Alice + Olivia - New York: Spring 2010

(NEW YORK) It was all about la femme francaise at Alice+Olivia. For starters, the presentation was shown against three painted French backdrops, including Paris streets, bridges and Le Tour Eiffel. The Plasticines, a rowdy girl band from The City Of Lights played for guests and of course, each look oozed that je-ne-sais-qoi that everyone craves but only French girls can master. "I wanted to take a rocker feel and give it a softness and to me, Paris has that," said designer Stacy Bendet. The collection contained a number of standout looks: a soft nude dress draped with crystals was the choice look for evening. Fluttering white dresses and skirts were topped with rough leather jackets in black and tan and a draped violet tulip skirt paired topped with a lilac top called to mind Paris in the spring.
