Soft tailoring is Anne Valérie Hash
's main gig. Comfy isn't a word that gets used much in fashion, but maybe it should. It's the reason why shoppers respond to her jackets that slouch on like a sweater and crossover waistline pants. Practicality isn't a quality that gets cheered much, either, but Hash embraces it, whipping up blazers in a Japanese technical cotton that are completely reversible. She's even got a "dress in a bag" in her new pre-collection. Take it off and you can stuff the whole thing into one of its gathered sleeves. If that cobalt jersey number was more marketing gimmick than anything else, it showcased Hash's gorgeous color sense. The same shade of blue was used as a waistline accent on a great-looking terra-cotta all-in-one. Jumpsuits are doing well for the designer in stores, so she added several new styles to the lineup. There's no reason to think they won't perform just as well.
