If you are anything like me, you go through phases when every once in a while you de-clutter, part with half your wardrobe, re-organize anything remaining and slowly start incorporating new pieces in. Its because of this that I am extremely picky about what I introduce into my mix of things, especially with limited space and stereotypically small New York closets (remember when Carrie used her oven as storage in SATC ?) but I digressâŚ
Dressing for me needs to be simple and hit onÂ fit, comfort & quality. It starts with the idea that getting dressed just doesnât have to be that complicated.Â Having said that I still want bold & impactful but I also want easy & effortlessâŚopposing ideasÂ perhapsÂ but not really.Â I am firm believer that making a statement can be achieved with minimal effort required. And whileÂ âstatementâ dressing gets thrown around a lot, evoking connotations of loud, overworked items, I think statements can easily be achieved with volume, proportion, drape and silhouette
I partnered up with Eileen Fisher to style the New 7 Key Pieces for the seasonÂ which represent that very principal. The Mock Neck Shell, The Wide Pant, The Silk Tee, The Slouchy Pant, The CashmereÂ Tee, The Silk Tunic andÂ The Kimono Jacket
Each look I styled using these Key Pieces makes a statement without trying too hard, thatsÂ something that I can get behind all day everyday!Â Thoughtfully chosen to workÂ togetherÂ to create the perfect base wardrobe, whether you incorporate 1 key piece, all 7 orÂ somewhereÂ in between…they are all, at root, meant to work withÂ yourÂ existingÂ wardrobe but also provide that foundation of items that will just always work, transcend time or trend and haveÂ versatilityÂ to spare!
With a perfectly timed mid-Summer launch, this 7 piece capsule collection offers trans-seasonal options you can wear now but will be your hero, go-to pieces in Fall.
Meeting certified recycling standards, using non-hazardous silk dyes and adopting methods in production that cut down waste, for the team at Eileen Fisher its not just about looking good its about doing good!
