CFDA award-winning fashion designer Doo-Ri Chung is known for her effortless, unfussy aesthetic: Think loosely draped jersey dresses and subdued, neutral color combinations. Though she’s no longer with the brand that bears her name — in 2012, she left to become the creative director of Vince. — Chung’s influence is still apparent in Doo.Ri’s collection of resortwear, accessories, and flattering accessories. Pops of bright colors like hot pink and turquoise make the label’s silky printed dresses and princess-sleeve tops ideal for work as well as evenings out on the town. These days Doo.Ri is a property of the Tharanco Group, which also owns Poleci.
With the weather getting frostier, it's time to consider ultra-warm outerwear. And the avant-garde cuts, eclectic fabrics, and artful details that define the sleek, modern picks in this sale are guaranteed to spice up your coat closet. We’re partial to the wool overcoat with ruffles and and a bow by Valentino; the graphic down jackets by Emilio Pucci; and the floor-sweeping wool numbers by Yohji Yamomoto.
Versatile and flattering, neutral hues have long been a wardrobe staple—and the lot here proves just how striking a muted palette can be. Find cool jackets and blazers; soft, diaphanous dresses that beg for a bold sandal; silky tops to tuck into pencil skirts and shorts; and an array of chic, everyday handbags in buttery leather.
Want to know what unites these three designers? Give them a simple silhouette and watch the creative, artful approaches they take to make them their own. It’s what makes the cutting-edge pieces in our selection of favorites eminently wearable, but decidedly unusual. Look for twisted hemlines, abstract prints, and avant-garde patchworks, among other inspired details.
Four design talents showcase their signature brands of femininity in this sale. Doo.Ri pours on the silk jersey in dresses, gowns, blouses and skirts. Proenza Schouler makes magic with velvets and brocades in glamorous metallics and jewel tones. Richard Chai goes aflutter with chiffon frocks, and Thakoon’s suits temper tailoring with flirty details.
