Nili Lotan Premieres Pre-Fall

-------

Specializing in wardrobe staples cut from beautiful fabrics, Nili Lotan has always taken a laid-back yet sophisticated approach to dressing. Since launching her namesake line in 2003, the Israeli-born designer has grown her business organically (no presentations, no publicity gimmicks), but things have recently been heating up at her Tribeca boutique/studio space. In November, Lotan became a new member of the CFDA, and last week, the designer showed her debut pre-fall collection. The latest lineup is a sampling of Lotan’s greatest hits, including long slipdresses cut on the bias from sumptuous charmeuse, slouchy cropped trousers with a slight drop crotch, and perfect silk blouses. Lotan’s use of color here—the aforementioned items came in vibrant shades of chartreuse, burgundy, and petunia pink—was a refreshing departure from her usual black-and-white palette. “Black-and-white has always been my world, but I can relate to these colors because they have the same level of urban sophistication. Burgundy is looking like the new black right now,” she told Style.com at a preview. “At the end of the day, I only create things that I would wear or can really appreciate.”
