Alice + Olivia Spring 2015 ready-to-wear

Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet took inspiration from the modern art installations often hosted at Versailles, transforming one of her old friend Lola Schnabel’s paintings into a print. The designer also created a digital print out of a photo she took of the gardens during the trip, and showed a sweater embroidered with little crowns and other remembrances of Marie Antoinette’s court. There were a lot of ’70s influences, too—handkerchief dresses; high-waist, wide-leg trousers—many inspired by her mother’s wardrobe from the era. There were ’50s-style tea dresses and beaded gowns as well. Certainly, it was a lot—39 looks in all. Here are my 12 favourites.
