I went shopping with a client yesterday who blew me away when she tried on these interesting pieces from All Saints. Like most items in All Saints, they are black and a shade of grey. Good thing my client loves to wear grey.
A capelet with proper sleeves that creates an interesting silhouette. It’s fluid, but tailored in all the right places. It’s as fabulous on its own or layered over a long sleeved-tee or button-down shirt.
Drina Sweater Dress
This genius design is amazing. It has two short zip fastenings, one on the right shoulder and another on the right side seam under the armhole, so that you can zip the front panel in two places creating different silhouettes (the photos showcase the variations). Wear it as a dress with hose, boots, booties or pumps. Or wear it over skinnies.
Both pieces are non-itch and fairly refined. The capelet style sweater is a great way to jazz up a classic pair of trousers or a pencil skirt and does not bunch that badly under a coat. The dress or tunic is an easy “throw on and go” that makes a creative statement on its own. These types of avant-garde pieces don’t date because they aren’t trendy. They stand on their own like modern classics and have a high longevity factor.
