Alice + Olivia Pre-Fall 2017 Collection Channels Kate Moss

That’s true, most of the latest pre-fall 2017 collections are all about the Forties and Seventies, but those who unapologetically love the Nineties will have something suitable for their tastes, too, thanks to the latest Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2017 collection, which got directly inspired by images of Kate Moss from the grungest decade of all.

Alice + Olivia Pre-Fall 2017 Collection

Although being predominantly Nineties-inspired, the Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2017 collection does feature a few Seventies-infused elements here and there, which nonetheless will particularly appeal to those, who favor the late Nineties over the early Nineties, namely when Seventies outfits à la Sienna Miller were slowly becoming the coolest thing around.

Although featuring a color-palette that is not that variegated, as it predominantly features blacks and off-whites, except for a few greens, blues and reds, the Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2017 collection definitely shows different versions of Kate Moss’ signature Nineties look, which mostly consisted of cool, heroin-chic slip dresses for the nights, and roomy, naïve staples for the days.

With denim aplenty interrupting both the more elegant and the daily looks, Alice + Olivia’s creative director Stacey Bendet Eisner made sure those who are always on the go also had something cozy, yet edgy to wear on a daily basis either at work or university, which at the same time could easily transition from day to night thanks to a few fashion tricks.

Full of separates, the Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2017 line-up treats us to essential elements that can function as must-haves to add to our wardrobes, such as the soigné kimono jacket with floral embroideries, or the floor-length denim skirt with a plunging lateral slit, depending on how you style or layer them with.

The latter is the focal point of this collection, as Bendet specifically focused on skirts to realize a line-up that could be as versatile as possible. “I wanted to make them more casual,” she told WWD. “I made them in a really light silk cotton so they can be dressed up or edged up with a leather bustier.”

As for the more Seventies-inspired garments, bell-bottom jeans, hippie tunics and botanical tunics surely help the collection get its one-of-a-kind versatile look, which got skillfully blended in with festival-ready vibes as well.

To make sure each one of her customers had something to wear, Bendet took the time to focus on the accessory line, which we all know is one of her seasonal collections’ most highly anticipated parts. This time around, the designer focused not only on the shoe line and on the bags, but on the sunglasses, too.

While for the shoes, she opted for chunky ankle boots either in leather or velvet, and for the bags she favored mostly neutral (yet slightly glittery) colors and simple structures, it is with the range of sunglasses that she had fun indeed. Oversized and refined with different frames, the Alice + Olivia pre-fall 2017 sunglasses line is probably Bendet’s most accomplished debut.
