Savvy fashionistas know a Cluny garment when they see one: It’s reliably feminine, subtly street-chic, and always has an unexpected edge. Created by designer Cynthia Steffe, Cluny is a playful clothing line with a cool, vintage-inspired look — Steffe’s signature aesthetic. Named after a lace fabric that was first produced in the 1760s, the label features leather leggings, gauzy dresses, mod frocks and fur coats, luxe knits, vibrant digital prints, and handcrafted embellishments. As one of the leading contemporary women's wear designers in the U.S., Steffe has defined trends several times during her long career. With Cluny, she succeeds once again.
The Ultimate Dress Shop: Little White DressesNow's the time to send your LBD on vacation and embrace the just-as-versatile warm-weather version: The Little White Dress. Whether you opt for crisp cotton or soft, feminine lace, this seasonal staple will carry you through just about any occasion the outdoor season brings (and no, you don't have to wait until after Memorial Day to wear it!). Take it to a polished, sophisticated place with a tailored blazer and heels, or get into the music festival groove by adding a boho twist. And as late spring days stretch into lovely, long summer ones, the only accessory you'll need is glowing skin.
