Throughout the week, the buyers from Kirna Zabête, Henri Bendel, Intermix, and more will tell us which runway looks they plan on stocking. Today, Sarah Easley, co-owner of Kirna Zabête, shares her picks from the recent collections. She loves Narciso’s coral dress, Tuleh’s caftans, and Derek Lam’s leopard silks.
Narciso showed a very strong, confident collection — it was very signature Narciso. He expanded on his usual subtle chic with some rich ornamentation. The sleeveless coral dress (worn by Tanya) with navy floral embroidery, and the purple and black dragon-lady finale were great surprises and my favorites.
Tuleh had lots of ideas and color. Uptown, chic (almost tongue-in-cheek chic) Easter Sunday suits were followed by bright, trippy prints. I loved the painted leather top with the neon print skirt. I loved the lamé bikinis with grand, printed-chiffon caftans. The label’s wacky, brilliant dark humor always shines through.
Derek Lam’s collection was softer and had more color and prints than his last — a big change from fall. It was wonderfully styled and so feminine. This is what I want to wear, especially the leopard silks.
