Alice + Olivia Pre-Fall 2015 Collection

The Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2015 collection was inspired from Loulou de la Falaise, the famous Seventies style icon and the muse to Yves Saint Laurent. “I loved her eccentricity and her strength,” said Stacey Bendet, the creative director at Alice + Olivia. “She wasn’t a passive person.” She skillfully managed to combine Falaise’s charming bohemian style with the femininity of the Forties getting a unique conglomeration of patterns, colors, shapes and design details that instantly charm. “A lot of the fabrics have a vintage feel, but everything is mixed up to be made modern,” Bendet explained. “She was this very powerful woman, and I wanted the clothes to feel strong.”

Bendet is well known for her skill to show a variety of trends, styles, fabrics and patterns in a single collection and although the new Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2015 collection has a single muse, it still manages to surprise with the diversity of the pieces available. The collection starts with a riot of pieces decorated with mosaic and baroque patterns and splashes of bright shades, including orange, red and aqua blue. The Seventies gypsy vibe is present throughout this range of pieces, from the high-waisted printed maxi skirt matched with a delicate see-through black top and the V-neck printed maxi dress with an asymmetric hemline to the lush brocade full skirt in a bright orange shade and cut at the tea-length, which is boldly paired with a brightly printed V-neck blouse. The floral brocade knee-length dress is quite modest and can be a great fit for formal parties too, despite looking slightly eye-popping thanks to the bright orange shade used. When topped with a colorfully graphic patterned poncho, it looks even bolder and folksy.

The navy blue palazzo pants matched with a flowing blouse in the same shade are just a dream for those big fans of the elegant and feminine style with minimalistic accents. Then we also discover more Seventies inspirations, including suede pieces, folksy vest and ponchos, a gypsy-style leopard printed maxi skirt, a disco-ready sequined mini dress and high-waisted skirts skillfully teamed with turtleneck cropped tops or skin-tights sweaters. Army green used for an array of stylish designs brings military motifs to the scene, which look simply spectacular spiced up with retro and feminine vibes.

Perfectly tailored suiting and lace and handkerchief maxi dresses provide classiness to the entire Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2015 collection, while the occasionally used leopard patterns and snakeskin motifs give a subtle wilderness to the designs. And we surely love those fringed black skirts coming in different lengths and looking so special and luxe. Once again Bendet has managed to present a collection that targets different tastes and styles.
