Knitting is in Risto Bimbiloski’s Macedonian blood. A family tradition, expertise in yarn was taught from a young age in the Bimbiloski household. Risto made his bombastic debut when he showed a small collection of artisan knits to the honchos at Louis Vuitton. They hired him on the spot and Risto has never looked back, going on to show a line of womenswear under his own name at the 2009 New York Fashion Week. Today, his mother heads up production in their home country, while design is based in Paris. Risto was recently named a Designer to Watch by <i>New York</i> magazine.
No wardrobe staple is quite as beloved as the little black dress, and you’ll find a whole host of them here. These LBDs run the style gamut, from Risto's asymmetrical and puff-skirt frocks to Nomia’s one-shoulder and zip-front dresses. Cashmere cocoon vests, boleros and ruffle-hem tops also make an appearance.
Big deals on big names: Save on this illustrious selection that runs the high-fashion gamut. Check out standouts like casual threads in luxe fabrics—like Geren Ford's silk shifts and jumpsuits—and sleek cocktail dresses in jewel tones from Tocca and Laila Azhar.
Update your evening options with Risto’s worsted wool and jersey LBDs, cut to hug your curves and show off some leg. If texture’s more your thing, opt for the chunky knit tunics and cashmere coats, the latter with a lurex design splashed across the bodice. And don’t forget to mix in some prints, offered in graphic combinations of black, blue and white.
Sophisticated and understated, this selection of classic silhouettes and muted colors evokes a chic city-girl vibe, but with a twist. A breezy silk dress from Quail is transformed with semi-attached panels and a back slit for a flash of skin. And a lace panel lends a feminine touch to the Pencey racer-back tank. Risto’s printed scarves add a pop of color to the selection, in unique sky, storm and galaxy prints.
