Anagram by Gary Graham is a capsule collection of clothing based on designer Gary Graham’s eponymous line. Each item is an anagram (a rearrangement) of another – each fitted jacket and fluid, sensuous dress reinvented in a revised form. Known for his idiosyncratic, history-buff aesthetic, Gary Graham’s luxe-but-casual designer wear resonates with a dark, romantic intellectualism. His magpie-like bag of influences is vast: portraits from the Dust Bowl era, the raggedy majesty of Romani gypsy culture, antique botanical engravings, and ancient Persian wrestling outfits. These disparate sources of inspiration are transformed by Graham’s creative alchemy through cut and material, with luxurious silks, satins and wools garment-dyed to perfection. Made in New York City, each impeccably (de)constructed piece of Anagram apparel is versatile and layer-worthy, sliding onto the skin as smoothly as a t-shirt.
Aside from its ultra-feminine appeal, the beauty of the everyday dress lies in its throw-on-and-go ease. From pretty, printed frocks to neutral dresses perfect for the office — by Tart, Tocca, and others — these stunners require little more than tights, a chic pair of heels, and a cool fall jacket to make you look perfectly put together.
Take your street-style game to a polished place with these key pieces.
A must-have for the style-conscious who are constantly on the go? A wardrobe of dresses and separates that are just as wearable at the office as it is at happy hour. Find a colorful lot here, from silk wrap dresses and curve-conscious shifts to dressy blouses and playful skirts.
When we think downtown chic, we immediately think of Doo.Ri, Tart, and Leroy & Perry. So it’s no coincidence that all of those designers (and more!) are featured in today’s roundup of trendy separates. Think studded mini-dresses, leather panel dresses, fitted jackets, and borrowed-from-the-boys tuxedo pants.
