Alessandra Rich Looks West for Her Net-a-Porter Capsule


alessandra-rich-sizedIn case you had any doubts, fashion is still heading West. After debuting at Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show in Dallas and picking up speed at the Cannes Film Festival, Western-inspired fringe, suede, and desert boots are still at the top of our wish list. It’s a trend that can quickly look costume-y—or worse, watered down—which is why Alessandra Rich’s new capsule collection for Net-a-Porter feels like a breath of fresh air.

Instead of trying her hand at ten-gallon hats and clunky cowboy boots, Rich infused her trademark aesthetic with subtle, seventies-inflected Western nods. Her signature curve-hugging dresses, fluttery ruffles, and miles of French lace were teamed with snap-front shirts, silk head scarves, studded leather belts, and pale blue chambray accents. While other designers are aiming for a rugged, androgynous vibe, Rich is focused on the femme fatale in floor-sweeping skirts and Victorian blouses. That’s a role we wouldn’t mind playing.

A first look at the collection premieres exclusively here on

The Alessandra Rich capsule collection will be available exclusively at in July.
