Founded in 1978 by Munich-based knitwear designers Margaretha and Wolfgang Ley, Escada quickly ascended to the upper echelon of high-end fashion brands by combining contrasting patterns and textures into highly original combinations — think a black woven tweed jacket embellished with multicolor fringes, or an asymmetrical knit dress marked by brown, red, and black color blocking. A favorite label among celebrities and royals, Escada infuses its women’s clothing, sunglasses, shoes, and bags with a distinctive jetsetter appeal. Silky fabrics, ultra-feminine silhouettes, and classic cuts give each Escada design a timeless and polished quality that will make them some of your most beloved go-to pieces. In addition to clothing and accessories, Escada has developed a luxurious perfume collection that includes Magnetism, Sunset, Into the Blue, and Marine Groove.
Ladies, you may have to wear a suit to work, but by no means does it have to be boring. Take a cue from the runway's fresh iterations (bold colors, leather details, striking digital prints) and stock your closet with bright silk button-downs, draped pencil skirts, tweed blazers, and more sharply tailored pieces, made to mix-and-match all season long.
The days when suits were strictly boardroom attire? Long gone, thanks to spring 2014’s fresh take on the matching top-and-bottom combo. “We saw so many matching sets on the spring runways, and it’s a nice way to inject color and print into your daytime look,” says Joyann King, Digital Director of Harper’s Bazaar. Her smart advice for wearing it? “I definitely recommend buying the full ‘set’, but with plans to style the pieces individually, as well.” Let her chic Suno look inspire you, then shop the sale to get in on the matching action this season.
Get your hands on wardrobe steals from favorites like Haute Hippie and Nanette Lepore.
