Inside the alice &olivia by Stacey Bendet Spring Summer 2020 NYFW Presentation
It was quite the scene at the alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet Spring Summer 2020 NYFW Presentation that was held yesterday, Monday, September 9, 2019 in New York City.
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.
SS20 introduced an exclusive collaboration between alice + olivia designer Everard Best, (EV BRAVADO) the designer behind Murder Bravado and Who Decides War menswear labels. Best brings his singular style of hand embroidered, dyed and distressed denim to womenswear with alice + olivia SS20; in the midst of the show, was stationed in a laboratory vignette, a cascade of color descended around him as he artfully live-painted pieces for the alice + olivia collection, turning the canvas of Bendet’s denim range into a physical gallery of wearable works of art. The looks will sell with the collection in alice + olivia stores and retailers worldwide next Spring.
Guest enjoyed delicious Glenlivet infused ice cream while waiting in line outside the venue. The ice cream cart showcased this season’s hero print. Once guests arrived inside the venue, they were presented with alice + olivia’s first vignette- “Field of Dreams.” Models perched on a sprawling field of lavender hills with Glenlivet bottles interwoven into this colorful aromatic fantasy.
Mia Moretti and Margot from The Dolls set the mood with curated dj set and violin performances. Volkswagen further enhanced the dream-like vision with the iconic Beetle Final Edition, wrapped in the alice + olivia hero print for Spring 2020. Guests were able to partake in the model set experience with pictures inside and around the VW Beetle.
