A slim cut flatters every figure, while an unfussy silhouette makes it wearable everywhere from the office to date night. Start with one that flaunts your favorite assets—a V-neck for dècolletage, a higher hemline for legs—then dress it up or down to suit every occasion. A tailored blazer adds instant sophistication; statement jewelry takes it to ultra-glam territory. We dare you to find somewhere you can't wear yours this season.
