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 Style.com.

The Alessandra Rich capsule collection will be available exclusively at www.net-a-porter.com in July.

Marina’s Must-Haves: Alessandra Rich’s Lace Gowns

Alessandra Rich

As I said yesterday, the spring gala season is upon us. When the time comes to dress up, Alessandra Rich’s lace gowns are all I want to wear. The white version would be perfect for spring and summer events, or I could choose the black style to don to warm-weather weddings, so as not to be mistaken for the bride. Rich’s approach to eveningwear is refreshing. These dresses are sexy and quirky at the same time. Which one to get? Black or white?
