Travels and obscure movie references are frequent starting points for Vena Cava's Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock, and their latest effort was no exception. A road trip to Death Valley and the (OK, maybe not quite so obscure, at least in fashion circles) 1970 flick Zabriskie Point influenced the dusty orange and yellow palette of their Resort collection, as well as the sweet Southwestern-style prints. An overall-style silk jumpsuit was a standout, as was a seventies-workwear-inspired chambray vest.

But the duo's real news was the debut of their lower-priced Viva Vena line as a full-fledged collection. What began this spring as a selection of printed eco-friendly tees has expanded to include stretchy tank dresses, mesh T-shirts, and cropped sweatpants with tribal-printed waistbands, all of which retail for under $200. "We priced it so you don't even have to think about it," Buhai explained. What their fans will be contemplating? How to get their hands on it all.
