alice + olivia Spring/Summer 2020 is a modern bohemian field of dreams. Across the collection, color block dressing is highlighted with dramatic new shapes anchored by strong pants, a nod to the trouser core of alice + olivia’s brand DNA. Voluminous sleeves, legs and skirts imbue classic sportswear with couture presence, while engineered floral prints and fine embroidered details transport the imagination into the fashionably surreal. SS20 also introduced an exclusive collaboration between alice + olivia and Murder Bravado designer Everard Best, a rising fashion star known for his singular style of hand embroidered, dyed and distressed denim.
At this season’s show at Root Studios, Designer Stacey Bendet’s fashion dreamscape unfolded in a series of nine transportive sets, each revealing a realm of the collection. In a field of lilac saturated flowers, a sky blooming with pink clouds, a minty pristine kitchen, and a bright buttercup pool, tailored and embroidered Spring/Summer looks seemed to have sprouted from their colorful surroundings. “When the colors are right in a space you exhale and tune into your own interior,” Bendet says, “I dream in color and these rooms are fashion dreams come to life.”
