You know those items of clothing you purchase with the idea that you'll wear them over and over forever, eventually someday passing them down to your daughter or granddaughter or some cute kid you babysit? Katie Ermilio for Steven Alan -- the NYC-based designer's new collaboration with the store where the cool kids shop -- offers those clothes.
The four-piece capsule collection is perfect in its pared-down simplicity: There's a baby blue, sleeveless cotton shirtdress with ruffled waistline; an oversized, powder pink silk blouse with Peter Pan collar; a sleek yet boxy navy neoprene sweatshirt and a varsity-style cashmere jacket with flat gold buttons -- all ideal for mixing and matching, dressing up or down.
Priced from $175 to $650, the collabo isn't cheap -- but considering Ermilio's mainline designs generally carry price tags upwards of $1,000 at places like Barneys and Moda Operandi, it's kind of a steal.
