A + O Spring 2018 Presentation


alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet’s Spring 2018 collection represents artistic optimism. Set in Bendet’s re-imagined version of the Chelsea Hotel, the collection is featured in the rooms of the modern artists that she envisions inhabiting the hotel today. For Bendet, the collection inspired art and art inspired the collection. Bendet collaborated with a group of female artists who came together to create an interactive gallery of fashion and art. Each artist designed a “room” where their work set the stage and tone for the collection to be showcased. 

  The looks are styled with a juxtaposition of romance and rebellion. Soft floral prints are paired with pops of neon and studded leather chokers. Colored snakeskin plays against rainbow metallic stripes. Solid color dressing creates the new power statement in bold color hues. Rock n’ roll meets the bohemian romantic in organza, chiffons, and lace. Robes and kimonos punctuate in colorful prints and patterns. This is quintessential uniform for the artsy intellectual living in a world where she wants to uplift others and be uplifted.
