Without a doubt, a collection I look forward to previewing is that of the supremely talented Alice Yim New York. She produces instantly wearable, modern and minimalist pieces, all highly feminine and very sophisticated. One of my favourite little black dresses ever, the Raina Dress (above, photo by Lydia Hudgens) is a design from Alice. Rather than being ‘on trend’ for any particular time of year or a mere fashion fad, Yim’s styles will easily transition from season to season. Her collection for spring summer 2013 is a dreamy assortment of beautifully fitted and draped skirts and dresses, chic tailored shorts and pants, vest tops and rompers. My favourite piece is the Posy Skirt in Onyx - a wonderfully full lace design with leather waistband.
You may, Blog Reader, be drawn to the lemon chiffon and canary yellow Amaryllis Dress. It has a lovely criss-cross back detail and handkerchief design – perfect for summer.
I can’t stress enough how much I want you to go to Alice’s website right away and explore her collection further. You can now SHOP Yim’s collection online – click HERE to browse.
It’s been a while since I wrote a little update on my life, Blog Reader! I’ve been so hectic at work lately I’ve had less time to write these past few months. On the other hand I’m busy planning lots of exciting travel and other adventures to share with you over the summer. Drop me a note below if there is anything you’re interested in seeing on the StyleOnTheCouch over the next few months – designer features, outfit posts etc. Coming up I have the new line from Al & Alicia to share with you, another of my ‘Little Black Dress’ with a twist series and a few accessories I’ve been investing in lately. As always, thank you for stopping by to read. Come visit soon! Drop me a note on Twitter or Instagram if you’d like to say a more personal ‘hello.’
