It’s no easy feat to blend 1940s romanticism and modern It Girl style, but Smitten does it with aplomb. Launched by a team of New York designers in 2008, this chic women’s clothing line incorporates vintage elements like flapper fringe and batwing sleeves into its collection of mesh tank tops, loosely draping cable-knit cardigans and other separates. Deco-inspired details, from pyramid studs to sunburst beading, also make appearances on Smitten’s oversize tunics and tees. Launched by NYC-based fashion designer Michael Simon, Smitten met critical acclaim almost immediately upon its debut and has graced the pages of <i>Women's Wear Daily</i> and other prestigious publications.
