We were pretty much sold on the Lela Rose collection the minute we tasted the cookies in our gift bag, homemade straight from Lela’s kitchen. It turns out, the clothes were just as mouth-watering as the sugary treats.
Inspired by contemporary German painter Gerhard Richter, Rose translated scraped prints and “hazy and obscured imagery” from canvas to fabric to create a frothy, abstract collection with a water-color palette.
Lela Rose die-hard Brittany Snow sat pretty in the front row in a blue and cream Richter-esque printed dress paired with gray knee highs, straight from the runway. Along with an array of dainty peplum, strict seamed, and cinched bow frocks and feather embroidered skirts, the collection featured some striking floor-length numbers. Among our favorites were a black and white plaid chiffon strapless gown layered over a green long-sleeved shirt, a mint brushed chrome gown, and a dip-dyed gray and white gown with a veiled shoulder.
Models wore shoes from Rose’s latest Payless line, and we have to say–they’re amazing. We can’t wait to pick up a pair of camel suede platform wedges with a red wave detail on the sole.
