Design aficionados have long loved Kelly Wearstler's impeccable sensibilities--and rightly so! She's responsible for the iconic look of the Viceroy hotels, the author of three beloved books, and her incredible interior design work is feted in all the best magazines. Oh, and did we mention her many product collaborations, which have resulted in her own china, linens, rugs, textiles, and wallpaper collections, plus the fact that she has a home accessories line and in-store boutique for said items at Bergdorf Goodman? (Hello overachiever!) She's truly a shelter savant and gifted with an insanely talented eye, which is why we were so elated to learn that Wearstler was bringing her unique, oft-emulated vision to the fashion world. This fall marks the launch of her 80-piece ready-to-wear collection, which includes everything from stunning cocktail dresses to beautiful blouses in an array of painterly prints to noteworthy outerwear options, all available at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. In addition to clothing, she's also launched a line of accessories, including scarves and jewelry, which are currently in stock at Net-A-Porter. As if this wasn't enough, Wearstler's also getting into the e-commerce game with her own web boutique, which will be up and running in mid-September and feature exclusive products from her fall collection. All in all, it's an exceptional debut from a true visionary--truly one of the strongest we've seen in years--which is why we're spotlighting a few of our favorite pieces in today's Line We Love. Read on for all the details and prepare yourself to fall in love with this incredibly chic collection!
Gypsum Striped Blazer ($495) in Coral/Black
Finding a blazer that's both versatile and striking is a challenging thing, which is why we're obsessed with Wearstler's striped iteration. Available in coral and black on the designer's site in late September or in black and white at Bergdorf Goodman now, this hip-length jacket will look wildly chic with everything from jeans to cropped trousers to sleek pencil skirts.
Serpentine Fringed Dress ($845)
One of the things that we admire most about Wearstler's debut collection is her ability to put her own personal twist on classic pieces, and how that transforms them into wholly unique items. Take this little black dress, for example. It has an ultra-alluring low back, small bustle, and lovely ruched silhouette, plus it's made from fringe-detailed satin, making it anything but ordinary!
Pyrite Embellished Brass Necklace ($425)
Some pendant necklaces are too long, some are fearfully short, but this incredible piece is absolutely, completely, utterly perfect. It reminds us a bit of a fashionable medieval flail, and since we're longstanding fans of jewelry that looks like weaponry, this is a decidedly good thing.
Samovar Skirt ($295, available on 9/22) in Ivory/Black
In addition to using unusual fabrics, Wearstler additionally uses unexpected prints to update classic silhouettes. This ivory and black skirt is the perfect example of this idea; a simple cut made fresh by what appear to be hand-drawn watercolor lines. If a mini isn't your thing, but you love the clean stripes, be sure to check out the Tanzanite Striped Blazer ($395), which has a similarly sophisticated look.
Wire Wrap Ring ($195, available 9/22)
If some of Wearstler's larger baubles seem to make too much of a statement for you, consider this ring as a subtler way of incorporating some of her signature style into your wardrobe. We love the way she's caged the lapis cube, resulting in a striking juxtaposition of organic matter and architectural flair. If you can't wait for the ring to hit Wearstler's online boutique, you can also order it via Bergdorf Goodman (800.558.1855) now.
Tide Pants ($245, 877.634.6263)
In addition to painterly stripes, Wearstler's also created a number of pieces that feature a tie-dye-meets-marbleized print, like these on-point, tapered-leg trousers. The taupe and black palette means these pants will play nicely with whatever's already in your closet, plus they have a carrot-like shape that is flattering for almost any figure.
Pyrite and Brass Bangle ($295)
If you're familiar with Wearstler's home accessories collection for Bergdorf Goodman, you probably know that the designer is fond of geometric accents. Delightfully, we can trace this theme through her jewelry collection too, as evidenced by this pyrite cube bangle. This piece simply screams "NYFW," and would add a tough-luxe touch to any look.
