Since fall officially begins in September, the design team and I wanted to take a big step into fall, and embrace dark colors like black, coal and dark grey, accented with deep jewel tones such as Bordeaux, a rich purple, and a teal that we’ve named “dusk.” It’s a sophisticated and chic collection which has been dubbed “Secret Romance” and features romantic dance elements, a gorgeous floral print and lace details.
One of the key pieces – a full-length leotard – is very ballet-inspired, but you don’t have to be on your way to dance class to wear it. It is definitely one of our more daring and fashion-forward pieces, and my advice is to pair it with a long boyfriend blazer or a car coat, and some black moccasins or shearling boots.
I like to add cozy sweaters and scarves, especially medium-sized scarves that cover a little of the shoulders, to take my looks into fall. Ankle boots are also a great transition piece until it gets cool enough for thigh-high or knee-high boots.
