L.A.-based clothing designer Corinne Grassini founded her chic women’s label Society for Rational Dress after studying sociology, of all things, and pattern-making. Named after a 19th-century English group that rallied against the use of constricting Victorian undergarments, SFRD exhibits Grassini’s love for defying trends and breaking rules. Classic but contemporary, SFRD’s drop-sleeve dresses, silk tank tops, lace-up ribbon shoes and other designs are architectural yet feminine, edgy yet easygoing. Accessories like the Valley Bag backpack, a rucksack with a fold-over top, resemble revitalized antiques; subtle metal accents lend the brand a rebellious spirit. With Society for Rational Dress, let fashion freedom ring.
Meet the new romantic! A marriage of traditionally feminine and tough details give this crop of dresses, separates and accessories a distinctly modern appeal. Bows, lace and rosettes adorn dangerously high stilettos; drapey silk chiffon tops are less romantic thanks to dangling chain links; and a ruffled silk dress feels more punk than girly when rendered in eye-popping fluorescent pink. There is plenty to fall in love with.
From borrowed-from-the-boys button-downs to silk tanks rendered in rich jewel tones, find all the tops you'll love wearing this season. Also on offer, layer-friendly tanks, organic cotton styles, lightweight cardies, and silk styles that look great paired with denim or tucked into a pencil skirt.
Consider this sale your go-to source for an extensive range of designer apparel. From floor-sweeping dresses, to artful downtown-style separates, to relaxed loungewear, find nearly every sartorial need addressed by a slew of of-the-moment labels.
This perfectly edited selection proves just how striking neutral colors can be. Of particular note are the pieces by Tart and Daryl K, which include a floor-sweeping maxi frock and a provocative, flesh-toned mini-dress. For a touch of edge, Catherine Malandrino’s leather tassel halter dress and Gold Hawk’s slouchy silk harem pants hit the un-muted mark.
