Amazing Grace: The Duo Behind Frame Denim Unveils Their Resort ’14 Evening Range-------
Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson presented their first Grace Resort collection this week on the rooftop of the Nomad Hotel. The show turned into a party, where editors, buyers, and friends of the designers enjoyed the (finally) warm weather, champagne, and some loud tunes. Cofounders of Frame Denim, the designers envision their woman’s daily wardrobe in denim—but when it comes time for evening, she’s decked out in Grace. The contemporary market is a crowded one, but these Swedish designers are proposing something special with their take on slick evening dressing. Grace’s sexy LBDs, cool tuxedo jackets, and sleek jumpsuits are going to be a hit when they arrive in stores. And the price point ($260 to $600) will only feed the frenzy. Grace’s debut collection, which was unveiled in London in February, will be hitting Net-a-Porter, Bergdorf Goodman, and other retailers soon. Needless to say, we’ll be buying a piece or two.
